Hello

Hi everyone

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself. I got my first bike a couple years back. Since then it seems I've started a collection. Next came my Ducati Monster and in the past week picked up two bikes, a Scrambler and an adorable 1968 Honda CB350, from an estate sale for prices that were too good to pass up. Hauled away two bikes, some spare parts and more gear than I need from that sale. Sort of an impulse buy to get both at the same time but both have been on my want list for awhile so they were a well thought out impulse buy.

I'm getting ready to start some body and paint work on one of the bikes. I have some experience in automotive painting from my early years but I have much to learn. I'm looking forward to starting this project. Any advice and inspiration you all have to offer will be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome! People on this forum are really helpful. They're also great at helping others to spend $$ for mods! Congrats on adding two bikes to your collection, 'course we want some pics...

I wave to everyone on two wheels (unless it's a car).

Let's see that Honda.
My first bike was a '72 CL350. Or was it 360?
Memory is a little hazy on stuff I did back around '81 or '82.

These days, a hazy memory doubles as rose colored glasses for me! Lol!

I posted some from the test ride in my garage. I'll post more once it's here with me.

I went to Dallas to pick up. The auction ended in October but only just had the delivery arrive last week.

The latest bikes ended up being put into my soon to be emptied storage unit. I'm in the middle of a move and everything I own, including my first two motorcycles, have the garage at the new place stacked top to bottom. This week I'll be clearing it out, extending the current workbench and then I can bring the other two home. I can get better, more detailed photos then. The Scrambler is in bad shape but no engine issues so far. It's the paint and seat that need a lot of attention. I have another very rough restoration piece on its way. A '65 Ducati 48TS. It's in baaaad shape. Can't wait for it to get here!

I love this girl. I'd like to take this time to to send shout out to Brandon from Rawhide Cycles, who I met at a vintage motorcycle show. This bike belonged to her late husband and has been sitting in a garage for who knows how long. Brandon gave it a second shot at being what it was meant to be which was being opened up on the road putting down miles.

Photos are in my garage, by the way.
