So now I have two bikes and I don't know how to ride yet... :-\
The Postie I bought recently will be fine for short trips to the station and whatnot but I realised it's not ideal for longer distances so I was looking for a 250 with a 4 cylinder for a bit of fun on the weekends. Like most of you, I'm drawn to classic vehicles but I was looking for a more modern bike to save me the hassle of maintenance and reliability issues. That didn't happen obviously but at least I tried...
I had my eye on the old CB Fours and this one came up in Melbourne. I've not ridden one nor even sat on one but it was just too good to pass up so I jumped on it and just as well because he had a fair bit of interest.
It's a 1972 Honda CB350 Four that has undergone a nut and bolt restoration in the last year with a brand new crate engine sourced by chance from the States.
I'm actually surprised at how cheap all this bike stuff is - well, relative to cars anyway. I figure this will enable me to have a play with modifying the bike to my taste without re-mortgaging the house...
The owner sent me these two videos as well.
Sadly, all of this means the MX5 really has to go now.
