hi guys ,paintwork done by myself as i was a body shop painter 20+ years ago and did an apprenticeship at the time (£25) per week after leaveing school, restoration aint cheap on these old bikes because of demand for old nos parts, chromeing is another thing thats not cheap but i,m trying to do it without throwing massess of money at it but still want the end result to be worth it. Thumbs Up

hi quaz,these old hondas have the brake pedal and centre stand run through the frame on the same pin Wall , its the 3rd cd175 i have done and everyone is ceased solid so your only option is to chop the lower frame which i,m not gonna do for obvious reasons so the choices are to leave it in situ, its not ideal but i dont want to go butchering a good frame . Thumbs Up

lets hope everything has gone back together as it should,the only thingi could find wrong was a little wear on the camshaft which has now been changed al;ong with the camchain.

Very nice bud, that carb would benefit from being ultrasonically cleaned, they come up like new. Thumbs Up



The frame looks solid for its age, they have learned the odd lesson over the years haven't they. Laugh

thanks chaps,nearly caught up to were i am now so its gonna slow down for now besides that i still need a right hand side panel and 2 new silencers, looking round though and nos silencers are few and far between so unfortunatly they may have to be david silver after market jobbies, also debateing about a wheel rebuild kit for the rear wheel but have never done one before so may be a steep learning curve.

I guess you don't think much of the phrase 'variety is the spice of life' Laugh

What sort of money are you picking these things up for as if cheap maybe I should have a go at an older more neglected but simpler bike next time as it might keep me occupied longer than a few weeks ?

hi mate, i paid £190 for this one but considerably more for the other, factor in though that silencers are always rotten and side panels are nearly always broken, mudguards are metal so typically rot, but haveing said all that engines are brilliant and simple, these engines are as reliable as anything today and could easily be used as a everyday hack, i did an old suzuki 2 stroke last year(gt380 and to be honest while i got really good money for it(took it to rivington barn on a sunday and sold it there and then) i never really bonded with it.
