10th Birthday

I bought this Honda CB200 a couple years ago for my Daughter.  The bike wasn't running when I picked it up, but I thought it would be a fun project bike and I could most certainly finish it before she was big enough to ride it.  Maisie had other ideas concerning the repair schedule and she made sure that I was aware of the importance of speeding up the process.  My daughter turned ten on October 24th, and for the week before her birthday I tore into the bike; rebuilt the carbs, replaced the battery, found and replaced the headlight, etc.  It was definitely worth the effort.  Seeing the look on her face when the bike was brought to life is something I'll never forget.  There are a couple of issues yet to deal with... but for the time being, I have happy ten year old.
