A little over a year ago the red Sandcast Honda CB750, that Vic over at world motorcycles restored for us, arrived. Well, we sort of got a taste for them and asked Vic to restore another sandcast CB750 for us, this time a blue one, and to make one with as low a number as possible. Since then Vic has been hard at work restoring bike number 742(!) for us and yesterday he sent us this video of the first start. There’s still some work to be done, and a voyage across an ocean, but it’s starting to come together and it is running fine!
As those of you who tried to access the site during the weekend noticed: we’ve been having some database issues. They are solved now and we’re up and running again (remember: always backup your data!).
It’s time for another update! This time we have the parts list for the TA125, it’s basically a racing version of the AS3. As such, it shares a lot of parts with its street-going brother but a lot of parts have been changed for higher performance.
This will help you in finding out which ones! As always, you can view the manual by clicking the picture below or by going to the manuals section.
TA125 Parts List
A little while back we bought a new bike from France, a 1971 AS2J, it looked like it was in good condition. When it arrived we were surprised by just how good the condition was. We decided to start it up and take it for a test drive.
It runs perfectly, starts on the first kick, revs well, the clutch is good, the idle is good. We’ve decided to keep it unrestored. We will replace the headlight insert with a NOS swedish spec and replace a leaking oil gasket, but other than that it’ll stay like it is.
Hope you like it as much as we do!
