well, I picked up a b arn find literally today. a couple weeks back I was getitng some barnboards to use for a future project, and there was an old motorcycle laying in the barn. this weekend, I saw the barn owner, and I got the bike for free. :banana:

it's missing the seat, the gas tank, and the side covers. will need most of the lighting replaced and the gauges, but it should be a fun project.
the exhaust is really good shape. no idea how long it had been laying in the barn...

it's a 1972 Honda CL175

Hopefully it'll look like this when I'm done....

Nice find ! Those little bikes are great.

So yours has those same scrambler pipes?

"Clubman" bars would do it nice without the pain of clip-ons.

yeah, the CL was the scrambler model with the higher exhaust pipes for better "off-road" capability.

since mines been laying in a barn, the pipes still look awesome. no rust!

Nice score, one of my fav series of Hondas.
Friend of mine when I was a kid stripped a 250 Scrambler for dirt.
That thing was a beast.

My first street bike was a CL350.
Couldn't kill it with a grenade.

the last year for the CL175 was '73, and I've been having a hard tine finding any interchange info... looks like the 72-73 were the same... maybe 71...

I've picked up a couple of things so far, but haven't done anything yet as I've been working on Grizzly and my '72 K20...

picked up a complete wiring harness for the bike and a set of side covers primed and ready for custom paint....

it's at least in my garage staying dry...
