:::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Starting a new project. As if I don't have enough already. CB175 restoration. Not sure how wild I am taking it in the direction of a cafe build. I have been watching ogsmakdade's penny build and it has been an inspiration. I acquired this after my grandfather passed away. I had worked out a price with him before he died and paid that to my aunt (executor of the will) and now she's mine. Bike had been in a garage since 81'

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Fast forward about 3 months from that pic and I'm finally making a run at it. I drug it out of my shed today and soaked it down with purple power. Gave it a good bath and took a few pics





While the bike does have a lot of pitting in the chrome pieces, I was surprised how clean it came.



Love that red line! Almost as high as I rev the lude! JK ;p Also 6500 original miles should mean she has some life left.

When I picked the bike up it was missing the kick start lever. I put the bike in gear and with a running start dumped the clutch and the engine seem to be locked up from sitting. Tonight after the bath I pulled the plugs and put some marvels mystery oil and a little bit of pub blaster in the cylinders. Curiosity got the best of me so I went and got the kick start lever I purchased on eBay and slapped it on. Just leaned on the lever and the engine moved! So now I am not looking at quite the project I thought I was! (Let's hope lol).

So now I have ordered keys for the bike so I can unlock the seat and get to the battery and other electronics. Also will have to order new tires and tubes and most likely a few carb rebuild kits. The more I sit and type the more excited I become to see this project come to be!

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Thanks for all the kind words guys.

Gonna keep this thread alive.

Today was a holiday for me (gotta love govt work!) So I got cracking on the bike.

Started by unbolting the seat latch since my keys probably won't arrive for a few days. Removed the air cleaner boxes and started trying to remove the carburetors. They had some serious gunk glued inside and I caught hell removing them because of this. To take off the carb you have to be able to move the slide inside. I have never removed a carb off a bike before but I spent about an hour spraying carb cleaner and cursing before I got these off.

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Had a lot of corrosion on the old battery. It was engraved with a date from 1980 on top. Adding water and trying to charge it wasn't an option since the case was split down the middle.



Battery and a carb



Check that varnish in the carburetor. I was surprised at how hard that stuff is to scrape off. I'm going to get one of those one gallon paint cans full of carb cleaner and set these bad boys down in it until I get closer to this weekend and more importantly hopefully my keys getting here. Also had the opportunity to grab a spare battery and throw 12v straight to the starter. Turned over immediatlely. I put the bike in gear and put some PB blaster on the chain as it turned to try to clean it up a bit

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

I ran across an interesting method called 'parkerizing' that some folks do to certain car parts.

It's a process that keeps steel from rusting while in storage.
Turns the metal dark, but adds a protective, rust inhibiting finish that stops rust cold with a light coat of oil applied.
It started with guns, but some car guys do hinges, and other parts that rust. A light coat of oil over adds years of rust free storage indoors or out.

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

If you're gonna full restore, you gotta wire wheel the frame and rust proof primer and repaint. So fancy that bike of yours will look

Definitely man. All depends on how well I can get it running and how much I like to ride it. I have never been on a bike on the streets, just dirt bikes so it will be a learning experience. The frame I will most likely have blasted and powder coated and when I get to painting the tank and intake boxes I think I would go with electron blue pearl to match my car :)

The bike is real simple once you start taking it apart I don't think there would be much involved in going through it

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Also I went to the DMV and got the title changed to my name Tuesday. It's all official now. It took them 3 hours to find the bike in the system since it hadn't been registered in so long. According to my USPS tracking number, my keys will be here today. I think I may try to slap the carbs together today and get some new fuel line ran to them so I can attempt to start it today or tomorrow. If it is to ever run again I hope to have it running by Saturday, banking that the coil and the rest of the electronics are still in functioning order.

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Braved the cold weather last night in my shed to try to get some tinkering done. I got home to find a bunch of goodies in my mailbox, one being the set of keys I ordered for the bike. So my battery for the bike hasn't arrived yet, so I used a car battery on the floor and a set of jumper cables to make it reach the bikes battery connections.
At first, I wasn't getting any power through the bike at all. I found a fuse just past the battery and pulled it out and put it back in and the tail light came on. Then I started jiggling the ignition and the headlight switch and the headlights came on, next the turn signals, a little wiggling of the switch and they started working. I guess 30 years of sitting can get some corrosion in the contacts. Lastly I wanted to see the starter work, I had it spinning with 12 volts directly connected but wanted to get the button working. I pushed and pushed the button until I started hearing a clicking noise from near the battery area and the lights dimming so I just kept pushing the button and it finally turned over. So now everything electrical seems to be functioning besides spark. I am assuming the points need to be cleaned on the bike. Still shooting to have the engine running by this weekend

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

Got home today and cleaned the points and we have fire! Now just to finish putting the carbs back together and see if it runs. I must say that when carburetor cleaner hits your hands when its literally freezing cold outside, the effects are devastating. The carb cleaner that comes in a paint bucket though, that stuff did very well at cleaning the deposits on the carbs, I didn't think it was very caustic but it did the trick

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

don't use anything less than 91 octane in that bike, the ethanol in the lower grade fuel will tear up that carb. I learned this the hard way.

Glad to finally see this project of yours, very nice bike. I'm sure your grandfather would be very proud of the progress you've already made.

Dude I know right! I have fished beers out of an icy cooler grave and pulled my hands out in better functioning shape lol. I was dumbfounded at how I lost feeling and control so quickly. I brought the carburetor parts inside tonight and got them ready. I have to get some new fuel line tomorrow to feed them and I want to change the oil before I fire it up. These bikes have a non replaceable centrifugal oil "filter" that slings all the **** in to a cup behind the clutch cover. Definitely have to visit that before I try to run the engine

Thanks for the advice and just dropping in in general ogsmakdade, upon your advice I will run nothing but high octane in the bike. I really hope to fire it up tomorrow man. I hope to post a video tomorrow of it!

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175



Removed cover to find 5 broken teeth on my front sprocket out of 14. Have to order a new one, thinking of dropping down to a 12 tooth sprocket for some more low end power. This bike doesn't have a good top speed and wasn't really built to be a speed machine, so I thinkiI will make it more fun for around town blasting

Re: :::bigblue7t6::: 1972 CB175

I got the bike running today. A little starting fluid and it fired right up. Carbs were leaking fuel from the bowls, petcock was leaking fuel. Other than that a pretty solid day. Trying to figure out the best way to share the short clip I took of it running. I couldn't get the clutch to disengage, it seems to be stuck internally, so I have decided to start rebuilding the engine now. I'm going to try to get away with cleaning it out, new gaskets and piston rings and a quick hone

Here is a link to the video. I told my dad to "wrap it" as I had already revved it to redline. His version of wrap it was probably about 3000 rpms lol

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
