Having just stupidly gone through this same scenario with a nearly identical CL125S [See Project Thread Here], I concur with scramblermike and TrialsRider. These little Honda singles were built cheaply, a long time ago, and designed to perform just adequately for the roadways of an earlier, slower, less congested era. Beyond costing more than it's worth, the motorcycle you will end up will be fairly unsatisfying as anything more than a nostalgic toy.Is going to cost you way more money to rebuild that bike then it's going to be worth. Besides the motor and frame pretty much every other part needs to be replaced, repaired or restored
Is that a CL125 tank? I'm curious how it fits on a CB100 frame. Do the mounting points line up?Agreed...........................but fun to learn on.
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.
No inspections and the insurance on my FZ1 is $120 a year. Oddly enough the KZ750 costs $5 more for some reason.You guys are lucky to have such low insurance rates and lax road certification laws you can entertain fixing up an old bone like that to put on the road. Doesn't happen up here any more, is just too impractical.
The tank fits fine, just a booger to get the rubber over the tab on the rear.Is that a CL125 tank? I'm curious how it fits on a CB100 frame. Do the mounting points line up?
Make it a very small hole if you go that route.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
