This is the grandfather of all ´Shadow´ bikes today. Honda introduced many new ideas on this bike, but the biggest change was the style. The low seat, swept back lines, the extended forks, teardrop tank, all lent to a look that is still going strong in the Shadow of today. This was the first purpose built cruiser. The engine had a unique offset dual-pin crankshaft that achived perfect primary balance. The Sprague (one way) clutch allowed slight slip one way to elliminate wheel chatter when down-shifting at high RPM. This bike was the debut of the three valve, twin plug head also. Hydraulic valve adjusters, electronic ignition, cam chain tensioners, hydraulically actuated clutch and front brakes, brushless generator, shaft drive, all were things that Honda added to make this new bike low maintenance for the rider. If you want to ride, not tinker, the Shadow is the bike for you.
