Bike: 1965 Honda S65
Paul Enz
Location: Titusville, Fla.
Occupation: Quality Inspector, Kennedy Space Center
Bio.: Paul has a thing for Hondas (like a lot of people we know!) and currently owns a 1965 Honda S65, a CL160, and an NT650 Hawk. He’s owned about a dozen motorcycles since his first (an S65) in 1965, and some years back his buddy Troyce Walls (whom we’ve featured in these very pages before) talked him into the idea of restoring a vintage motorcycle. It wasn’t long before Paul bought an S65 at a local vintage motorcycle show for the princely sum of $35. Roughly two years later, Paul had finished restoring the S65, doing everything himself except for the paint. “I like having it around because it takes me back to my earliest motorcycle experience, and folks really enjoy seeing it at the shows,” says Paul, who rides the bike occasionally and shows it at most of the bike shows around Florida, and at the Barber Vintage Festival each year.

Good looking bike! I have a 1965S 65. It is in need of a replacement stock Mikuni carb. I’m having a devil of a time trying to find one. The one that is original to the bike is too corroded and shot to be rebuilt. Attempts to do so have been unsuccessful. I would appreciate any leads that you may have. Thank you.

Paul, Love the bike! My brother bought a white one in 1965- the ownership has gone back and forth over the years. I distinctly remember the owners manual under the seat, my brother has never been able to open the seat! and basically thinks I made off with the manual, well he is sure it's not under the seat. I'm not sure if I remember how to open the seat, either a latch or a key lock for the helmet- could you verify how to get the seat open? Thanks so much. Will
