This is a 1968 Honda CL175 "Sloper" -quite rare, as it's the first and only year that the CL175 had a forward inclined motor. It is a 5 speed, twin cylinder, starts easy and runs well. It was sitting for several years and I've given it a fresh engine oil change, new fork seals/oil, fork boots, carbs cleaned out, all indicator bulbs replaced, as well as the battery. The milage is 2935. Some Bellingham history - still has "Northwest Cycle Co." stickers on the sidecovers. Everything works as it should.
As for cosmetics, it's what you'd expect from an original, almost 60 year old - a few dings and scrapes here and there, but overall it's very good. The pipes and heat shield are excellent, most other chrome is very good. The paint , seat and from what I can tell, almost everything else is original. It also has the stock tool kit in the tool compartment.(tankbag not original)
The title has been lost over the years, sold with a bill of sale. If interested in checking it out, please email or call.(before 8:00 p.m.) thanks, John
