Here's to hoping the 2013 CBR250 and CRF250L's sell well, so future generations will have something to find in the barn.

Very cool, I don't think I've ever seen a vertical odometer before.

They were relatively fast on acceleration in their day. Nice find!

CL Honda

[ I can't really test the compression until I replace the kicker shaft -- any idea where to get one?

Try here: http://www.charlies-place.com/

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 ).

Re: those old Honda bikes on this page - I don't know how far they would go back to, but a word of caution if you ever take one to a dealership... Way back when I was young and didn't know how to work on bikes I had a CL200 which I guess needed a tire or something, so we took it to a dealership.

They replaced the twist-off gas cap with a key-locking one as some type of recall notice, and I hated that thing. If you let a Honda dealership have the bike at all, keep your gas cap with you; don't let those f@%$^'s take it.

This is so ridiculous, it's awesome. Make sure you get a nice open-face metal flake helmet to match.

That appears to be an original exhaust on it too. That's probably worth a grand by itself. Nicely done.

Lets see the sword handle close up, wondering if they used proper cutler's rivets in brass.
