I found this to be an interesting read.

"Perfection, one hundred percent, ten out of ten—that’s what utter domination looks like, and it also happens to be Honda’s 1966 250cc motorcycle World Championship Series record. With GP racing great Mike Hailwood in the saddle of the incredible RC166, Honda easily secured that year’s rider’s and constructor’s titles, an accomplishment he repeated in 1967. The RC166 would still be a legend today if its only accolades were for competition success and sheer physical beauty, but there’s much, much more to it than that—beneath its delicately shaped fairing and iconic livery there’s a hidden universe of miniature mechanical magic."

Some years ago my wife bought me a book called Classic Superbikes From Around The World.
There's a two-page spread on the RC166, but there's also an article on a 125cc racer that Suzuki developed, the RS67 Racer. 12 speed V4, 124cc, top speed 136mph!! When you think that both the Honda and the Suzuki had drum brakes front and back, I reckon it took guts to race them.
Piccy here of the Suzuki.

If you can get hold of the book, it's got some real golden oldies in it.
