I had a Honda Ascot 500 thumper for years, but a few weeks ago, I gave it to one of my brothers. The bike runs, but needs stuff like tires, a battery and probably a starter motor rebuild.

He's been having fun with it and is doing a quick and dirty 30 day workover on it. You can see his blog ~HERE~ (https://sites.google.com/site/30daycaferacerproject/) (and if you have a Facebook account, you can click on the Facebook link on the blog-site to see a lot more photos)

Pretty good. There's no exact goal and I'm sure he'll keep at it after 30 days, but he sort of wants to have a big push during the first 30 days. He's fixed a gunky carb, painted all the fiberglass, partly-built a monoposto seat plus tuned it up and changed the oil.
