    Wow. Great work on the CB175! You are lucky to have a great mentor, and access to a machine shop. I'm jealous! Welcome to the group.

    Bill, I have a set of carbs from a cb450sc on my bench at home. When I get home tonight, I can take some pics of the choke linkage and send them on.

    Thanks guys. It was the ignition switch. Getting the plastic back off of the switch was a little tricky. I polished the contacts and lubricated with dielectric grease. I used moly grease on the...

    Hello. The dripping fuel could be leaking needle/seat. It could also be a crack in the brass overflow tube inside the bowl. It could also be the drain plug/gasket. Maybe turn off the petcock and...

    The folks who I bought the bike from were the original owners. I'd like to think it was the PO and not a professional mechanic who made this mess. My orders are placed from Honda for carb gaskets,...

    A free bike is like a free dog. No such thing! Both my dogs were "free", until I took them to the vet and started buying dog food :) That sounds like a cool old bike. I'm not an expert, but I...
