I finally have my last two projects completed,and it is time to start on the 1965 Honda that has been in one of my out buildings waiting her turn on the airlift of the main shop. Before starting on the disassembly,I removed and cleaned out the fuel tank,swiped a carb off of one of the trail 70's, put in some fresh fuel,changed the oil, re-established spark, lubricated the cylinder, and after a few kicks she started up !  I just wanted to hear it run before I began the project. I dropped it into gear while on the center stand and ran it through the gears,all seems o.k with it ! Here is a look at the first session:

CL 90? Cool project, what are the plans? I've been sort of looking for one to do a Lifan 125 swap. I figure I'll need the extra horses to pull my extra bulk!

This is a 65 cc    1965 Honda, the   model is S  65   !    I think the "dream" was a 305 .  I've had the  90....and the 160.....in the past.....and am trying to remember what ever happened to them ?   TOO many bikes over too many years !   thanks for the reply's y'all !   More pics coming as progress is made......as you know, these things are a LONG slow process, that I have repeated many times over the decades. is it all worth it ?   well I just don't know ! but....it's what I like to do !   Thought I would catch up on the original post I made some time ago.....(link provided).   The guy that I got the bike from keeps asking me....."is it done yet" ?    well he had it for 3 decades and did NOTHING with it,  .....................Tony :D

That was one of the models I was looking at when I was shopping for my first bike in early '66. I ended up with a '65 Yamaha YG-1 80cc. Paid $200 from a friend. I had it four weeks, put 5K miles on it and sold it for $350. ! I only had a jr. license so I couldn't drive after sunset, but I drove the stuffings out of it. I pulled into a gas station and one of the workers asked if it was for sale, and how much. I told him- he pulled the money out of his pocket, took off my plate and put it in the back of his truck and took off. I had to call my Mom to come pick me up!

Hey minimac ...I liked that story ya told there !  Those were the kind of "deals" and "acquisitions" a guy could come buy ALL of the time !
Now ya look around for this ol' stuff to play with, and they want a small fortune for it !  So ,when I find one for a couple hundred bucks,I usually buy it,even if I don't get at it for awhile.  Take a look at this link :

http://motorcycles.oodle.com/1960_1969-yamaha/for-sale/condition_used/

The yellow Yamaha YG -1  trailmaster located in New Milford N J  sounds like a really nice "time capsule" of the bike you used to have !
(but ya aint gonna get it for $200. bucks ! ).....................................Tony :D

You rode yours "5000 miles in 4 weeks" /  ?    ....WOW !

I rode that thing from sunrise to sunset! For the first week, I only had my learners permit! Next bike was a '66 Honda 305 Superhawk, that was repossessed with 400 miles. IIRC, I paid $400 for that at a bank auction.
 Those days are long gone and I'll probably never see similar prices, unless they're junk

Still cold most of the time here in Toledo,got out last weekend for a thirty mile ride fri. after work, then 100 miles on sat.........then winter came back and the two sixty degree days were gone  ,    looking at some snow accumulation for tonite, so no sneaking in any rides here in the near future !
So I guess I will work on this current restoration project, things are coming along nicely,  "ya gotta break a few eggs ,to make a beautiful cake"

Continuing the work on the 1965 Honda 65 S ,  Taking her down to the bare frame, and found that I was "evicting" a family of mice I The frame was FULL of mouse nest !







I have most of the parts put in primer at this point , I will paint all of the pieces next , but will NOT reassemble the bike till next winter ....cause now it's riding season ! !







More later !..............................Tony :D

Hmmm... think you need a gixxer front end, clip-on bars, led effect lights, bar end mirrors and a tail tidy kit.    

Seriously, enjoying the process.  Looking forward to the next update.

The days for riding are numbered here in northern ohio, I have been putting some hours in on this ol' Honda resto project ,  Fitted her with new tires ,tubes and rim bands,and that kinda lit the fire to get going on the reassembly, here are a couple of pics of how far I got to ,as of last weekend.A lot of hours of cleaning ,painting and polishing ,all of the pieces came back very nicely ,and the chrome is still in great shape for being a half century old ! .....Tony :D

Are you going to eventually find the correct front fender for it, or use the one it has?

I've wanted to restore an S90 for years, just kind of chicken about starting such a project.

I have been "beatin the bushes" for awhile now looking for the correct front fender for this s 65......the quality of jap plastic back then, was poor ! very brittle and cracks easily !the ones I have seen for sale are pretty much junk. the ones that I've seen that are ok ....the guy wants too much money for !  I am no expert on these machines .....but have talked with guys on other forums that have said that this  model was also available with the front steel fender as shown ?  so I found it to be a perfect bolt pattern alignment ....and no one has done the tell-tail signs of a "cob job" on this one, so it's gonna go down the road as is for now ....until one of the plastic ones in good shape comes my way ! had to make some repairs to nearly every other piece of old plastic on it, that had cracked.the project continues......I will have this one done soon ,and will start looking for my next project to start on ,as I try to do  1 per winter,to stay out in the shop till next riding season starts !  I got a tad over 8000 miles of great rides in this 2016 on my other bikes

The truck in the back ground is my 61' Dodge panel truck I bought in 1975 when I was in high school, took up mechanics in school and have been doing that for 39 years now.   I have had many engines in it .it currently has a 340  four speed in it for the power plant.,...and have painted it ,then stripped it ....then got sick of that look , then strip it again, then re-painted it....then years later repeat.....Well I painted it as you see it , in the garage you see it in ,  in 2006......I'M DONE  .....I will leave it alone and my son will likely crash it the day after I kick the bucket !

That's great, looks like a brand new motorcycle.  Nice touch painting the centerstand white to match.  Good job.
