I think the CB175 is such a pretty bike and certainly one that brings back memories from the early seventies when I had one.

Far nicer than the CD.

Ah, I left the CB175 out as that was a very nice little bike - especially in red.  Certainly more attractive than it's ugly sister the CD175.
So as usual at that time when they had a success story on their hands, Honda had to "improve" it by relaunching it as the CB200, with that weird bit of plastic over the tank.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. People are going mad for CD175s, I know it's each to their own but to me: Grey porridge commuter. And, yes, the CB200, who could have designed that? surely not the same team who dreamt up the 400 Four! A friend of mine just bought a 185 Benly, that's SO bland you couldn't blame a car driver for saying: "I didn't see you!" To be fair though, it's road worthy, more than can be said for what I have bought
