Luc looks good,

How long does a complete resto usually take you.
My monkey should be done in a record 4-6 yrs.

Scott,

We need about 4 weeks to complete a bike from scratch. It all depends on how long it takes to get our parts back from rechroming . Sandblasting, welding, painting can be done in a week. We have most of the parts on stock to make the bikes complete and original. It takes about 2 days to make an engine look new again ( complete dismanteling, ultrasonic cleaning, sandblasting, replacing the kick spindle, new gaskets , oil seals...)
We use only original Honda parts , new if still available or NOS.

Notice the long frontfenders on the white cz100 models...

Hi Luc

I am also restoring a cz, mine looks similar to your painted pictures right now. Although my headlight is different, there is a bracket in your photo that I don't recognise. It's the one close to the seat and the black footrest bar, it's essentially a loop with attachments. I was curious what it was?

Thanks

Tim

Hello Tim,

That bracket is the speedometerbracket, it is mounted behind the steering handlebar. It was originaly mounted on the early models which had no speedometer in the lighthousing. See picture.

Thanks Luc

Makes perfect sense now

I understand why you process so much yourselves, the delay on turn around for minor parts can be very time consuming.thanks for sharing your pictures, it's great to see the level of work you put into the bikes
