I'd tend to fix the honda. Either the choke isn't closing enough, or the oil sensor like mentioned already, or the carb is gunked up a bit. Or it needs a starting fluid holder.
Honda got it's big start in cars with the CVCC engine, it had two separate intake manifolds to two different intake valves to run such a lean mix that the spark plug got a richer mix than the rest of the cylinder, allowed them to avoid catalytic converters etc. for years after everybody else had them. Morale of the story: hard to flood a honda, leave the choke on and most small hondas will keep running.
