Shop Manual Honda CB77 Super Hawk

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in Documentation | 2 comments

I am a big fan of Robert Pirsig’s Metaphysics Of Quality. For one of my next LEGO projects I am considering modelling the motorcycle that Pirsig rode across the US, as described in “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance”. After a bit of research I found out that it was a Honda CB77 Super Hawk.

To be able to create a LEGO model of this motorcycle I needed a technical drawing. The motorcycle is out of production for 45 years and hence it was not directly available. Ken gave me the tip to check the Christchurch City Library and voila, they had an original shop manual in their archive. I scanned it, ran OCR over it and uploaded it as a PDF for your delight. You can now download the Honda CB77 Shop Manual.

  1. Thanks for the link to the manual. I’ve been looking for one of these for a while. I have 1965 CB77. If you need any further pictures or details of the bike for your model, give me a yell. I’m in Rolleston, Canterbury

  2. Had a CB72 during Uni days at Canterbury late 70s. Also I had a 77 called “Harry Honda” that had an English 5 speed gearbox.One of my brothers had a dream and my oldest brother recently sold his CL72 in Auckland to a restorer.
    I just bought 2 CL77 (yes 77′s) imported from the States, one is showroom and the other is a renovators delight. Never saw the CL77 in NZ only the rare CB77 (might have been some tax arrangements back when they first came to NZ). I live in Brisbane
