**This thread started as just my Chaly. It's now gonna be all my Hondas. Which at present is 2. So only 2 Hondas. Which isn't very many. Bit I'm dehoarding in my old age and enjoying it. So, life is funny. When I lived in Thailand, my neighbour was an old widowed lass who drove a '93 Toyota Corolla she owned from new. But hidden underneath her balcony was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. I knew about them but hadn't seen one in the flesh. My Thai skills were average to poor at that point, but when I told her how much loved it she said, 'the tyres are flat, if you can make it go you can ride it'. And so I did. It was the first bike my daughter ever got to go on. Been searching for one for a few years now and the timings never right or distance is an issue. But thanks to a friend I was made aware of this baby.. Of course, just as I was to pick it up, someone had to crash into my car, foiling my sale of the Honda Pal, therefore crushing the dreams of the elusive red machine. In come @GuyWithAviators and @Shakotom, upon hearing of my crash; they had a good lol, made fun of me and then came through in the most incredible way possible. Without those two I wouldn't have my new forever-bike. Introducing my Honda Chaly. (Pic Heavy) As seen on Facebook marketplace, she was a farm bike and has the original seat cover even! Lost her rack, part of the casing, front fender and a wee more over the years but she was a goer! Skids for the boys. @GuyWithAviators and I decided to change the oil. Decided to do a line up: V50 shocks made her scrape terribly: BUT I FIXED ALL THE PROBLEMS:
