So, here is the latest addition to the fleet. I just purchased a '1994 Honda PC800 that is in desperate need of at least a serious cosmetic restoration. Hopefully when I get the skin off, it will not be too bad underneath. Otherwise it may turn into $ 1200. worth of parts for my 98 PC800 ;) The photos do not look too bad other than the paint scheme however looks can be deceiving. It has a few cracked/broken body panels including some of the fairing pieces, damaged taillight lens. The meter cover, handlebar covers etc are painted black to match the body paint. I plan on working on it slowly over the next year and restore it to like new condition. I expect I will then be selling my Ural and purchasing a suitable sidecar to install on this. Having no experience in this area, I expect I will be reaching out for some help as I go along. Might be a bit slow getting started as I do not have a heated shop to work in this winter. I'd like to paint it in the silver paint scheme that I've seen on some of the models sold in Japan. Here are a few pictures of the bike when I brought it home last week. I will add more as I strip it down and start to fix it up.
