Been Around the Block
Some of you may have seen my posts in the engine section of the forum asking for help but I thought it might be kind of fun to make a build thread too. I don’t know how much I’ll actually update it, and I’m sure most won’t really care as this won’t be a special or high cost build, but it might be cool for me to look back at one day. The bike: it’s a 71 cl100, build date of 4/70, so it already celebrated its 50th this year, which is kinda cool to me. This is my first bike, and I bought it from a friend who got it for free and didn’t know how to work on it so i got it for a whopping $20! I cleaned the points, got a new coil and some new floats, cleaned the tank with a vinegar treatment, and it now runs good enough to drive. Probably gonna do a carb rebuild here soon too. Planning on this bike being just an off roader for now as I don’t have the money to register, insure, and buy all of the gear I need as I am going off to college soon. So since I have the off road gear, for the near future I’ll just have some good (although I imagine slow and uncompetitive) fun on the trails. Thanks for looking!
