1965 Honda C100 Cub (Watch me strip!!! XXX S*X!!!)
« on: Jun 24, 2012, 15:06:45 »
What can I say... I have wanted one of these for years, and it is so dang pretty that even my mother, angry as she is, had to crack a smile at it when I rolled it out of my dads truck. It's been garaged for the past 20 years, and at first I was planning on restoring it and selling it on, but I don't think I'll be able to. 5000 miles, original everything. The motor turns over and should run fabulously, there is very little surface rust.

It needs a new seat, sidecovers, and exhaust pipe, but that is about it. also, the paint is brushed on and junk, but it should come off easily. The springs need replacing, but what old hondas dont? Oh... and the price? 325 dollars. I've been so happy that i've been jumping around the house screaming YEAHHHH!!! ... hopefully my neighbors didn't catch me in my backyard whispering "it's okay, I'll take care of you from now on you poor soul" while stroking the seat softly.

Houston, we have ignition! Stunning how good of a condition this bike is in underneath all the grime. So I got excited, and moved on to step 2... fuel...

Houston, we have a problem...

Poured in some fuel in my excitement, and it quickly poured out all over the floor. Woops, forgot to check the fuel line. As I should have expected, it crumbled to pieces in my hands as i tried to block off the flow. You guys should see the carb on this bike... it's so cute, not much bigger than a large highlighter... hehe. After cleaning all the fuel off the floor it was time for some dinner, so I covered it up and left it aside for now.

Soon after, a magical thing happened. My mother came out and started trying to remove the paint form the plastic after doing some research herself on what is best. To say the least, it was pretty awesome. Seems the bike is antique enough for my mom to take an interest... mwahaha :)

Probably a 10 or 12mm downdraft on it?

Awesome score.  I recently had to get rid of my '80 Cub (C70) for financial reasons and I've regretted it ever since. They are a blast to ride and if you can find an optional basket they can fit a six pack perfectly!

anyone know why the speedo will be reading 20+mph at a walking pace? It definitely needs to have the cable regreased and checked, but I still can't understand how that would make the speedo read so high.

Or maybe I just walk WAY faster then I ever realized. Olympics, here I come.

The magnet and alloy cup inside speedo are either distorted or corroded.
 The return spring may also be broken?
Only way to find out is dismantle it
