Sounds like a total rip off of the beach boys

bradscorey is correct. If memory serves me the Beach Boys sing back-up on this version. I think they also did another Brian Wilson tune - Spring Little Cobra (but I could be wrong about that).
The most important historical fact of this song is that the term Honda was synonymous with a groovy little motorbike for years. Honda automobiles did not surface until years later, taking a big part of the market in the mid-70s after the Arab Oil Embargo. Throughout the 60's, Honda meant motor scooter or small motor bike, Honda brand cars weren't even known or available across the country until the 70's.
Wow...Chuck Girard of the Hondells went on to a very sucessful Christian Music career; starting with the band "Love Song"; whose two studio albums are considered classics of that early time in Christian Rock genre. He then went solo and I believe performs to this day.
thats why they sound like the beach boys
The Hondells were an American surf rock band that formed in 1964, and was the product of record producer Gary Usher.Their biggest hit, "Little Honda", was written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love of The Beach Boys. The Beach Boys album called All Summer Long which contained their version of the song had already been released, and Usher gave Chuck Girard , the lead singer on the Hondells version, a copy of the album and instructed him to learn the song.

It sounds like they used the same backing track
An interesting if inferior version of the Beach Boys.
