I revived this old Honda just for fun, sort of. Cleaned it up and even tried my hand at the paint work, which came out pretty well, I thought! A fun bike to ride, it just needs a little more TLC before I post it for sale….
This is the first electric start Commando I have had in the shop. Upgraded 3 phase charging system, carb clean and adjust along with some service work and the obligatory wiring issues that seem to pop up out of thin air on old British steeds. I “had” to ride it for more than twenty minutes to verify the repair, twenty eight miles later she still purred at idle and would set me back in the seat when I poured the coals on!!! Delightful, to say the least!!
I promised more pics and I figured I have procrastinated long enough….
The bike was an absolute joy to ride, quite strong and refined although still a bit rough around the edges like a psuedo race bike should be. I feel very honored to have the opportunity to keep such a beautiful classic rockin down the road!!
