Hello Carmen and welcome to the board.  I'm trying to put together a mailing list of all UK members of this board so that we can run some organised "meets" during the summer.

Take a look at the thread Bob points to, I started it a while back with this in mind.

Your 350 looks fantastic on www.realclassic.co.uk/honda05012100.html - maybe we should get other SOHC4 owners from around here to hook up.  There are also some active members from Europe (mainly Spain and Denmark) who may be interested.

Steve

PS The rhododendrons look good too!

Hi All,

Thanks for introducing yourselves!! The Rhododendrons were in Full Flower on my ride at the weekend - so had to stop and take a piccy - came out quite well!!
Unfortunately I don't live with my bike (no garage at my place) which you may know if you read my story - I live in Herts but the bike is in Dorset. But I go back every now and then to have a ride (oh and see my parents!!)

 ;D

Hi, all you fellow Brits. I live in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire and I own a CB750 K6 which is partway through re-assembly. At the moment I am struggling with electrickery bits and what a nightmare its turning into, I may need help before I start pulling out what little hair I have left , so look out for future posts.

Dave,
Welcome. If the answer is out there you will find it on this forum. We are lucky to have one of the most knowledgeable chaps on Hondas on the forum, he is Bryan Jones, here in the UK(bryanj).

Hello again Tom and welcome to the site. I had another look at you site today - looks like it is going well. I was jealous of your polished casings. I really must bite the bullet and do mine some time soon.

Cheers
