Restoring my old Honda (CB77E)

Post by Smoof » Sat May 17, 2008 9:16 am

I just recently found this site and would like to see who might be able to help me with finding good used (or new) parts for my old bike. I have a old SuperHawk (or Scrambler) [Frame CB77 1031862; Engine CB77E 1031849] and would like to see about restoring this bike again.

I originally got the bike when I was 16. It was packed away behind a friends garage and had a locked up motor and generally in poor condition. I completely disassembled the bike, rebuilt the motor, and had the frame and some parts sand blasted and repainted them. I rode it for some time after rebuilding it the first time, only to finally store it away in my father's garage back in the early 90's and has lived there until just recently.

I moved it to my place this past winter and have been looking at it in my garage ever since. I just recently pulled it out and replaced all the gas lines and dumped some gas in it to see if it would fire up again. Much to my surprise, it fired after the third kick and sprang to life. It was nice to hear it run again.

Now I look at it, and my perspective has changed since my age of 16. I will need some further items to make it more acceptable to ride on the road again.

Does anyone have recommendations on finding parts and accessories and a reasonable price?

My father also has a 64 Honda dream that we also got running the same day as I fired my bike up. He is in the same situation in trying to find parts. If anyone could help, we would greatly appreciate the assistance!!

Thanks in advance!

Could you describe what you are trying to find. It may be here somewhere but without more information it's a little tough.

Smoof, Welcome to the 305 forum. Your bike is a superhawk(not a scrambler). There are a number of sources for parts for older Hondas. I like E-Bay,but be carefull things and sellers arn't always what they are represented to be. Also take some time to look thru this forum and you will find alot of places mentioned as a source for parts. If you can be more specific of your needs there may be people on the forum that have things to sell. Good Luck, Kustommusic

kustommusic and rgtalyor2,

After reviewing many of the forums yesterday, I had thought myself that my bike really was a superhawk and not a scrambler. When I picked it up originally, it did have a set of pipes on it like I have saw in many of the old scrambler photos. I naturally just thought it was a scrambler. As for the parts, I currently would like to see about picking up a rebuild kit for my gas tank valve assembly; a new seat (or see about recovering my existing); maybe points and condenser (or that solid state application I saw somewhere yesterday); rubber boot for my left hand carburetor to air cleaner; metal cover for my right hand air filter; and a foot peg and/or assembly for my right side (passenger foot peg was broken off at the mounting base). This is a start of the items that I would like to find to get it ride-able again. I certainly could ride it as is right now, I have improvised for the items that I don't have, and I would just like to have everything more complete.

As for past research, I have looked into E-Bay, I do hold some reservations about some of the items I reviewed. I also looked over many of the forums after posting mine yesterday. I did find some places to look into further and am planning on doing that in the weeks to come.

Thank you very much for your help and direction.
