CB200

A 1975 CB200 fitted with a 1970 CB175 gas tank and seat. The original tank was badly rusted and the seat torn when I acquired this bike several years ago. It had also been in a minor accident that had destroyed the headlight and the speedometer. These damaged parts were replaced with functional spares I had on hand. Installing the CB175 seat required the removal of the original seat mounting brackets that were welded to the frame. This bike has been my old reliable for quite some time but is beginning to have some engine problems which I have not successfully resolved yet. Click on the picture for a larger image.

CB77

This 1962 Super hawk was acquired in a trade for a CL72 Scrambler. The Scrambler had been given to me as a frozen engine basket case. Unfortunately the previous owner of this bike was a gorilla who liked to make sure everything was tight. Consequently there are many stripped threads in the top engine case. The cylinder walls were scored and the kick starter shaft was broken. I had a good set of used S8 cylinders, pistons, and rings which I installed along with a replacement kick starter shaft. I also Kreamed the tank, bought some rust free wheels, and replaced the left side engine case. The bike ran good before I put it away for another day. It still needs a lot of work but most of the parts are there. I will probable replace the upper engine cases with a good used one someday. Matching numbers are less important to me than the integrity of the cases. Click on the picture for a larger image.





This 1963 Super Hawk was recently purchased through an ad that showed up on the SFBay Area Craig's List. It is very complete but unfortunately the engine is frozen. I haven't done any work on it yet. One curiosity about this bike is the seat. It looks very much like a Super Hawk seat yet the rear mounts are too far forward on the pan to line up with the rear mounting holes on the frame. I think it might be off a very early (1961?) model Super Hawk but that is just a guess. If you have any idea what this seat belongs to please let me know. Click on the picture for a larger image. Update: It was confirmed by a "Honda expert" in Texas that this is a seat for a 1961 Super Hawk







This 1965 Super Hawk with 6000 original miles is the bike I most want to find time to work on. It was purchased new in Stockton, Ca and stored in a very hot place somewhere in Central Valley for many years. I know it was hot because both of the original tank badges melted and ran down on the cylinder head. I bought it from a friend, replaced the rusty front wheel and the rusted through gas tank (it had been put away with gas in the tank). After cleaning the carburetors and replacing the oil it started right up and I rode around the neighborhood. It ran so nice I was tempted lean into a few corners but then I remembered it still has the original 43 year old tires. I put it back in covered storage about a year ago.

CB/CL360

This 1975 CB360 was sent to Hawaii were it was turned into a very nicely done cafe racer. I will add updated pictures soon. Click on the picture for a larger image.

This is 1975 CL360 that I didn't really entend to buy but... After I got it I was given a truck load of 360 parts including a rebuilt engine still sealed up from the machine shop. This would make a great project because of all the spares that would go with it. I would like to do it myself but I am slowing down a bit and I may not get to it.

Others

A 1972 Triumph TR6RV. Man does not live by Honda alone. I had been hankering for an English bike for some time when I ran across this on craigslist at an attractive price. It was locked in first gear when I bought it and was missing a few pieces. The gearbox is fixed now and I have slowly been picking up parts on ebay. Click on the picture for a larger image.
