Hello all
Just a brief intro, im 55 years young and i work as a fibreglass laminor for AKFS , I have owned bikes all my life ( well since being 16) mainly small 2strokes untill about 5 years ago when i passed my test..Since then ive had a mt07 mt09 tracer and most recntly a ktm 690 duke .
Yesterday however my sister took me to pick up my latest project a 1977 cd175 .
The bike has been sat in our uncles house since 1981 in the back room its only done 1743 miles from new sadly he passed away in december and my sister being his executor basically gave me this beauty,so thats how it has come into my life ,am going to go through it slowly needs tlc now and a battery lol..
Looking forward to chatting with you all in the ensuing months and there will be plenty of pics once i figure out how to .. everyone stay safe

Hi Dave
Welcome to the forum, that looks like a great project and with such a low mileage and having been kept indoors maybe not too much work?? I am based in the UK (Wales) also. Kim
