  1. Tires, Wheels, and Brakes
    Greetings, New to the world of vintage Hondas and I'm looking to pick some of your guys' brains about refurbishing and repair. To start, I've got a CB450 K6 that had a rear drum brake that was completely seized. I was trying to be careful with removing it, but the inner rim of the cover that...
  2. Project Logs
    Hi all! New to the forum and just started overhauling my first old-timer, the Honda CB125k3 from 1969 or as I call it, my fat Rhonda. I bought it about 4 years ago but was not able to really look at it until now! The bike did ran with a top speed of around 80km/h. I'm completely new in...

    Got broken side cover mounting tab on your motorcycle? Here is an easy way to repair them with simple stuff you have around the house. Watch me as I repair one one my 1983 Honda 550 Nighthawk. You can do this too.

    To remove a Frozen Broken Exhaust Stud on an old motorcycle can be challenging to say the least. I'll show you the hack I use to get this one out of a 1972 Honda CL350 twin without taking the engine out of the bike. It's a tough one, cause it's really stuck.
  7. Project Logs
    In this thread I hope to save the life of a truly dear friend. My trusty steed... my faithful companion. "Thumper," the 1981/'84 CM400/450 hybrid that I learned to ride my first miles on. That went down with me in a tangled mess time and time again as I pushed the envelope of what we - together...
  8. Miscellaneous Discussion
    Hey I'm new to this site but figured I'd give it a try. I'm in the process of restoring my 1978 Honda CB400A and need to replace the exhaust. The mufflers are pretty rusted but maybe salvageable, and the power chamber needs to be replaced(I'm gonna see what I can do but its pretty rusty)...

    OK so- I would like to know some tips any of you have to keep a bike in better shape without taking anything apart. For example user "frogman79" advised in a previous post to clear out the carbs before parking by just turning off the fuel a block away from home, something I had never...
