Remember the HONDA Soloaktualisiert 30.09.2010 | erstellt am 30.09.2010 | von Th. Beeskow (onlydax)
Only a few of this wonderful bikes found their way to Europe. The Honda Solo was a real Retro-Style bike like the old german ones from Zündapp, DKW or MZ.
How the Solo got its name:
The Solo’s name is intended to capture two different meanings of the English word: (1) (noun) a singing or musical performance by an individual; or (2) (adverb) individually; to perform individually. The Solo’s name is intended to convey the image of a bike the owner chose himself or herself to present his or her own individual performance; a bike with a unique design.
