No Peter, you have personally offended me.

but I thought aside from relating that I'm more psyched to get this lump o'metal moving, maybe my tale might motivate some of you guys to also finish up your steeds. Perhaps we could have a group ride of cbs at some point like we had a few years back?

Sorry Ben, all my projects are completed, and running perfectly as though they just came out of a factory that builds things perfectly. But thanks for the attempts at motivation, and all.

Oh Damn. I think there was just an explosion sound in the driveway. I have somehow offended the project gods. Projects recommencing! Projects recommencing!

Boy Chris, you're game to go off-roading on 2 and 4 wheels. Where's the off-road semi?
That a Wrangler, or did they make the CJ series with square headlights?

It is the infamous "Square Headlight Wrangler" made from '87-95 This one is an '88 body with '95 4.0L FI HO motor.
After picking it up for a grand and putting about a grand into it, its now a fairly reliable poor-weather commuter for me.

It now looks like this...

Thanks Alan,
I'm pretty close to seeing if it's a runner. I just have to cut in the oil lines to the cooler, and replace the drive chain. I'm waiting on air filters for the CR carbs, and I have to wire in and mount the oil temp gauge. Then it's show time. FWIW and equally as interesting is Andy's upcoming dyno run. His bike sounds and skoots strongly, so it'll be interesting to see how it does.

Here's where I'm at today. I got the oil cooler lines cut and attached today. I have to make a bracket for the oil temp gauge and mount that next.

It looks great Ben! I want hear how it sounds!

After work today I took Eric for a 30 minute ride around da hood on the CB175. Small bikes are such fun! We both had big smiles on our faces when we got off the bike.

Cheers,
Pete

I want to see a photo of you and Eric on the bike!
I agree about the small bikes. They're so easy to ride, and I am frequently reminded of my first riding experiences.

Small bikes are the way to go. My first bike was a MZ 125cc...had it 1+ year and did my first long distance trip on it. Glad you had a good time! Eric is now hooked Wink

Ben, I will let you take that photo of me and Eric on the CB175 when we come visit you  Smiley

Andy, Eric has been hooked for awhile now. Last year I took him for a few rides on the Concours. He loved it! I'm looking for riding pants for him. He has everything else.

Cheers guys!
