Cheers, Recently made the move from Vero Beach Florida to the foothills of northern Georgia. I have rescued a few Japanese bikes from the 70s in the last few years. I've done three '75 CB400Fs that have been sold. After my move up here into the "land of curvy riding roads" I decided it was time to get something with a bit better handling. Last week I picked up a very nice 1990 NT650 Hawk and (when it rains it pours) also found a really rough CB-1. Cosmetically it's a real dog, but after some carb cleaning it runs great. No smoke or unusual noises and the sound is pure music. Over the next year or so I'll be stripping it down to bare frame and getting it back in shape. It's a little newer bike than I'm used to working on so I know I'll be in need of y'all's advice and definitely some parts for the project. By the way, I write a column for the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club's magazine entitled "the Custom Connection" and would like to feature some "newer" vintage bikes. Thanks for letting me join and I look forward to getting to know y'all. Regards

Welcome to the CB1 brotherhood!  Hope your bike came with all the parts since they're getting very hard to find.

Thanks for the welcome. The bike came with most of the parts, but I may have to fabricate some covers and brackets. I'm not going to attempt a stock restoration, but won't do anything too wild. I hope to end up with something pretty nice.
