    My dad had the 250cc version of that - same colour and everything. Extraordinarily insipid performance - just had no guts at all.

    I owned a CM450. It was my third motorcycle, I was 17 and thought I was moving up to a four stroke.
    Looking back it was a gutless pig, and not the typical "bullet proof" Honda that many claim. I rode it, later my wife rode it, but it was milk-toast Honda at it's worse.
    I loved the riding position though with the buckhorn bars. I trimmed the seat to be a solo, I thought it looked great.

    both 1992 R100GS. serial numbers 57 apart. I'm glad mine (right) was repainted. I'm not a fan of the original purple color.

    Second project, my riding partner's '76 KZ 900, which sat in the corner or his garage for 10+ years. No headlight or front blinkers, crunched tank, and all the issues you encounter when something has sat unused for years.

    That's actually the blue bike in the background with fiberglass tank etc. before I painted the tins.

    Out for lunch at a little joint about 35 miles from here.
