    Sadly it's time to sell my long term project CL 175. Very well constructed street or race bike ready to be daily driven anywhere any time. Electric start! Runs perfectly. Not a perfect show bike but presents well and is completely unique. Surprisingly fast and smooth riding. Perfect for around town fun or short freeway hops.

    Partial list of upgrades:

    Engine completely rebuilt by Les Barker of Vintage Advantage.
    Brand new pistons/rings
    Full valve job with all new parts
    HD timing chain
    Adjustable timing sprocket
    Screw secured engine seals
    New clutch
    All other engine internals are either new or rebuilt
    Electric starter rebuilt
    Keihin PE 24 carbs jetted perfectly
    Pertronix ignition module
    Dyna coils
    Full fiberglass cafe body with amazing period paint-job.
    Tank is sealed and safe for pump gas
    Powder coated frame
    Rebuilt forks with new seals
    New rear shocks
    New tires
    New aluminum rims
    New chain/sprockets
    New cables
    Custom rear-sets and controls
    Clip on handle bars
    Custom bare bones wiring harness
    LED headlight
    Solid state rectifier

    There's much more that I can't think of right now. No way one could duplicate this bike for what I am asking. Come check it out and see what I mean. Clean title currently registered in my name. Email me at [email protected]

    Digging the trippy paint, man

    I don't know though - you re-laced the wheels with new rims but kept the rusty spokes??

    yea, some new spokes and $2500 and you'd have a better shot at a buyer

    Is it me, or is the front fender "zip tied" on?

    I believe you are correct sir, good eye.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    Thanks for looking everyone. Yes the fender is zip tied on. Those motorsport ties are much stronger than needed to do that job but if it bothers a buyer I'll get a couple hose clamps. As for the spokes, they weren't rusty when I started but I made the error of wire brushing the zinc coating off them so now surface rust has showed up.

    As for the price I don't know what to say. The motor rebuild alone would be close to $2k done at this level and the tank and seat are over $600 before paint. Then there's all the other stuff like clip ons, rear sets, aluminum rims, new tires, chain sprockets and blah blah.....

    I am open to offers though. Come out and see it run and let's talk.

    "Motorsport Ties"? Everyone knows the green ones are the strongest.

    Come on. Do you know where you are?

    They're actually mil-spec whatever that really means. 120lb tensile strength (x4 ties) will hold that 5 OZ 'glass fender on there just fine. Just because something is easy doesn't always mean it's bad.

    Panduit - BT6LH-C0 - WEATHERRESISTANT; 21.2IN NYLON 6.6 DOME-TOP CABLE TIE - Allied Electronics

    What's important on this bike is what works well. Really runs flawlessly and will do so for a long time to come.

    It doesn't matter how much you spent on fixing up an obsolete motorcycle, it still has to compete against the price of a current model or brand new bike that comes with a manufacturers warranty
    And all those goodies that you put on it should have been put on there for yourself, not to resell it.

    I see that I've made a faux pas by posting a sale ad as a first post. Sorry about that. Now. Let's clear some stuff up. While I'm new to this forum, I'm a seasoned motorsports enthusiast who's built, raced, and ridden pretty much everything with wheels for over 25 years. While there might be a few items on this bike that aren't quite perfect or finished it's hardly the aborted POS you guys like to flame. I didn't build it to sell and have really enjoyed riding it but I'm on to another project (Ducati 851) that needs my time and money so this is happening.

    As I stated before, if you want to come see the bike please get in touch.
