Introducing the project Honda SL175. We picked this bike up with our buddy Will. They were located a few hours away over in East St. Louis. It was a “two-for-one” deal. A 1970 Honda CB175 and a 1970 Honda SL175.
The bikes are both very similar sharing most of the main components with only a slight difference in frames and wheels / tires. Both bikes are in need of a good overhaul, but the CB is much closer to road ready.
We’ll be going over these bikes to figure out what they need, and how best to get them back into duty. All of us have various experience levels with wrenching on projects, but we share a common lack of any real experience working on bikes. So this will certainly be a learning process.
Will has the CB175 and Spencer has taken over the SL175.
