Nice thread, heres my bike project I bought like this last Nov 2020, been mostly a winter project the past year. Its getting close because suprisingly an hour here and there really adds up over time! I will be installing the carbs pretty soon and getting it running! I had to apply for a title so I need to turn in my paperwork to the DMV on that. Everything painted with 2 stage auto paint or Powdercoated gloss or satin black, no rattle cans here.
'74 Honda CL125S. Bought a corroded hulk because it was the same model I had in high school. It needed everything. I disliked the weak 6V electrics, so I tore it apart again to convert it to 12 volts and LED lights all around. Once I'd gotten it right and ridden it enough to satisfy my sense of nostalgia, I sold it to clear space in the garage and fund other project bikes. Never did get around to repainting the header.
Geneva was purchased as a "rolling basket case" August 2020. As I had a brand new one back in '76, decided to change the paint to match what I had back then. If it ever dries up around here, hoping to give her a real shake-down run (more than the 8 miles she's done so far).
UPDATE: Did ~50 miles Thursday and she ran great! Plug inspection after she cooled down looked good, too.
