The H-762 was introduced in 1984 as Hondo's Ibanez Roadstar copy, one of the first two models in the Formula 1 Series. Because of what an accurate copy it is, it is often mistakenly believed to have been made by Ibanez (or that the Ibanez was made by Samick; also not true). This body was later used for the Samick I model.

Made in Incheon, Korea by Samick
