Old Honda Guy From Daphne!

Post by Guest on Thu Jul 22, 2010 4:28 pm


Nice effort on the site!

Had dirt bikes forever but started with a Honda 1965 S65 and never forgot it! Last few years, I have been picking up non running road bikes (with titles) and trying to bring them back to life and thanks to alot of help on the web and a long time friend named Hagan, it's been fun.

My only problem, I find it real hard to turn loose of one em. Current stable - Honda 1985 VT500, Honda 1986 VT500 (my twins), 1980 GL1100 - Yellow Mama (on the road again), 1983 GL1100 - running but under reconstruction - due out by Christmas. 1980 GL1100 - waiting in the wings but sound. 1968 CT90 K0, always wanted one back when so now I have one - in line for restore but who knows when, Honda 1986 XL100 (running), 1993 Yamaha PW80 (running - was my son's - he's now 28), 1985 Yamaha IT200N - running - just not used much. And don't ask why - but a 1977 Bianchi Motorelli Moped - in a box but recenly got the motor unfrozen and it is slowly making a return.

Keep on riding, but be safe!

Yeah - it's a garage that most wives would kill you for, or at least divorce you for - and mine has threatened. Bikes are located in several locations but I'll get some pitures posted. Nice bike Phantom and BTW - none of mine look that good!

Thanks - I've got a soft spot for old bikes that are on the way to the junk yard!
