Offering this titled 1971 Honda CL175.

This bike has been featured in a display window at the flagship Neiman Marcus downtown, and in Psychedelic Robot art gallery, Dallas, TX.

I have a large tote filled with spare parts including good carbs, a spare head, additional gaskets, etc. that I will also include with the sale.
The bike runs and rides but needs two minor jobs that I will attempt to cover if I have time during this auction.  First, the regulator/rectifier is a Kohler small engine part.  It is a 3 wire reg/rec and the Honda alternator is 4 wire.  It isn’t charging so the wiring is probably backwards or incorrect.  Output at the alternator is normal so this should be an easy fix, or replace with the existing 2 part Honda reg/rec and find somewhere to put it.  Second, I deleted the tachometer and tried to seal the hole at the side cover with a rubber grommet, but it weeps so it should be fixed. 
Please contact me w offers and I will end early.  I will assist in shipping or pickup.  I also have video of the bike running and riding.
