Look what followed me home -- Hodaka Ace 90

The purpose of today's trip was to buy a '71 CB175 (see:

The seller also had this:

with a spare engine:

It is a 1968? Hodaka Ace 90 -- definitely rough, but for only $75 when you've already spent $46 in fuel to get there, again, how can you say "no"?
The handlebars are wrong, they need to be MX-style ones with the cross bar. Engine on it seems stuck, and seller was told by P.O. that it "skipped" in 2nd gear, and it needed bump started, because kicker was broken. Spare engine included, as well an engine gasket kit.
Inside of tank surprisingly clean.
