    We've been working lately on a new feature for the site, a dedicated section for Brochures & Manuals covering all Honda models worldwide. We hope that this new section helps build towards our goal of eventually becoming the top resource for all things Honda.

    There's a number of things you will see start to appear on the new section over the coming weeks/months:
    • Sales Brochures - Particularly useful to see what features and options were available on which grade of model.
    • Accessories Brochures - All those rare optional extras, particularly interesting to look at brochures from other countries.
    • Promo Material - General adverts, promotional material and memorabilia - mostly posterity.
    • Owner's Manuals - These will only be available where Honda has already produced and freely distributed a digital copy, scans of hard copies will not be allowed due to copyright law.
    • Wiring Diagrams - Immensely useful when working on mods.
    • Service Checklists - The best practices straight from the hand that feeds.
    • Service Schedules - These will be eventually ported across from the Guides & DIY section to help remove clutter there, though we will be working on getting down a better formatting for these first.
    We will have stringent rules in place from what we will allow to be hosted on our server. This will cover this in more detail shortly, in a nut-shell however freely distributed material from Honda is fine, and what costs to source from a dealer, and subject to copyright laws, is not.

    Important Note: Workshop manuals will not be allowed at all. There is a certain legal precedence we have to allow us to compromise on this in part, however we won't discuss it further at this time. This is something pretty serious and needs more consideration before we can give our official stance.

    @Ichiban I have some Honda brochures that I got from Japan in like 1995-96. Not sure if we can scan these somehow? Some are in larger or just weird format and won't fit normal scanner on a AIO printer. Unless we have access to A3 flat scanner?
