1970 Honda SL175 K0 #1

VIN# SL175-1016810

Candy Sapphire Blue

I bought this bike with only 3000 miles on it and it was pretty nice to begin with.  So far I have had the front fender and headlamp bucket repainted.  The headlamp bucket had a small scratch in it and the front fender had obviously been repainted at some time in the past and didn’t match very well.  Thanks to Brian Ratkos for taking the time to match the paint and do a great job. 

The bike came to me with a K1 seat on it and if you know anything about the differences, there was a gap between the seat and fuel tank of about 2 inches.  The bike came to me with the original seat, but it had a crack in the pan.  I sent it off to Bob’s General Services www.bgsmc.com for repairs and it came back looking great.  The fork ears had a few pits of chrome and I managed to find an NOS set and also replaced the front forks with NOS items due to someone having put vise grips on them at some point.

This bike has never been taken down and restored, it just looks really nice being pampered and touched up.  The gauges look great and are not faded at all.  It really runs and drives nice.
