Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

New member -- old bike was created by Stephen12345

New member with a 1970 175 Enduro. In Michigan. Used to be my dad's bike; he rode it in the 70s and 80s in California. Sat for a while and now attempting to get it back on the road. Looking forward to when it happens.

Welcome from coastal Southern California! I recently spent several months getting my dad's old 1971 CT-1 back on the road, that had been sitting and rusting for over 30 years, so maybe I can help here and there.

Thanks Tom. I'm getting a lot of help from a very knowledgeable neighbor. Tough thing: finding a seat!

welcome from OC CA!

that bike has huge potential

If you never tried "Evaporust" you might want to get a couple of gallons as it takes the rust off of washed parts most amazingly!
