Heh. Yes, that's right <snickers into fist>

Seriously tho, looks to be mebbe a Rebel? Possibly a 450? Don't ask me what year.

It's crusty, that's for sure. Can you kick the engine over?

Honda CM200T Twinstar.

You can get the year by decoding the 10th digit of the VIN, but I know these were sold in the 1980-1982 time frame.

You're welcome.

Yikes!

That there is a Project!

All I can say is, 'Best of Luck!'

I wish I had that kind of time...

"hello. i recently purchased this honda bike for 25 dolars..."

I think you got taken. The seller should have given YOU 25 bucks to haul that junk away!

Wow. That thing looks like a worse pile of madura than that Magna I foolishly bought a few years back.

One you spend 3 grand fixing it, she should be worth at least $35!

Look at the brochure. The finished bike will be worth it.

I remember that bike. We told the guy to submerse it in salt water for 36 hours to clear up the electrical problem he was having. Looks like he did.

Looks like a big page of chinese writing to me. Anyway I agree with Longride, you got chumped, best thing to do is see if there's any gas left in the tank and drop a match in there. Maybe you could invite some friends over and have a weinie roast or something
