I had a '66 Honda Sport 50 when I was 13. I got a new 1969 Honda CL350 when I was in high school and still have it.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

A few of my friends had that bike: a popular bike around these parts. I rode Suzuki.

I was given a 1960 CL-160, was in pretty good shape with a little over 3500 miles..I was working Nike back in the late 80’s and this manager of marketing needed to get rid of it by his wife’s request..” if another bike comes in this garage, one of them has to go”, it ran pretty good for its age....I had a problem in this garage I kept that and other bikes...rats...so I kept the seats of all 3 of my bikes in the house....I came home from work one day back in 2004 to find my house I rented for a month under 21 years had burnt down, all three seats were toast, the CL-160’s seat was just a metal frame with springs...the house had been vandalized after the fire and many things were stolen, even the bike from the garage, back in 1996 I sold a 1982 Honda VF-750 Sabre for $1.00 ..it had issues...and I didn’t want to put any time and money into it.

1951 DOT with 125cc 2 stroke Villiers motor. Tore it down to the last nut and bolt to overhaul it but never got to put it back together. Life got in the way. My father gave the boxes of parts to a neighbour who did put it back on the road though. This was back in the early 70's.
