Hello Everyone !

Hello,
Just wanted to introduce myself to the group. My name is Mark and I have been a Honda fan since the 70's.
I cannot remember how may I have had over the years, but it has been many. I currently have 3. My old 1974 CT70, 2007 XR650L, and my newest find a 1985 Honda Rebel. The rebel is a peach!! It was in my mother in-laws barn un ridden since 2002 and has 921 original miles. I am in the process of rebuilding the carb although I did have it running once, but obviously very roughly as it was not stored properly. It had been messed with a bit over the years but is basically in very good condition and only needs a few parts. I would say 95% original everything. Looks like someone took of the buddy pegs and changed the rear blinkers. I am waiting on the original blinkers I have ordered, and decent buddy pegs are turning out to be a challenge to find. I'll keep you all posted with pictures and progress.
