Member Info: I have rebuilt two Honda Motorcycles. the first was a 1980 CB750, the second which i have spent more time on is my 175, which is at present almost complete. just waiting on some smaller components before getting it going. the bike is 1971 and was in a right state when first started. it has been stripped to bare metal and rebuilt to it,s origonal glory...The Indian is actually a 1939 indian 741, a military bike in its hay day. now been fully restored by my father in law and was the main reason for me, taking an interest in restoring old bikes...i am now starting the next project which is a Bantam D3. I am looking for an Indian Arrow as my next venture if anyone knows where i can get an old Knackered one please let me know... The CD175 is now complete and am glad to report it is great. It starts first kick and rides beautifully, all that work has ended up worthwhile...
