I think its a S65 head but would like to hear from the pros!

Do you have a battery latch by any chance? if so,you could add the latch with the head.Just tell me your price.

No I don't,but in the repair manual,they said,56 mph and 200 mpg...Thats not bad!

Bert
It would take about 3 miles of flat ground, a tailwind and maybe a 75lb rider to reach that speed. :p
Give it a go. Im sure you'll still have fun and thats all that matters. :)

The need for (more) speed may very well hit you at some point. But if you love your stocker, and your satisfied riding it at whatever speed it will go, you can not go wrong keeping a nice original, nice and original. If you decide you need to go like lightning, all you really need is a frame, some dollars and a plan. If you want to take it to 70mph, the frame is about all that will make the cut.

Looks like one to me it has the same flat surface on the edge of the combustion chamber. Here is the picture of mine and the box - any other pic's of mine just ask. As to power it is what it is. Pretty much like a CL70,SL/XL 70 etc and after all "From Mighty to Mini Honda has it all" was their sales slogan- if 65 isn't enough they had others

Thanks Gary s. Are you interested in selling yours? It looks very nice. It won't hurt my feeling at all if Bert wants to make you a offer. I'm really not itchin to get rid of mine.

Not at this time kirrbby,I always thought I'd get it machined so I could use it on a 70.
Bert96 you'll have to check and see if 65 and 70 valve sizes are the same or use the same part number---- Ok I just looked the valves up- intakes are the same,exhausts use different part numbers

Yeah,thats what I did finally.I bought the valves,springs and the rocker arms separately,its more expensive that way but could not find a kit for the S65.

Whats wrong with the S65 cam? All these cams fit like Honda engines,the S65 being the first use of that engine. What you need to find out is that cam an improvement or is it a lesser cam then the original. Here are the only specs I have seen of a S65 cam-
