1968 cl175 (k0) $500

It got this yesterday for $500 with title, and shop manual!

See all the pics (larger than what is posted in this thread) here: http://home.comcast.net/%7Ebmwmtech/...sed/index.html


The blue paint held its color great all these years, but unfortunately, has a lot of chips (which have started to rust) on the leading parts of the tank. The chrome on the rear fender is wasted, but I should be able to save the rims, front fender and exhaust. The muffler heat shield is broken at one of the slots, which is very common on these. I have a complete spare exhaust that I may use instead.

The most immediate problem, though, is the kicker shaft is broken. I have another (untitled) '68 CL175, that, for now, I'll swap motors with to get this one running.

The inside of the fuel tank is very clean, and the engine feels to have good compression, though, I can't really test the compression until I replace the kicker shaft -- any idea where to get one?

The plan is to replace the various chrome parts with better ones I already have, swap the motor, and get it running. I'll then just enjoy riding it while I complete the 1967 CL160 that I'm working on (see project log here: http://www.hondatwins.net/forum/view...60+restoration ).
