Hello fellow riders,
My first bike was a used Honda C110, bought back in 1963. I owned a series of Hondas afterwards, the last being a CB350F. I wrenched at the local Honda dealer from 1964 through about 1980 when I got away from the sport. Fast forward to 2014 when I got the bug again and found a nice 1975 CB125S2 low miles survivor.

A few months later I learned of the rare Honda GB500 and became infatuated with it's looks and classic single cylinder engine. Ended up finding two of them and now have all three bikes about as close to original as I can make them. It's been great to be back in the saddle and also working on bikes again. There's just something special about wrenching on and riding the bikes of my youth. Since I grew up with them they seem like current models to me, or at least not "vintage." But the compliments and questions I get from people make me realize I'm actually riding around on time capsules, unfamiliar to younger people and long forgotten by many my age.

I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.
-Bill
