    New member from SC

    Well, I'm new to the site I guess. I have a few bikes. As far as Honda twins go, I have a 1971 CB450 that I need to get back together, just lost motivation. I recently purchased a 1973 CL350, which is fun for around town. It ran poorly when I purchased. All I did was adjust the valves, swap the points and set the timing. (p.o. installed points that weren't fully closing). I'm going to go through the carbs soon, they are weeping fuel. I have had a few cb750's, I have a CX500 project in the garage, BMW R100s, KTM LC4. I think that's all of the current inventory. Yeah, yeah, this thread is worthless without pics, so here is a few: (edit, I don't know why its posting my pictures sideways, they are orientated correctly on the computer. Feel free to tell me what I'm doing wrong.)

    Well, guessing you've accounted for all the bikes you have sounds like one thing wrong... you might have left one somewhere? Nice little herd you have there. I'd say welcome, but you've already found that you're welcome here from all the answers you've received, including one from the smartest guy in this group. So, here's some explanation as to what is happening with your pictures

    Greetings from a fellow SC resident and Hondatwins member! Nice collection of bikes you have. You’ll find plenty of resources for 350 and 450 projects here. What part of SC are you in? If you are not aware already there is a great bike show coming up next weekend in Hendersonville NC. Check it outHome

    Now that is dedication! Hope you make it, lots to look at, and there’s beer! I hope to be on my ‘74 CB450. With any luck Ancientdad may be there with his gorgeous 450 street legal drag bike. Fingers crossed
