Hiya Folks!
Bought my first bike a couple months ago! 1975 CB200 - not running when I got it, did some cleaning and modifications and have it running now! (aside from some funky issues - I'll save that for another post)

I live in Portland and love getting my hands dirty with winter projects. My dad owned a bike when I was a teenager - I forget what it was, somewhere around a 250cc tracker that we used to ride around on a friends property. Ever since then, I thought it would be fun to own a bike. Finally convinced my wife that after I finished a couple larger projects around the house, I could get a bike as my winter project.

I don't know a ton about mechanics, but I love learning and getting into things is the best way for me. So far, I've loved working on my bike and seeing how things are affected when I modify/replace/clean certain parts.

Hoping to turn my bike into a nice little summer rider around town and out to wine country!

Thanks everyone! Really, my plan was to find something that needed plenty of work to get my hands into something to learn. I'd like to turn this one into a simple little bike with cleaner lines and simple look. Considering a tank design change, new seat for sure, clean up the wiring/cables, maybe a matte gray on the frame, brown leather seat, undetermined on tank color... my wife likes the rusty gold.
