Can anyone recommend a good shop in my area that works on vintage Hondas? I need to get a full tune up. I know about loudfastugly.com but Im dont think his shop is up yet.

Gave them a call and they said they dont do that anymore. Thanks anyways.

Man is this frustrating. I just bought a bike and I need to have the clutch cable replaced and a tune up done before I can ride it and I cant find a place that will do the work.

Well I have a large backyard so I could just do it all there but the thing is, I have no experience with these bikes. I dont want to screw anything up unless of course its easy to change the oil, check the point, rebuild the carbs and replace a clutch cable. I would happily do it myself if I knew I could.

invest in a factory service manual, it will be your most valued tool....as far as the work you need done those jobs are fairly straight foward and carb work if fun....at least i like it....

Where can I get a service manual? Is it the same as the Clymer motorcycle repair manuals?

Clymer will not have a lot of specific information for your specific bike. It is a general manual that covers a lot of bikes from Honda from a particular era.

Scott knows of what he speaks.

Order your factory service manual here:
http://www.helminc.com/helm/homepage.asp

Chose the "aftermarket" section. These guys are the OEM printer for Honda motorcycles. If it's still in print...they have it. I've ordered several service manuals from them for bikes from the 60's.
Top quality stuff.

Thanks but it doesnt seem like they print them anymore. Could I just go to my local dealer and order one?
