The RC30 was introduced to the US market in 1990 with only 300 examples being brought stateside. At $15,000 it was not cheap, but justified considering it was hand built by a specialized HRC team. In 1994 the RC30 was succeeded by the RC45. While the RC45 was produced in even smaller numbers than the RC30 (with only 50 coming to the US), the RC30 still maintains its legacy and cult affection.
The RC30 remains an icon and testament to Honda’s Racing heritage and legacy.

The Topper was the only motor scooter that the Harley-Davidson Motor Company ever produced.
The Topper had a continuously variable transmission, like most modern scooters. The engine was a 165 cc (10.1 cu in) single-cylinder two-stroke engine requiring a premixed gasoline/oil mixture. The starter was of the rope-recoil type similar to lawnmowers or the Lambretta E model. Unlike most scooters with enclosed engines, the Topper’s engine did not have a cooling fan.
The front body, front fender and floorboards of the Topper were made of stamped steel, and the engine cover and body were made of chopper gun-sprayed fiberglass.
