1974 Honda XL 175

Found this on Craigslist this morning....

1974 XL 175 honda original paint orange and black - $1700

1974 XL 175 with 1500 original miles, original paint. The bike is orange with the big black stripe down the tank. This bike is in great shape, everything works good. This bike will take you back in time. clear title, and have owners manual.

I like it a lot, but I'd have 50 bikes if I bought everything I see on Craigslist that I like a lot!

That is a sweet looking ride. I have to limit the amount of time I spend looking at bikes on craigs list!


Live to ride, but ride to ride another day!

I'd like to find an old classic to work on in my spare time.

Wow! That's my first bike!

Not that one exactly, mine was blue.

I'd love to get another one. It may have given my right leg a workout and been kinda pokey, but I still loved it.

In 1974 when I had my 1973 SL100 I lusted after that XL175. I still have the Cycle World 175 shootout article from that year where they crowned the XL175 the winner. Surprisingly,it outpowered its two stroke competition. The criticism was the lack of ground clearance when off-roading. Still a fine looking motorcycle.
