Well mine doesn't thump either, but here it is:

This summer I have to do a little carburetor work and likely a top end rebuild. Last time I took it out, I hit 30mph in 5th gear pinned after about a mile of acceleration. :bonk: The bike has actually been my Grandpa's for the last 25 years, and he rode the hell out of it all the way through. I'm 14 and don't have a full time job so I enjoy doing engine work when I'm bored. Haha I will probably buy it from him when I'm 16 and ride it to school... I don't care if the CBR600 guys at my school do make fun of me, because I know I can wheelie a hell of a lot further than they can. :thumbsup:

Is that bare metal on the side sections of the tank? It looks kool! :thumbsup:

If it's bare, did you coat anything over it to keep it from rusting?

I usually have a few going at once. I like to pace myself. Here's a couple of my projects:

This one is almost done. Gotta get the pipe painted and installed, couple detail items. 75 CR125M

This one is in the back of the shop waiting its turn. My first non-Japanese attempt. 74 250CR Mag

Here's a QA50 that I restored for a friend. The only thumper in the lot! It started out as a complete basket case.

I have a couple more Honda CRs and an RM370 but I'll have to dig for some more pics.

One is a 73 CR250, almost done too. And a 77 CR125 that I'm modifying with period parts. I'm also restoring a CL100 for my brother. It's scattered right now.

You sound like a very busy man. I also have two 441 victors "on the bench", a cl77 Honda scrambler (complete but needs paint), and a '75 CR360 GP Husky newly aquired rolling basket case, all in the works.
