Found this baby in the basement. From what I can tell it is a cb 175 Honda. I don't think it has been started in 20 years. Does anyone know a date this bike would have been manufactured? Or how much work it would take to get it up and running? It would be a sweet around town bike. Thanks.

    Rukus, that would be a 1973 model, the serial No. should start with cb175-8xxxxxx. That will make an excellent around town bike. You will have to at least treat the tank and carbs to a good freshening up, as well as an oil change and points adjustment. My guess is it needs a battery as well. Check the tire sidewalls for cracks. Good luck..............................D. Oh, can the backrest!

    Sweet bike. I'm thinking very hard on buying a '72 CB175 this weekend. Just curious, but you found it in THE basement? As in your own basement?

    I don't know if you've seen the horders show, but I'm living the cleaning out part. The sad thing is it's still in the basement. Waiting on the DMV to get me a title.

    Gotcha, well good luck to you on the cleaning out, as well as taking that bike out!
