I was contacted 3-4 weeks ago by a guy I had helped out in the past with his Honda Falcon, that he was using as a commuter bike near London. The bike had been standing since March 2016 and was I interested in it at a modest price for spares or repair....? Is the Pope Catholic....

So, the following weekend it was a Sunday morning 6am start for the trip to Stanstead. On arriving I found a slightly bedraggled bike, but with everything there and typical Honda, charge the battery, fresh fuel and away it went!!

Got it home in the pickup and put the rear caliper back in place and 10mins later. my lad was riding around the farm lane The rear caliper piston was seized, again typical Honda, but 48hrs soak with WD40 and some pry/squeeze work and it was good, new pads both ends already fitted.

Came with new C&S that I have fitted, although the rear was 45 not a 40t, but that will soon be sorted with a 16t front I have in stock somewhere For the moment I turned the 40t around.

I stripped the rear linkages and swingarm to regrease, but again, Honda Brazil had greased it, unlike some factories, so all good. Wire brushed the swing arm because of low level corrosion and repainted with 2 layers of hammerite (looks good!) and also stripped the rear shock and cleaned the external corrosion and fitted a sock (inner tube!!).

MOT'd last week and sailed through

Pic, Old and New arrivals!

Not sure what to do with it.... I thought of using it for spares originally, but with only 6k miles its far too good for that. Might "lend" it to my son instead of that stupid GS500 that we need to sell as it far too small for him

Or cash it in to someone wanting a genuine small ADV bike. Dunno...

To be honest that is what I thought originally, but it seemed a crime!

I reckon the motor alone (with an electric foot) would be worth a few quid ...?

It would be worth a nice sum I'd imagine!

Luckily, all I need is a piston, so will be putting a high compression one in very soon
