Hi all...I'm in the middle of restoring a 51 year old Honda. I will need a few parts re-chroming and wonder if anyone could recommend someone near or far?? Thanks Gerry

This was the first Jap bike I rode, after sitting outside Len Turner's shop in Borough Road on my 500cc AJS, looking at these Hondas and thinking "they'll never catch on". I rode one, WOW what a revelation, every time I stopped at the lights I thought the engine had stopped. Good luck with the restoration, at least it appears to be complete.

Thanks loco... I had one when I was 17 and loved it to bits!! This one has got a few engine bits missing and the chainguard (hens teeth) but I'm determined to get it back 'as new' if at all possible :-))

Just thought I'd update this thread...I gave up on the restoration as the engine was unusable and replacement extremely expensive and hard to find.
So ...I bought this - 1964 CB77 305cc absolutely pristine like it just came out of the showroom in 1964 - oh and 2 owners in 53 years....well pleased !!!

absolutely beautiful, this was the first Jap bike I ever rode (wasn't mine) every time I stopped at the traffic lights I thought the engine had stopped, superb, (it would also out accelerate my 350 cc Gold Star)very sad.
