    Happy 2021 friends. Even though 2020 was tough, I learned a lot about taking care of my bike. Thanks for your help. I am just trying to fine tune those carbs and get that idle smooth and perfect. Any recommendations on gauges? I am reading about the procedure. Thanks! Jeff

    Hi, I’m in need of a Standard or Deluxe tank to fit a 1980 CX500 in at least salvageable condition and able to be shipped to Australia. Minor dents/surface rust/blemishes are fine as long as there isn’t significant rust inside and no major leaks that can’t be fixed. Thanks Lachie
