  1. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    I have a couple of different Honda bikes that I'm working on but currently I'm focused on my 1993 Honda XR 250. I've got it down to the frame and it's time to remove the stock paint and after some research I tried to use Aircraft (paint remover) to chemically remove the paint. After a couple of...
  2. Frame, Suspension and Steering
    So I just picked up a pretty clean '68/'69 CL350. Now that I'm digging into it I've started to notice a few issues that I naively didn't notice before. It looks like the frame is bent a bit by the motor on the left hand side of the bike (right near the kickstand - see first picture). What is...
