    Hi Derek, if you want a nice smooth matte finish don't sandblast. Soda blasting gives a much more original finish. Baking soda is cheap and if you have a good air compressor go to Princess auto and get a small blasting gun. Work outside.

    Sorry I didn't see this message Dennis.   That is absolutely not a bad idea.

    Derek,

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Honda Cubs. I have restored a number of Cubs from the C100 to the CM91. Regarding the spoke/rim sets from Thailand, they are a decent quality with the only negative being that the manufacturer stamps their info into the side of the rim before chroming. The chrome is good and the sets lace up fine to the stock hubs (I always polish up or paint hubs while everything is apart). I get most of my Thailand supplies from Vintage Avenue (store on ebay). Be aware that some of the C65 parts listed don't always fit the earlier model which we got in Canada. Shipping is pricey, so best to make up a full order to save on shipping cost.

    Good luck with your restoration. Photo attached of the C65 I restored a few years ago.

    Help, I have a mid 60s CM91 engine with 3 speed semi automatic transmission. It shifts into neutral and first gear fine but wont go into 2nd or third gear. Any thoughts? Thanks. Norm
