    This one has some sensible improvements and could be a good deal. I thought Honda lovers should know about it. I'd be interested in it if I allowed myself more than one bike at a time.

    I picked up this derelict this week. Previous owner thinks it is a 69, but I think it is closer to a 66. It was an emotional purchase. My best friend owned a black S65. It was the first Honda I had ever seen and the first that I rode. He taught me the mysteries of foot shift and hand clutch as my previous mode of transportation had been a pieced together Cushman. Shortly after I bought my first Honda. A C110 Sport 50 which I liked better than the S65 and it was also cheaper which was a major factor. I'm looking for a tank, seat and a lot of other small bits. The engine was in pieces so I put a Lifan 110cc engine in it for the moment. Likely will be replaced with a 125cc engine soon. I bought it on Corn Crib Loop, so it's been tagged the Corn Crib Special. The Corn Crib Special 1.jpg

    I took my ‘69 CL350 for a spin today. Yes, I know it isn’t “correct”...lol

    My 65 Super Hawk. It will get better.

    20200925_194009_Film3.jpg I picked up about 4+ bikes worth of misc superhawk and scrambler parts. If anybody needs cl/cb 72/77 stuff odds are good I have it. Not much in the way of tins but I've got a lot of wheels and other hard parts.

    003.JPG $500 worth of Goldwing pieces. I built two motorcycles out of that pile, still occasionally sorting through some of the leftover boxes.

    I have enough parts to build 6 or so. I could probably stretch that number to 9 if I bought tanks, seats and side covers... Probably not enough motivation to do that many.

    Just picked up this '65 Honda C102 Super Cub pretty cheap. The top end was in a box and it's missing a couple nuts and bolts, but otherwise it's clean and complete. I bolted the motor back together today, cleaned out the carb and bought a battery, so I hope to see if it will run in the next few days. Bonus: the wife and kids love it!

    Update to above: cleaned the carb today, drained and refilled the gas tank, replaced fuel lines, wired up a battery, and it fired up with a few kicks. Runs like a Honda!

    I am refurbishing, not restoring, a 68 CL90:
    honda.jpg

    Its well used but runs and I am able to find new parts out of Thailand easy enough. When I was a child, I had one of these, you never forget your first one....while I haven't completely exhausted my search, does any one have a source for 18 inch tires and tubes?

    Thanks,

    I've been kind of thinking of picking up a old supercub, S90 etc as a project. I've got a running dual range Honda 90 engine sitting in my shed that would be an interesting swap.

    The engine mounts on the S90 are different from the CT90. Not sure about the Cub.

    Friend of mine had a 305 Scrambler back in high school, way back in 74. I still thought it was a cool bike when it was over eight years old already in 74.
