1972 Honda CB100

So I picked this up last weekend for cheap, sonic boiled the carb, adjusted throttle cable and reset timing to get it running proper. Have 2 new tires and a seat cover coming for it and then it's going on the showroom floor at Flying Tiger Motorcycles. Complete, good title, everything works. Hoping to make a good little bit on it, need to flip a few bikes so I can get the Moto Guzzi I want.

Nice find. My first bike was a 71 CL 100. It had the high exhaust pipe. That made it dual purpose don't ya know.

Hope you make something on it.

I'm looking at a '74 CB125S with the high side pipe also, right now me and the seller are 25 bucks apart but I'm gonna let it sit a couple more weeks. It started up on a cold day with 1 kick, but it needs some parts to make it totally good. I'll update if I end up with it

my first bike as well. I bought it off my aunt when she went to Vietnam (army nurse). I beat the hell out of that bike. When the exhaust valve head broke off and the stem punched a hole in the piston it became a 125cc 'big bore' since I had to rebuild it anyway.

great little bike.
