I'm selling my '74 Honda CB200 after a few years of ownership. It's been a fun ride, but it's time to move up in size. It's a great bike to begin on, putt around town in, and even commute to work if it's a short ride. It's definitely a head turner and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. I purchased it with about 10k miles on it and have only put on about 3.5k since. I cleaned out the carbs and replaced the bowl gaskets, and the previous owner had the valves adjusted at time of purchase.
A few updates/modifications I've done, mostly aesthetics and purchased from Dime City Cycles.

She does need to have the idle screws increased at cold starts to get her running, but once she's warmed up, you can readjust down to nominal idle speed. It will take a few starts from the electric starter to get her up but she'll fire up with no problem. I'm assuming larger jets will take care of the problem considering it has shorty mufflers on it.
The Avon RoadRider AM26 tread life is good, and lots left; no flat spot. I've been riding on them commuting to work and they have no problem holding air and have been through cold and hot temps.
Oil changes have been every 1k with Lucas Semi-Synthetic 10W-40. There is a slight drip at the bottom end, but very minimal loss.
Asking $3000obo picked up in the Torrance area. Clean title in hand and registration paid until next year. PM me for more information.
