  2. From HOG to CL350 50 years later - Bay Area

    Member Introductions
    I hadn't been riding for about 50 years. Back then my first bike was a Mustang. While in high school and college during summers I worked in a Texaco service station and one day I got a call to a customer's house to change a tire. When I arrived I saw two Harley model 74s, both chopped for hill...

    I am customizing a 1972 CB175. I am not looking to turn it into cafe racer and I really do not like the look of the skateboard seats or the hump back seat that most people put on them.

    Member Introductions
    Hello All, After a long search I scored a beauty 1972 CB40 off Craigslist last fall. I really wanted the big 70's twin and something a bit different than all the cb350's out there. Everything I saw previously was out of my price range or in extremely rough condition. Then, an ad popped up...

  12. Can't find a replacement 4 socket bullet connector!

    Electrical Discussion
    I've been redoing the connections on my 1972 cb175 factory harness, since a lot of them are broken or damaged.
