Hello everyone, made the mistake of jumping the gun and posting before I introduced myself; my bad. I'm in Chicago, IL. I just got a pretty sweet '73 CB175 K7. I've rebuilt a '75 Passport with my dad way back when, so I'm pretty new to servicing and repairing CBs. Have read a bunch of discussions on Honda Twins and they've been super helpful. Looking forward to learning more with you all.

Welcome to the group. If you haven't already seen it, this may be helpful as you put your bike on the road:


What are your plans for the bike?

Welcome Juan, thanks for the introduction with picture. It must be 175 week, 3 in the last day and a half. Your bike looks quite original though it seems to have suffered some outdoor storage exposure. Are you any relation to the journeyman MLB player of the same name? :)

Hello! I plan on restoring aesthetics a bit, and also just looking to learn how to deal with 175 problems as they go.

Hello! Yeah, the bike is in pretty good, original shape. There is a small amount of rust and a few dents on the tank, but other than that it looks great. I got excited the week I got it and rode home with the choke open on a sunny day and soiled a spark plug. Trying to get it back into riding shape. I am not related to Juan Uribe, but I respect his game.
