The car that I bought some Hoosier asphalt slicks for is gone, and the truck I was going to put them on got sold out from under me, so I sold the tires. And for the same, putridly low price I bought this putridly crappy motorcycle.

Illustration for article titled Effective Trade

It’s a 1970 Honda CL350. It is not, exactly, all there...but the motor turns over freely and that’s all I was really concerned with anyway.

It’s a rat, and it’ll stay a rat. I’ll pull the dent on the gas tank, fabricate some sheet metal side covers, and cobble together some junk yard lighting. I might never ride it, I don’t really like riding, but I do like motorcycles. I’ll have $100 worth of fun with it in any case.
