G'day from Australia

Post by aussiec100 » Tue Sep 14, 2021 9:22 am

New to forum, 68 year old retired male from sunny Queensland in Australia. I've been into motorcycles all my life, owned dozens, mostly Japanese with a sprinkling of British. Currently ride a 2008 Triumph "modern" Bonneville T100 and have another 2007 Bonneville awaiting restoration/customization/modification. I am Vice President of the British Motorcycle Owners Association in Mackay where I live.

What brings me here? The purchase of an old 1966 Honda C100 (C100-S091147) in rather rough condition. I know next to nothing about these bikes and while searching for info this forum came up in the search results. There seems to be a rich source of info here so I thought I would join.

Since purchasing the C100 and while searching for parts I came across an even rougher 1964? C102 (C102-C052005) which I also purchased. I have attached photos of these bikes as I do not yet have any on-line storage to enable me to link to them in within this post.

It is my intention to restore both bikes starting with the C100. The C102 will have to wait a while as it is down the queue a bit and available time and finances dictate this as necessary. As work on these bikes proceeds I am sure I will need to ask questions of the members of this forum so please be gentle with this newbie.

Maybe one day these little Honda's will look as good too. ;)

Thanks for the welcome.
