Something borrowed, something Bluecat

Last autumn we bought a building. This ’50s service station turned alternator workshop was definitely rough around the edges.

It’s a Honda CB250, eh. Part two.

In part one, Jeff and I had buttoned up the engine and carbs for a cool old canadian Honda CB250 — a bike with a romantic history. There was a lot left to do. The following Sunday afternoon, Jeff and I met down at the shop to get the CB250 looking more like a complete …
