Amazing bike, amazing work. Most people would have left that bike for dead but you and your imagination saw a diamond in the rough. Be sure to let your wife know that her work on the seat really makes the bike.

After all that work, I would have a hard time letting it go. Someone is going to be very happy with it. It would make a great raffle item at a VFW or something like that.

In the future, I would love you to create a thread, in baby steps, how you set up the directionals and where you get the parts for them. They really look slick.

Awesome video Spokes. After watching it I just had to take mine out for a spin. These bikes are so much fun. While I was buzzing around, I kept thinking about how much fun and lucky someone is going to be with that bike.

Thank You Chip

I finished the Scrambler I agreed to refurb in trade for the SuperHawk. I won't make that mistake again! Here are some videos.

Are you sure wasn't caused by loose "Spokes"? (Smirk) or maybe caused by a small WW2 land mine?

Great photo by the way. Man that bike looks slick.

"...twisted creative thinking mode..." LOL.
Say, are you planning to document your upcoming '67 CA160 build here? I for one vote to go ahead and do it - of course only if you want to. It really is the next generation kissing cousin to the CA95 and shares many similarities. I guess one could say the also 4-spd '68 (only and last year of the sloper motor) CD175 is also the following generation to the CA160 and another close relative of the CA95 - again so similar we could almost bend the (not a CA95) rule if nobody objected. My 2 cents.
