Nice one Rich.

So now you own  two models with the rare type recessed key ignition switches   :)

Good news, that was a quick find and just in time for a winter  project!
I always liked the CB175's, a big looking bike for its size and sporty looking.

Love those Rich, had a CD as a kid and although I have no real desire to get one of those, the CB is  a lovely package. Sure it will be posted on here restored to imaculate show room  condition within weeks of you getting it. Well done and good luck!
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....
