Hi everyone! I like many here just got my first motorcycle, a 1975 Honda CB200T in Orange. I came across it when we moved to Ohio and made new friends. The bike was sitting on the neighbor's back patio for quite some time. A couple weeks ago, with nothing to work on I decided I would offer the owner $50 and see if he would bite. He did, and now I'm the proud (reluctant?) owner of the rustiest thing I've ever laid eyes on. But, it's complete, the frame is good and the motor turns over. I haven't had a broken or stuck bolt yet so I'm pretty happy. The clutch, shifter and rear brake all work so all is not lost. It even came with the key! I'll be doing a complete tear down and restoration over the course of however long it takes and the budget allows. After handing over my $50, getting the title and key I proceeded to push the bike 2.6 miles back to my apartment (garage). Today I blew the budget on a new battery, a battery minder, bench grinder with wire wheels, torque wrench and miscellaneous other tools I needed an excuse to buy. General loose plan is to determine compression and commence with the tear down. Read along if you like, I'm sure I'll have lots of questions!
