Harbord Cycle

Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about Harbord Cycle on Ossington? I want to take my new Honda there and really find out exactly what it needs and how much it's going to run me to properly restore it. The reason I want to go there is it's really close to my house, but I don't know anything about them. I really want to do a proper job on the Honda, since I'm so freaking excited about it, so I'd like to actually take it to a shop for once instead of just taking it apart myself and putting it back together wrong! Or if anyone knows where else I should take it? The bike is in super rough shape but it is totally worth putting some dough into, or I think so anyway. It'll be a great ride around town even if it isn't a moped:) I'd also like to get it painted once it's in good working order, so if anyone has ideas let me know!

    Sorry , don't know Harbord Cycle. Is that a cub ? 90 cc ? Can't think of anywhere to take it. Ask Marshall if he will work on it.

    Is that the 3-speed automatic, Linds? If so, that was the bike that really got me back into mopeds, as in: "Remember that guy in the 60s who had a little red Honda scooter with the white splash guards."
    Nice.

    Hows my Torrot look? Nice little motorcycle you got there Lindsay. What you need now is a parts bike to help that one. Have you gone to the Expressly Mopeds sight and asked around ther for any help. Lots of Honda fanatics hanging there.

    WoW! I am blown away by your new bike! I guess now that your trading up in the world, it will be out with the RCMP,and onto the Wild Cub Riders, or some such sillyness. Great Bike!
