Over the many years I have lived, I have torn down a ton of things. in my earlier years, I did it just to see how far I COULD actually tear something down.

I rarely fixed what I took apart.

Then as I got older, I got smarter. I didn't bother to tear things down that I didn't want to fix, and I learned to be extremely careful with what I took apart, so that I had more parts that I could refurbish and re-use, rather than have to replace.

Today, I stumbled on THIS guy, tearing a motorcycle apart. He reminded me of "me" in my younger days..........before I was too careful.........

enjoy "Episode 1":


WAIT A MINUTE.......HOLD THE PHONE.......

I might have mis-judged this guy.........

Take a look at Episode 2: (He's being much more careful than I originally gave him credit for):


This could prove interesting.......

The bike-on-the-side frame removal trick is common on older Honda bikes. There's very little clearance and removing an engine can be pretty difficult.

I've both removed and installed Honda engines that way, though I throw down a pile of blankets beforehand.

The only time I got a bike on its side was by accident...

This is why we have books full of directions...

or maybe I should try new things...

either way, he did a nice job on the vid!

I watched a few more of his videos about the same bike. Interesting stuff.

Right now, I'm watching a series of videos by another guy, who rebuilt a CB 750, from boxes.......
