1971

  1. Project Logs
    Just completed my frame off rebuild. This is the 1st bike I've owned. I bought it for $500 but it was in pretty bad shape. Lots of parts missing. Anyway wanted to post some pics cause I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Looking back I wish I had spent the money to get the frame powder coated...
  2. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    I recently added an SL175 to my collection of bikes, previously restored by its last owner before being stored for 2 years. Clean gas and started first kick! Freed off a stuck float and now runs like it's new. Huge fun! Anyway, despite extensive searching I cannot find the tire pressures...

    Hello, I am currently looking at buying a 71' CB350 as my first bike. Not sure of the miles yet or what exact model, however, I am just wondering if all of the CB350 (71'-74') tanks are all the same size. I list these years because it is mostly what I have seen. I look at some of the pictures...
  5. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hey all, I took the bike out yesterday and a few blocks from home I heard a noise and then instantly lost the use of my rear brake, the pedal locked in place. I got home to discover that the retaining bolt which holds the outer case of the drum brake at the 6 o'clock position had fallen out...

    Not the motorcycle's debut thread but we are moving along on the project and have the coil fixed and just finishing up getting the motor in shape again. The current side project on this is trying to find some turn signals. From what I can dig up it looks as if the SL-175 did not come with...

    Hello Honda Twins, This is my first post and I have been a reader of the site since I have been looking into these bikes and now that I have one of my own I had a question. A little backstory on the bike, it was a full frame off restoration done by a retired gentleman then sold to a not so...

    I recently bought a 1971 Honda CB175. It's my first bike and I have no idea what I'm doing. I wanted to learn how to fix, maintain, and ride motorcycles so I decided to jump right in! I put a new battery in it and it starts right up and idles decently. I want to change the oil, replace the...

    Hello! I've been riding my 1971 cb350 every day and it's been awesome. Lately there is a new sound that has me cautious. I when I give it a quick throttle and let off I get this "clack clack" sound. It also happens when shifting. Sort of sounds like a chain hitting something when having too...

    Hey everyone, new here. I'm a college student in central MA and I grew up working on engines, but I just recently got into working on motorcycles..very cool machines. What I have on my hands is a 1971 cb450 k4. I bought it in decent shape and have been riding it strong for about 4...

    So, this post is starting about halfway through my "restoration" project, but I thought it would be fun to share my progress. This bike used to be my uncle's, and it's the one he rode when carving up the winding roads of central Ohio with my dad when I was just a kid. Everything was there when I...

    I'd been looking for some time, without success, to find a 1971 CB175 K5 Super Sport worthy of restoration and haven't been able to find one. So, after thinking that it might well cost me $500 to $800 to buy a non-running bike worthy of restoration, and probably another $2,000 (or more) to...
