So, did you make it to the ride? It was still raining here at 9:30, so I pulled the plug on that idea and rebuilt some carbs instead. We'll have to try it again sometime.

Any of you guys still around? A group of Honda guys get together weekly from dotheton.com, Usually in Ellwood City, or Beaver to wrench/ride/eat/drink..

You are all more than welcome to join!

Thread... RISE! IT'S ALIIIIVEEEEE!!!  ::)

I'm a bit north here near Punxsutawney, PA (home of that weather-predicting vermin) but I'm originally from Ambridge with family from all around there. RT. 28 South takes me right to yins. ;D We have a little posse up here who like to do some riding and we might be headed south for some rides this summer. I'm the only Honda (3 Kawas??? Really???) so I could use some backup! ;) Might see some of y'all 'round some events.

Sorry for the resurrection but seeing other 'burgh riders made me giddy ;D

I would be glad to see if this thread gets going again! Might be a good time to get a bunch of 750's together and check out every one's rides!

looks like this thread is kinda  old but maybe now that it's ridding time in pittsburgh ,  time to restart this thread. 

i  live  south of the city,  pleasant hills,  whitehall, baldwin , Century III mall  area.    Ridding a 1973  CB500.    If anyone would like to get together and ride on the weekend or evenings and your close by send me a message.   I'm  more about touring and sightseeing than ridding at breakneck speeds. 

So far i did a nice saturday ride down to wheeling this past weekend,  and did my first motorcycle camping trip out to Raccoon state park about 2 weeks ago.

Zombie Thread!

I moved to the Burgh with my first CB750 in pieces 3 years ago, this winter it is finally getting put back together. So, if anybody wants to meet up let me know!

I'm in White Oak, just north of McKeesport. I will be willing to ride as soon as my 1.5 CB750s includes one complete CB750.

Hey Paul, I live in Pittsburgh and am picking up my first bike this month, a 1975 cb550. My family is from Greensburg and I'm actually keeping the bike in a family member's garage until spring.
Saw this thread come to the top and thought I'd see if you're still riding, gotta get some miles clocked, but thought it'd be cool to connect to with someone local.

Adam, I should have my 750 on the road this spring. I work in the Mt. Pleasant area, I'll probably see you around.

Looks like there's a few guys in the area, maybe once the weather stabilizes we can get out for a meet/greet/ride. lots of good riding around here.

Hmmm... you're quite local...
check out the FB group...

it was better before it grew too big and got out of hand... a select core of us meets Wednesday evenings (weather permitting)down near Neville Island. (Vintage Bikes)
