Thanks guys!

My dad got me hooked onto the Honda bikes. He use to take me on his '81 CX500 Custom all the time as a kid. Now its time we ride together!

Dad's CX500 Custom (minus the bags):

Yeah! He's working on the carbs on it right now and it'll be as good as new! He bought it new off the showroom floor when he was 19. He's not getting rid of it lol. He actually bought a same era Silverwing just like his CX there. He uses it for his summer vehicle since its made for long rides lol

That's awesome man. My grandpa still has his '76 CB750 he bought new. Hopefully after I graduate I plan on fixing it up once I got money.

Lazler, I got a Honda 250 custom I might be willing to part with. Chatham isn't that far from Brantford.

I've got a few Honda pushmowers, how do those compare? lol.

Looks like fun. I've always wanted to work on a bike, but i don't have a desire to ride.
