Wow. Looks like nice workmanship.
And encouraging progress, it would have been dis-heartening finding all that rust as work started..

Nice project. True, in Vietnam, you have to make your own parts with little tools you have for car and motorcycle parts..... :D .

minhrau,

That is very good resto work. It's nice to see the Honda in working order again.

BTW, what was it in the tank you used to "cook" the engine part? Is it some local traditional recipe?

It will be good if you could update us here, as the photos would keep us high in motivation. :tu:

Thanks KenH,

That's the way we make aluminium brighten, we make it in my friend's workshop where he make aluminium clothes-hanger, he said it's like aluminium coater, it's mixture of acide nitric and some metal in "cook" tank.

It's difficult to meet a honda N360 on the ho chi minh city road now, you're very lucky to take these picture.

Wow fantasic job there. doing great. Did you ever try Ebay to see if you can find any parts? Even in the US its till dificult to find parts for older hondas.
