Careful With That Axe Eugene
kickstands for early Hondas were rare because there's no frame under the motor to attach them. Honda solved that on some bikes by welding the stand pivot to the footpeg bar that mounts across the bottom of the motor. With rearsets, that bar is not there so I fabricated a cross beam that mounts to both sides of the motor to spread the load.

Back in the day someone offered a stand that bolted to the frame where the footpeg plates bolt on but there were pretty flimsy and tended to fail IIRC. Funny that modern bikes all come with side stands but can't fit center stands because of full fairings etc getting in the way.View attachment 233687View attachment 233688

Thanks guys. Much appreciated. The bike was gifted to me for assisting the PO who lost interest/time and I understand why. The motor wasn't bad, but I had it bored oversize and had teh valves and head machined and rebuilt it, but the chassis wasn't as good as it looked unfortunately. Good news was that we had a pair of spare wheels to replace the bent rims and broken cable abutments, so a few gazillion dollars later the wheels looked good as gold.
Now I need to register it and get some miles on it to shake down any issues that might be hiding in there.

My first motorcycle, found a cheap 1980 cb125s that had been sitting outside for a few years. Had some rusted tank with heater hose running to the petcock threads, completely clogged carb and hadn't been on the road since 2001.

Welcome. Not a bad first bike.
Looks like you have had to do a fair bit to get it cleaned up.
