Nice deal!

I just finished up a 305 Scrambler...still working out a few bugs but I'm the coolest kid on the block! I paid $50 for a manual on eBay. Ditto on the 305 forum and check out Tim at classichondarestoration.com. He's a super guy!

carb covers are 2 aluminum pieces that attach to each other- gotta have both to work.
original tank badges are very difficult to come by at a reasonable price. i sold a few nos i had for $300+ 10 years ago.. i'm sure someone is repopping them by now at a reasonable price. back then they were nla everywhere. original pipes in good shape are expensive also..


as for the tank paint, i would do nothing to it. once you start painting there's no stopping on these things....

I've got both the carb covers - they're really neat too.

Missing the battery-side side cover though.

And fuck, apparently my ignition lock is super rare (code begins with NB) and hondakeys.com doesn't have anymore stock.
He referred me to another shop, which doesn't seem to respond to emails.


Looks like I've got to look for a new ignition switch.

I don't want it to look any different, just not get any worse.

Kev, I peed a little when I first hit that link. But it's cut for a NB933 and I have an NB396. So fuck I thought.

I happened to be referred to another guy who does have the right key!
Pre-cut for an NB396, never used. Damn $35, but it's worth it at this point I guess.
I'd be stupid not to order a couple of blanks from him if he's got them, so let's just say $50.

Phase 1 parts shipped today. I hope to try firing her up by next weekend.
Bulletproof - you coming over?

In the meantime, I've just been pulling shit apart and cleaning it while drinking very cheap beer.














Going to start rewiring on Saturday.

Not bad for 1950's technology. Thinking it over, quite advanced and before-it's time.

9 p.m. USPS on Saturday night? What kind of hail, sleet and snow did he have to deal with today?

Regardless, my dad had a white baby dream so I'm enjoying this thread. It was my first bike (as a two year old ).

And look at the size of the helmets compared to the bikes.

This is going to sound perverse, but I wonder what the biker chicks in that gang look like?
