    Odometer Dead

    Same happened to my 2005 a couple years back. I replaced with stock OEM. If I recall the cost wasn't all that bad and it was a simple process.....

    Bought British Again-Now Can I Hang Out With the Cool Guys

    I have made a few little modifications that tend to make it slightly louder and suited to my personal tastes. It is sacrilege to have a high pipe bike that doesn't have fat knobbys, make noise, and throw in a pedestrian slicer added for good measure.....

    Bought British Again-Now Can I Hang Out With the Cool Guys

    I picked up my 72 nd birthday present to myself this afternoon. It is a 1967 Triumph T100C appears to be in very decent shape. All the right mod's to include electronic ignition, belt driven primary, and recent 40 over top end rebuild. For some unknown reason, very well could be senility, I...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Done deal done, just about. I finished bolting everything back on this afternoon. Dumped some corn free in the tank, turned the petcock on to no leaks. Pulled the choke and hit the starter, fired right away. Took a short trip around the block trying to outrun an approaching thunder storm and...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Front is done and we have clocks, cables, and the bucket. I am sure that guy we have all heard of who gets 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag is who installs the headlight wiring loom at the factory. Now on to the rear end.....

    Carcinoma Don't you just love getting old...

    Having spent a lot of almost 72 years in the sun, it is time for payback. A few years back I lost the tip of my ear and yesterday I had a good size chunk of meat removed from middle back for the same type of skin cancer. I fully comprehend it could be a hell of a lot worst when the big "C" is...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Well she is on the ground again with a new from end. The rebuilt master cylinder and brake caliber work perfectly with kits installed and I always find that to be fifty on a good day as to whether or not you get a good seal. Clocks and bucket go back on next after checking that birds nest one...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Wet sanded and cut and buffed the side covers today. With my unintentional defects they look pretty close to a factory match considering the tank color has had a few more years to fade. Polished the forks, touched up the rotor, tomorrow a tire mount. I have done about five in a row now...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Started on the front. I think 45 year old fork oil ranks right up there with the top ten things that smell bad on any given day. Going to install the rebuilt brake system, new tire, fork seals, and clean the hell out of everything. Shot the side covers today with rattle can from supplier who...

    Motor detailing time. Still need to hit the aluminum bits a little more with the Mothers, but somewhat of an improvement from the first day brought home.....

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    Well it runs and runs well. After setting valve lash, timing, points, new plugs and cleaning the carbs I ran a temporary fuel line and hit the starter. Fired over immediately, oil pressure light went out, no smoke, and the motor sounded real tight and idled well with just a bench synch on the...

    Period Cruiser-Yes Another 750 Honda

    A little over a week ago I drove from Eastern Virginia to Columbia SC and back to bring another CB750 home. Since I ended up keeping a K74 I finished recently I recently finished I needed one to bring back and try and re-coup some money to the motorcycle account. (I am convinced of two things...

    I should be shunned by the entire Rocket community....

    Upon checking the maintience records for my small herd I found the oil had last been changed in the R3 on February 2, 2020. I did and oil change and brake system flush, front and rear yesterday. Since the last change I had put a total of 374 miles on the bike. I am going to do some thinking...

    Lipstick for another Pig.....

    Finished up today, still need a little tweak here and there, but the 750 Smurf runs **** good. I am still waiting for the transferred title from DMV so I am going to have to put some thought into selling or keeping this one. A little more seat time should do the trick.....

    Lipstick for another Pig.....

    Well it is back on the ground and at roller status again. Carbs, pipes, a little of this and that, and hopefully a trip around the block in the near future.....

    Lipstick for another Pig.....

    The bearing puller worked great, took quite a few slides with the hammer but it broke loose with no damage. I am still waiting on parts to finish up the rear wheel so on to the dirty part of the job. The swing arm, sprocket, under the rear fender, rear of the motor, and center stand area...

    Lipstick for another Pig.....

    Front end is on the ground, on to the rear where a big bag of fecal matter hit the fan with rear wheel bearings. I have always despised wheel bearing installation regardless of the vehicle. A vintage Honda is a real treat because it has peened retainer rings and a axle sleeve that rides...

    I killed my flip phone..

    I washed my beloved flip phone in my jeans and killed it. I now have a new smart phone. This is a picture of my cat Marvin, I took it with my new smart phone. Marvin currently knows more about how to work this tool of Satan than I do. Old people really shouldn't be given technology and left...
