1972 cb/cl 100
« on: Nov 03, 2014, 15:02:10 »
Hey all,
I picked up an almost complete cb100 in September, and have not had a lot of time to work on it. It's a cb frame, and a cl motor. Guy I bought it off did a lot of work but  decided to pursue different interests. It had two year old gas and a dead battery, so I cleaned the tank and carb, bought a new 6volt gel battery, and ordered a regulator/rectifier from sonreir. I've never owned a 100, and am wondering if anyone knows what the nipple is for in the pic. Thanks.

That's the crankcase vent. Just attach a hose and route it along the frame to the ground.
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

Ok, cool. I thought it was a vent but wanted to verify.

I had some time to work on the bike today. I put a small inline fuel filter on. The guy before me had a long looping run to the carb with a pretty big filter and I wanted to try to make the run as short and direct as possible. I also pulled the front tire, patched the tube, struggled to put it back on with my 6inch bicycle levers, and now have a new leak. I must have pinched the tube. I will be ordering proper tire levers tonight. It was my first time pulling and reinstalling a motorcycle tire.

Cool, I've got a little 72 cb100 too.

I need to get off my lazy butt and start working on mine too.

Hope to see more progress and pictures.

Don't feel bad, I pinched a brand new tube the other day. One tip is to use windex to help ease installation

A service guy at a local shop today told me to try baby powder on the tube. I also read to use soapy water on the bead, I've never tried windex.  I bought new proper spoons/ tire levers, so I'll try again tomorrow. I also ordered two new tubes to have on standby.

Baby powder will prevent binding in the tube. It's a must for our old spoke wheels.

Put the tube in with just the slightest pressure. Enough so it will retain a donut shape but not so much that it won't squeeze in. Once the stem is set and the tire is fully mounted, put a little more air in and bounce the tire on the ground a few times so any kinks snap out.

I used levers to get it off and then just soaped it up and pushed it on by hand.

Windex, it dries much quicker than soap though and but it makes clean up easier. Use talc baby power and not the cornstarch kind.

Finally had a few minutes to work on this. I put a brand new tube in and it held air, so I put it back on the bike.

Made some progress. Got it to start last week. And installed one bar end mirror. I have to drill a hole in the end of the throttle to get the other mirror on. I'm looking into building my own seat and securing the battery, rectifier, and winker in better. I'm also going to lower the headlight and clip ons, and look into relocating where he put the ignition switch, and possibly lowering the speedometer.

Looking good. What tires are those?

Cheng shin 3.00-17 4 ply on the back, iRC 2.50-18 40l on the front. They came on the bike when I bought it.
