just wanted to say hello

Post by Bike Rider » Nov 28th, '18, 18:55

Hi all I am Ted allias Bike Rider, as of 1st DecI will have been refurbishing a 1988 Honda C90 which purchased in pieces as it seemed like a good idea at the time and a good project to work on as a therapy to help myself get over a few health issues, it has not been easy as I have NOT had bikes for many a year with my last ones being a AJS, Matchless, Ariel, Triumph, James and not forgetting my Three Wheeled Frisky with the 198cc Villiers Engine and now own a Mk3 Mazda MX5. I live near Towcester and found SWB Forum on the Internet which to be honest I am hoping you will be able to help me complete my project which is almost complete, I have joined all the colour coded wires together inside the Headlamp and have one BLACK WIRE with a Male connection bullet end, any ides as I have three Electric drawings that claim to be for C90s but DO NOT share the same colours as mine which has both an Electric Start and Kick Start.
Cheers Ted
