    Had this bench from a shop fit out. Only had 2 legs so I cut them in half and made a nice little work bench. Might decide to put some ply or MDF on top to make it a little stronger.

    Also cleaned out a huge amount of grass and mud from the counter shaft sprocket. Goes heaps better now.

    Taught the gf how to ride this today and had to pry it from her afterwards. 50cc is where it's at.

        I put some indicators on which are genuine Honda but I'm going to slowly search for some aged ones.

          Keep the pics coming, love unrestored bikes, finish it off and send it over here where its GE cuz is waiting...

          I have been tempted to straighten things up like the rear bracket, fender, headlight, pump up tires etc.. but they add so much more character bent, flat and all..., i find i stare at it way longer and enjoy it more than my straight clean bikes...

          Btw, i may have a light fitting or 2 from my 'bad intention' hardtail but have to check...

            With you 110% here Babu, nothing like an unrestored survivor bike with all the character intact. I reckon more challenging than a complete restore to get part that look the right age (like the indicators you mentioned Matty).

            It's gotta run and everything has to work though - no pressure

                  Making a start on fixing the wiring. I thought it was going to be messed up but actually it's not too bad. Will need a new plug for the battery. Also it has the original tool kit under the seat. This bike keeps getting better.
