Remember seeing this bike at my first race school race. 1989.

Nothing like a cherry old Honda that's been sitting for 20 years. I found a '70 CL350 with 1750 miles on the clock, original owner. The pipes were rotted away, so I got it for six hundred bucks. He didn't know I had a perfect set of pipes hanging in the rafters of my garage. It was like a jewel. Rebuilt the carbs, did a minor tune up and it still needed to be broken in! Ran perfect.

Nah MOE, I sold it after the big wreck along with everything else (boat, Baja bug, Dinghy, outboards, etc). In the thread you posed about pictures of your bikes you can see the "fleet" parked in my driveway. Now I just collect air rifles, coins and make booze. Danger use to be my business.

Mscuddy you know what we need to get you, a spyder and airhawk can disable the electronics, we NEED to get you back riding again, even if we have to use tons of Velcro, you down??

This is No Shyte - someone had the TV on in the Breakroom at work yesterday (college game was on) - and I saw for the first time an ad (other than on youbube) for one of those things.

Anyone with enough talent and enough knowledge with electronics should beable to disable all of the limiters. Airhawk you need to look into this look into the first year, standard model.

Thanks guys, still working on a Chang Jiang with a sidecar, some guy in Arizona wanted way too much money for his, but I sat on it, and could shift it (hand shifter on the throttle side, behind the seat).

So look out! Rat patrol all over again...it's camo too...love that flathead motor.

Maybe I'll try to invade Russia in November on one...
