Last week, Jason and I carried my CB175 down to the basement. This picture is very upsetting because it does not show how steep or slippery my basement steps are, or how heavy a 1973 CB 175 is. It does accurately portray the fact that Ben was not there...
I have been saying I am going to start tearing this thing down for a rebuild for months now, so I am excited to finally get to work on it. I know it is not a home renovation, but I think posting about anything we aren't qualified to do on here is applicable.
If you ever wonder how I manage to get so many work/tool related injuries, my workshop is a good indication.
Every bolt/mirror/nut/cable had not been touched for years. I got this thing from the second owner with 2,100 miles on it. He claims it had been stored "in his garage" since then, though the leaves and rust tell a different story. The clutch is shaped mysteriously too as it had "never been dropped." All of this creates some stubborn hardware.
