Woo Hoo!

Not really a project, but the latest addition to my garage (or, WILL be in a week when I pick it up).

1975 CB200, bought brand new by my older brother. He rode it for 2 or 3 years, then sold it to my mom when he bought a new CB360T. She's owned it ever since... She pretty much just rode it around town, although once took it on a family ride from Miami down to Key West about 15 years ago.

Over the last 4 or 5 years, she's pretty much stopped riding it (she'll be 76 this year), but since I'm currently "between street bikes", she offered it to me!

Can't wait to do a little tooling around the neighborhood on it!

Nope. Still plugging away on the Hodaka. Getting close to having 'er back on the road.




Now with the 200, I'll be even MORE distracted... :D

Yeah, kinda neat that it's still in the family. Of course, I've ridden it off and on over the years, but it's never lived in MY garage... :)

Dunno what bike that is in the background of the first pic. Not sure where that one was even taken. They sent it to me once a while ago. Looks like a Harley V-rod? The 200 doesn't look quite that nice anymore. It's been sitting idle in the garage for quite a few years now. Mostly just dirty.

Second picture is my older brother (not the one who first bought the bike :) ), his then-6-yr-old son, my younger sister, and my mom on a family ride we all took from Miami down to Key West about 15 years ago. He's sitting on a Honda CX500. Not seen in the pic from that trip are my Dad on his Harley FXRS and my wife and I on a borrowed Gold Wing. Nice trip.
