    My 'lil Dream

    Finally got a clip of the 'lil Honda. all I have to do is remember the tutorial of how to imbed it here....
    Put some gas in the carb, and she started up on the fourth or fifth kick. Not a whole lot to do. speedo glass, tail light lense, put the petcock valve back together....new rubber...

    Beautiful classic bike!

    Now if you would be so kind as to swap the tank badges so the wings are flying forward one of my pet peeves will be served.

    Nice bike, looks to be a survivor in damn good shape and all original... my Dad and I refurbed a '64 CA72 in my first year of riding when I was 14, and he bobbed it a bit - but even though it was only about 4 years old at the time, it was left outdoors with a tired engine and badly neglected when we got it

    Well, as I stated in another thread, my 'lil Dream has been a bit of a nightmare....not really. I think I just have AADD. I don't have the energy to tinker more than two hrs. At a time on meckanicking. I failed to replace the O-ring on the engine side of the spacer the carb mounts on. My new NGK plugs fouled right up doing circles in the parking lot. Maybe unnecessarily threw new coil,wires ,caps at it. Pulled the plugs out today. Ran some fine wet/dry sandpaper tween the lectrode and ground. No sparky. Dug the old plugs out, sanded them a little, and had good spark. Go figure. Put 'em in, and she ran like a dream. Was too wet outside to run around the lot, so just warmed her up on the center stand. The idle screw seemed pretty tight, but I had my friend hold the throttle open and I gorilla' it in little more and got a decent idle. Got the odo out, and found the cable is broke. Finally making a bit of progress !
    Best,
