I smashed my speedometer on a turn and snapped off the cable. I’ve already replaced the cable with the appropriate part number through 4into1 and assembly was a breeze. I had my first test ride the Friday before Father’s Day weekend, and noticed that the speedometer shot to 100mph...
Gertrude when she’s running, Dirty Gertie when she’s well… not. Seeing as I put her down in the middle of March, shes DG currently.
Anyways here’s what’s been done so far:
Replaced most cotter pins with OEM sizes.
Chinese eBay carburetors (temporarily).
Cleaned and rebuilt factory carburetors...
My name is Luca, and I’m from smack dab in the middle of California (in between Fresno and Bakersfield). I’m a recent follower of the forum finally turned member.
A few months back I bought a 1971 CL175 that’s in the middle of a brat style conversion. Currently she has a CB200...
Good evening from sunny and cheer filled PDX!
I’m a relative newbie to moto rebuilding, but I feel compelled in my soul to search out busted oldies and bring em to life. I’ve got limited space in my jobs main worksite, but thankfully have a master foreman and mechanic at my finger tips almost...
New to the forum and it looks like a great resource for a beginner restorer. My current project is a 1971 CL175 Scrambler. Everything is coming together nicely as parts are easy to find. My problem is the seat. The original is pretty much shot and it looks like there aren't a lot of...
I've been trying to chase down documentation (workshop manuals and owner's manuals in particular), for each of the motorcycles I have, and was having trouble finding a good scan of a Cl175 owner's manual anywhere online. I found an NOS one on eBay and bought it because it was...
Greetings from Eastern Connecticut! New to the this forum but no stranger to old Hondas. Have recently acquired this 1971 CL175:
Someone put CB exhaust on it at some point. Mostly complete aside from a missing horn and side covers. Most other bits missing in this photo I have but were not...
I have a new-to-me 1971 cl175 that is missing the headlight lens. Searching online parts sites I see the headlight for my cl175 is part number 33120-307-671 and is not available anywhere besides cmsnl for $$$. The same year cb175 uses headlight part number 33120-292-673 and is widely available...
I'm looking to replace the ~20year friction plates in the '72 CL175 K6 and I bought 5 Friction plates from Barnett. to replace the 5 Honda Friction plates I had. THe Barnett plates have a smaller Inner diameter which I think is good becuase that = more surface area in contact with the steel...
Hello, I am reviving a 1971 CL175 that was not running and was COVERED with rust when I got it. It had been left out, uncovered, on the coast for 3 years. Once I resolved some of the electrical issues that were preventing it from starting, I was able to get it running. This gave me confidence to...
Here's an update on the bike since joining the forum and posting my member introduction. I'd say I'm a little over half way through the new bike checklist (Basic Checklist for that New to You old Bike), and thank goodness for all the things it tells you to check.
I freed up the frozen clutch...

Hey guys, just learned about this forum a few weeks ago and man I am loving it! The forum you guys have made here is one of the most inviting communities I've ever seen, and I'm really excited to be apart of it. My current project is a 1972 Honda CL 175 K6 Scrambler that I've pretty much done a...
Looking for carb parts for my 1968 CL175 Sloper with the 22mm Kiehins.
The aftermarket rebuild parts do not work well.
Mainly after the needles and needle jets. I have one stock needle, it is stamped 063001.
What have you?
Anyone out there with the sloper 175cc engine with the "power jet" circuit carbs??
Can you tell me what the correct jet sizes are?
My carbs came dis-assembled and I cannot find info on where the jets belong.
I'm referring to the air jet at the top of the carbs that are fed to the air cleaner...
