    I'm no expert mechanic, and I'm using this and my CB/SL350 bike to tear apart and rebuild as a learning tool more so.

    So, mostly as said above a nostalgic toy, to run around the hood, and maybe back and forth to work at times.
    Is that a CL125 tank? I'm curious how it fits on a CB100 frame. Do the mounting points line up?

    No inspections and the insurance on my FZ1 is $120 a year. Oddly enough the KZ750 costs $5 more for some reason.

    The tank fits fine, just a booger to get the rubber over the tab on the rear.

    However, was soaking the tank with the vinegar treatment, and started to notice pin holes on the bottom.

    Metal is paper thin there, gotta figure out how to quick fix it. I really like this tank.

    Flexible fuel cell bladder would work, basically a big plastic bag that you stuff inside the old rusty tank and that has a cap and everything.
    Never seen one for motorcycles :| [email protected]$%^ there I just gave away another billion $ idea.

    Well, got the engine top end done, back together, and in the bike.

    Put the kicker pedal on, then it stripped. Couldn't kick it any more.

    So coming back out and tear down again.

    Kick levers on the small displacement bikes are not very well made, I used to go to swap meets and buy up kick levers from larger displacement street bikes and then make them fit. Had good luck with kick levers off of 4 cylinder bikes, they were longer, stronger and way better designed, was just a matter of finding one that held the spline shaft well enough and cleared the foot pegs on the down stroke.

    If you have to replace it anyways... What if you try drilling it for a through-bolt first?

    The idea would be to just put a bolt through the kick lever and the splines. That should work as a near permanent solution until you have another reason to pull the motor

    Make it a very small hole if you go that route.
