    Great little bike and a real collector now. My Mat has one in boxes. Many years ago i rebuilt the bottom end and got it ready for him. I said now get a new cam chain and guides and your bike will be like new. He decided to store it. Have you purchased yours or just a jolly on it.

    They are great and yes you do then have a very handsome garage. Honda's are great bikes and those oldies are fantastic. Full of character.

    I have also got a soft spot for the older Honda's and have just bought an imported 1972 CL175, in basically good condition but needing some work to make it really nice

    My '78 GL1000 came with a '75 engine, so I decided to have some fun with it. It runs great and believe it or not is gentle on my back!

    Owner this 1971 Honda since 1981 should really get out on it, easier to use the Triumph
