anyway, its in the pipeline lol....
am undecided what I'm going to do with it yet. I've started stripping it but may end up repainting it once I get the 1986 goop off it. I have too many black guitars, so time for a change probably

This old thing got some shed time during my summer holiday. Went in for new tyres, had really manky looking rims & spokes. I scrubbed it all, freed up frozen spokes and got em adjusted up. A blast of silver paint - note to self; check spray gun fan effect. It dripped & ran, you know how it goes with those quick jobs. Wheels looked so good that the mudguards looked terrible, off they came, another scrubbing & donging out the dents. Slightly better blast of silver. New brake shoes up front, lubed the cables etc...
Turned on the gas for a start up after sitting 6 months, petrol pissed out of a dried up shrunken carburetor O ring. Go to shop order viton O rings, get wrong O rings. Rant about the future of the continuity of human species. Dig deep into the buried honda 90 shed resources and find a forgotten good carburetor. Strip clean, install... good carb we have a winner.
It's from 1974, came out of a roadside dump about 17 years ago. My kids have all learned to ride on this one. I use it for estate tours and checking the mailbox. There was this time where it had to outrun a very mad bull, glad it could.
First gear...hold on tight, second gear....

Goodness, back in Holland I had the 50cc road version of this. Changed the cylinder size to 70cc (which was illegal) and had the fastest 'moped' in town.

I remember riding from Holland to Luxemburg with the 50cc version on about one tank (5L petrol for just under 300Km's).

Love these old Hondas

Cheap ass Squier classic vibe 50s tele, Cb tuned, new 6 way bridge, decent capacitor, humbucker in neck position, its actually not a bad piece of kit for the money and is my hack. Looking for a Strat neck with rosewood board then im happy.
