I remember Dick Emery was a bike rider/enthusiast owning few Hondas and a BMW.
But who remembers the lovely Twiggy riding a Honda Express pulling up and saying “You meet the nicest people on a Honda”   in a TV ad

The van in background is apparently a BMC J4 of something like 1968 vintage,  that would agree more or less.
