1972 Honda ATC90: James Bond's Honda
Engine 89cc, air-cooled, single
Power 8bhp Weight 90kg
“The US90 made its debut in the Bond film Diamonds are Forever, and was a big hit. It eventually morphed into a kind of utility vehicle for farmers, which is why it is called an ATC90, which stands for All Terrain Cycle. They were eventually made illegal in America as they had a tendency to roll over, which is when quads took over.

“The US90 is quite rare as it was only made for three years and many were crashed, but it is almost impossible to get any parts. The Ohtsu balloon tyres were made specifically for it and you simply can’t find them anymore. I’m told a set sold recently for over £1000.”
