    New Member Introductions
    Hey everyone, After scouring the internet for a few hours, I found this site and made an account. I'm riding a 1972 Honda CB500, and today while riding, the shift lever popped down past it's usual position, and I could no longer shift. When I looked closer, I saw that the teeth on shift...
