Well, yes. This IS America.

1960s Birmingham, Alabama
1970 attack on unarmed student protesters at Kent State University
Police action at peaceful UC Davis Occupy protest
Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.
The original ad for this ‘67 CL90 Scrambler read, “Honda has more fresh ideas than boys around a bikini.”
Here is the next project: Desert Find 1967 CL90
Fast little thing for only being a 90. Not quite sure what I’m going to do but Dues’s CB100 is inspiring.
Ive already done a good cleaning and got a few things for it. Needs the top end rebuilt and the usual cables, brakes, carb rebuild, but its going to be a sweet little bike.
