Hi from cambridge / greece

Post by Danbloke » Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:03 am

Always had bikes both big and small and have just sold my old but reliable k1200rs. Love touring/ camping/ buying old knackered push bikes off eBay and doing em up at a loss lol. Is this starting to sound like a dating agency add.

Anyway I've got myself a bit hooked on these beasts. I think they look really good in their own way. They appear bullet proof and possibly within my abilities to maintain. I'll do general stuff, breaks, lubs etc but a bit twitchy about engines and electrics - I'm hoping this is more do-able on these machines or at least it won't cost me ££££ if it breaks or I break it... thoughts please?

Misses thinks I'm odd cos I'm taking photos of/ stopping in my tracks to look at them. Currently on holiday in Greece and they are EVERYWHERE. A sure demonstration of their reliability. Saw a fisherman yesterday with a classically loaded up one - wish I got a pic.

Anyway I'm looking for a tatty old one that's got at least 10k in it to do up. Not that I'm short of projects or have the time. Any pointers much appreciated.

One question (or 2) - what sort of mileage will they do? Also which one? C80/c100. Im not after masses of speed but more than a 50 cc for sure.

Thanks to all
Dan.

Welcome Dan!
I'm just across the boarder, not too far from you!

I can't offer any technical advice, but there's lots here who can!
But I will say for sure.. I doubt you'll manage to break it!! :mrgreen:

Hello Dan,
I'd suggest you get a 12v model. More reliable and easier for a first-timer. Parts are cheap and often still available from the local Honda dealer.
Buying one isn't difficult. Finding one withing a budget and/or that isn't over priced is more difficult.
Good luck and keep us posted!
