Classic bang, timeless design


Honda’s strategy is to keep the Shadow being built as a simple motorcycle powered by a 745 cc, liquid-cooled, 52-degree V-Twin, SOHC, three valves per cylinder engine that doesn’t fall in the fykes of fuel injection. Instead, a 34 mm carburetor does the job while the gearbox is a five-speed, wide-ratio unit, like on any big boy cruising machine. The shaft final drive requires minimum maintenance and it is one of those units that die hard, especially if made by Honda.

The Honda Shadow ACE 750, also known as the American Classic Edition 750 and also as the SA750 is the first member of the 750 series of Honda Shadow V Twin Cruisers introduced in 1997. The ACE was designed to compete with the looks and styling of the popular Harley Davidson motorcycles with the reliability and power of Honda enginieering. Being a Shadow 750 makes it one of the most reliable and affordable mid size cruisers of its time and is most notably identified by its long fenders, covered front forks, comfortable factory seat, 52 spoke wheels, and a chain drive which maintains a true old school appearance over newer shaft driven Honda shadow models.
