    CB175 K6 Restored and finished

    Hi All
    Thought you might like to see my bike now fully restored complete with period Craven top box also restored
    I have now done about 250-300 miles on it
    How different it is to my Honda CBF600 SA which I recently bought !!CB175 K6 Restored and finished-img_3114.jpg

    A beautiful job, well done... practically looks like it rolled off the showroom floor.

    Beautiful!........ Pipes indicate she is running lean, as double-wall pipe has to get really hot to yellow......
    Just thought to mention so you can adjust before it progresses much further.......

    Not wishing to be a smart alec, but those appear to be David Silvers pattern down pipes, ( angular bends ), which are only single skinned.

    Bike looks great, BTW.

    PS. You've left the petrol turned on ….

    Nice job. Straw-colored pipes are a nice touch, means the machine is actually being ridden, instead of just being looked at.

    Hi All
    Thanks for all the nice comments
    Richard you are correct, they are single walled David Silver pipes
    Did you notice the new genuine original grips which I have changed following your comments a while ago !!
    I only stopped to take the photos and then a quick ride !!

    Super nice! Attention to detail is wonderful. Just remember it only has to be perfect to you, not everyone else.

    Really excellent job on the restoration and it does look showroom fresh for sure!

    Amazing how these small displacement bikes were our everyday machines back in the day and we never gave it a second thought about the power, CC's, or if we could ride them timbuctoo and back. At least that was my take on them back in the late 60's and early 70's.
    CURRENT BIKES:

    1967 Honda - CL175 - Sloper scrambler model with low serial number.
    1975 Honda - CB400F - baby inline four - full rebuild/restoration
    1976 Honda - GL1000 Wing - full restoration - some custom additions.
    1983 Honda - CX650E Eurosport - rare model of a twisted twin - full restoration
    1983 Honda - CB1000C - Custom - large inline four - full restoration.
    1984 Honda - GL1200 Wing - last of the naked Goldwings - showroom condition.

    ^^^agree completely - I rode my SL175K0 all over Tampa and to both school and work after, had it for about a year before moving up to an SL350K1. It was totally reliable, got great gas mileage and was fast enough to ride it on the interstate locally.
