During a quick weekend trip down to Connecticut I ended up running into someone who wanted to get rid of an old Honda CB motorcycle. This is a true “garage find” with all the original parts intact and less than 5,500 miles. This will be my 2nd vintage bike restoration, the first one being a 1978 Honda CB 550. Although I’ve been in the market for another late 70′s CB this free 1982 was just too hard to pass up!
Here is the priority list… we’ll see how quickly we’re able to make it through this:
- Carb Rebuild
- Gas Tank Electrolysis and Sealant
- Replace Piston Rings, Head Gasket, Battery, Tires
- Fix Front Brakes
- Seat/Handlebars Customization
