The Honda C92 and the dignity of an old lady

I have been pretty busy with the shop lately and not very active on this blog. A lot has happened since the last post: new products in the shop, a professional photo shoot and last but not least a temporary adoption of an old lady. The lady in question is an almost original Honda C92 that has been neglected for far too long, being left standing out in the Thai monsoon rain and under the scorching sun of the hot season.

Fortunately, my friend Colm discovered this little gem and not having enough space nor the tools, asked me to give her back some of her dignity.

The main purpose is to get her back on the road as soon as possible, so this is obviously not going to be a full blown restoration project. The work done so far includes cleaning the carb, getting rid of grime and dirt and an oil change.
The tank is currently at the shop being refurbished and painted.
