Default Restoring a 1967 CD125 Honda

Hi, my name is Greg, located in Winnipeg. I just picked up another vintage bike and I was hoping there are memembers of the forum that can assist me with locating some parts.
1967 Honda CD125.... I need to replace the exhaust as well as replacing the tank (that is if the Krem repair does not work). These are the major items.

Default Cd125

Thanks Pepper. I have pretty well got the bike finished. The tank is a little rough, couple of small dints...petina, as it's refered to. I lined the tank with Caswels instead of Krem. It took a couple of weeks to remove the rust, used the battery charger and washing soda method.

It had the bike out last fall for a number of short trips, only problem I am having, the battery dies when the lights are on... so once I locate the selenium rectifier on the bike I will replace it, must be hidden up in the frame.

Parts have been relatively easy to find on Ebay.

Here is a photo of the finished product. It's on display next week at the World of Wheels in Winnipeg along side my other bike.

You are welcome... It takes time to find the contacts, but once you have the network in place... Things go well. Apparently there is a CD125 in Brandon MB, which I plan to check out this summer. Maybe a good parts bike.
