Bought this a while back for grins. 1973 frame, 72 tank and side panels - ruby red, 74 engine. Frame had some surface rust and I let is sit without gas stabilizer over the winter. Did a quick clean, scuffed and painted the frame, did electrolytic rust removal on the tool box, passenger pegs/mounts and stands and painted. Cleaned the carbs. Putting it back together this weekend. Only ridden it a couple of times. No room on the trailer and I need to finish the TR4 so I'll be sending it on its way soon.

Gas tank was a little grungy inside so I cleaned it out. Put in a fresh battery. A little to my surprise, it fired up immediately - woot!

That's looking great! Nice work. Of course it fired right up...it's a Honda.

Nice. I taught my wife to ride on one of those. When she upgraded to a 750 Maxim it went on to two other beginning riders before I lost track of it.

Looking good! Wish I had something pit bike sized to trade you
