    The CL350 Scrambler catches my eye every time.. there’s something about it.. I wish I could own several bikes.. i’d be a collector in a heart beat.

    The yard project was from a salvage, no title came with it, so had to keep it off-public roads.
    Sawed off an tail-end of another CL and used it as the sidecar wheel:

    My welding hand isn’t very steady…

    Just enough room to carry a large gabage can:

    I rode that ’73 CL350 scrambler to the ground.

    One evening, 12 mi. from home, climbing up an overpass; the head gasket blew on me.

    Oil started pouring out and engine finally seized about 6 mi. from home.

    Sold that bike for parts, got enough cash to get a Ninja 250.

    I picked up a leftover special from local scooter shop today.

    A 2011 model BMS 110cc Chinese SuperCub clone:

    Rode it for about 12 mi. and took it all apart to change oil, check valves, took off misc. items that are just dead weight like the steering lock, helmet hooks, metal rak in the step-thru, re-toorque every nut and bolt..

    Still not used to the clutch-less 4-speed GP style shifting…

    The tires will get changed out soon, if I keep missing shifts that make the rear wheel skid like crazy.

    The leading link fork need some getting used to also, instead of fork dive when you come to a stop,
    the front end actually rises upward….

    Finally, after nearly 3 months of restoration, I got the 1978 GoldWing running..

    not the easiest bike to work on but at least it doesn’t require computer diagnostics to figure out its problems.. points and condensors converted to modern electronic ignition, thanks to DYNA.

    New tires, brake pads/lines, new front master brake cylinder, brake performance still is to be desired..

    Repainted side bags, body panels and tank covers, almost look like a decent bike:

    Almost look like a modern “bagger”:

    Last week I sold the Honda GL1000, local broker picked it up last week and getting it shipped to Norway.

    Yesterday I picked up an early birthday present for under $1k.

    83 GL650 Interstate, +13k mi., runs decent, cosmetically 60-70%, PO took a nice tumble that had some nice scratches on the sidecases and topbox, dent on exhaust headers and the swingarm; but rides nice, tracks straight, no wiggle at 70+ mph when I let go of the handlebars.
    Tires, forkseals, brakes all in decent shape, there may be a cafe/bobber in my near future.

    Latest project that got completed.. 1977 Honda CT90.. ditched the old engine for a Chinese 140cc pitbike engine, extended swingarm, still trying to optimize location for oil-cooler.
