Take a look at a mid- to late-'70s TR7. Super easy to work on. Parts are plentiful. And it will only appreciate over time. Much more than the Honda.

Will do, thanks.

Open to other suggestions in the cb350 category as well though, those just see the most popular to get into with.

 

Bonnies are nice but if you're more of a cruiser guy, I'd recommend throwing a leg up on a Speedmaster before you make your mind up. The ride is a little more laid back than a Bonnie and if you customize them just a bit, you can get some real mean sound and speed out of them... for a mid-weight bike anyways.

 

Just woke my '03 Speedy up from hibernation today (don't mind the crappy iPhone video):

It's not a choke.  It's a fast idle circuit.

Knew I'd get shit for that.

A choke richens the mixture.  A fast idle simple raises the idle.

Did a little modding today. I want a CF front fender next, I think. Or smaller turn indicators. And solid footpegs. devil.gif

Who listens to tunes when riding?  What type of earphones do you use,  if any?  The  in-ear Klipsch S2s are excellent.  You can hear the full range of your music plus they block out  all of that annoying rushing air.  I think they were 55 beans when I bought them from Best Buy but you can probably find them for cheaper now that they are discontinued.

I haven't been able to find headphones that are easy to put on and have a good seal. I am thinking about getting (or making) a custom pair.

^^^ love those things, though they are holding their value irritatingly well.

It's 50 degrees today in NY.  First springtime lunch ride of the year.

post #2773 of 4722
Haha yeah I had my first ride of the year in Boston. Good to be back on the iron horse.

Last year this time, it was 20 degrees and I out and about riding my scooter for the first time.

This year, it's -6 and snowing still. UGH.

Scheduled my scooter's spring servicing for tomorrow though. How about everyone else? Are you guys getting the covers, etc off of your bikes?

Well...it was 15 degrees out this morning. So I think I've got some time.

It's stored in front of my friend's parking spot right now, so one of the next times I am at his place, I plan to go down to their garage and grab the battery to take home and charge.

Hopefully it starts up and runs just fine when the time comes. I don't want to have to try and work on it in his parking structure...would rather get it the 5-6 miles home before giving it fresh fluids and looking into it.
