Dave57210 I learned how to ride on that bike. Many many years later, my son learned to ride on it, too! So that one is a 70 cc. Mine was the 50 cc (49 to be precise) version.

For the trivia fans, there have been more Honda Cubs sold than any other motor vehicle ever made. Over 100 million of 'em! And they are STILL being made and sold all over!

Yes. The splash aprons, upper radiator shroud, and bottom of the hood are all painted but not polished. The top of the hood I think is the only thing left to paint red.

I asked Steve today if he wanted the grill and/or stainless. Seeing the shiney go on will be the next big thrill.

Looks like a sweet ride!
It says Honda 70 on the side below the seat. A co-worker had it, probably bartered something. Thats remarkable that you still have yours and running to boot. I got a 75 Nova hatchback for my 16th.

Speaking of red rides, who is into these? 1971 with 869 miles.

I did have a hole saw at home, coulda used that. I used it for the driver side hole in the defog duct.

Plasma cutter... Early retirement present...
Ran errands, paid a couple bills, opened a carton with a bird feeder from amazon, only to find it broken. I'll drop that off at the UPS store to return to them tomorrow morning on my way to Chicago.

Wouldn't be shaping.

I think he was makin himself one of them thar Jethronaughts.

Today's afternoon commute was odd. Rolled through seven green lights in a row.

It was 68 degrees.

Actually got to look at a clean GTP for three whole days, too.

Theres gonna be hell to pay for that little shot of grace. Most folks would buy a lotto ticket.

cozwurth I put the power steering pump on the Z, and pretty much got the air bled out. Letting it sit overnight, and will tinker again tomorrow evening. I think I'll be heading down to Ausley's to swap out the roof panel on Saturday. I spoke to them this morning, and they were discussing shipping the panel to me but I asked them not to. I don't want to deal with possible damage during shipping. They were very apologetic about the mistake, and said that they would do something for me when I get there. I'm taking my share of the blame as I helped load the box, and even looked at the 3" high lettering that says "66-67" while I was cinching down the ratchet straps.
I paid for my building permit, so that should be in my possession soon. Not sure if I still have to go by the county office, or if they will be emailing it to me. I guess I'll find out tomorrow. I spoke with the concrete guy this evening. He says that he can get started next week. I'm not expecting too much since Thanksgiving is next week. The building itself is 4-6 weeks out, not including the holidays, but also depends on the concrete.

Getting to the point of sorting fasteners and organizing is a desirable goal, after a monumental move. I don't see me getting to that point until next summer. No heat in the "shop" building this year. I'll be working as much as I can stand all winter to get funds for the existing building upgrade to a workable shop.
