Hey All - Joining the Club - 1980 CB650
« on: July 10, 2019, 11:29:51 am »
Hey All:

- New to riding and the site. I just purchased a CB650 that was for sale here in Wisconsin (near FDL). I've attached a photo.

- First bike, everything is running smoothly and I've started tinkering with the basics, but I'd be happy to read any pointers for keeping a nearly 40 y.o. bike on the road for a long time.

Thanks, looking forward to posting more.

Welcome from MA.

Diggin' the Flying Tigers vibe!


If it is running and safe you can take your time on restoring -- at least try to stretch out the big operations until next winter.


Enjoy!
