1976 CB200T - new acquisition

What do you think? She's not perfect but she's really clean for a '76 and runs nice. The tank is as clean as anything I've ever seen. I'm still going over everything but so far I'm really happy with it. Fun to put around on when I'm not in the mood for the 919.

Anybody know where I could find some half decent shocks for it? If anybody other parts for it, please let me know. I'm looking to upgrade a number of items to bring it up a notch.

F-me-up-the-rear!

That's the first bike I ever owned - well not the real one as that was in New Zealand.

Cool wee bikes, loads of fun and sound cool with a pair of trumpet mufflers!

PS I really wanted the high pipe CL175 model too!

That is great. I love old Hondas. Cable actuated front disk brake and all. Good find!

Yup. It's got that too! At first, it had way too much play. Shop manual says it's self adjusting. Opened it up and all looked good - clean grease! I manually adjusted it, put it back together. Works pretty good now - even if it doesn't really self adjust. Not sure if it's a design flaw or just needed a little help to get started.

Fun little bike.
