Laugh 1971 Honda C70 Barn Find

Advrider newbie....first post. Found a 1971 C70 sitting in a customers garage. Had 948 miles on it, been sitting 25 years.

Managed to make a deal with him.

New battery, tires, and fuel lines, oil change, and I'm off to the races. Every light, blinker, starter, etc. works perfectly. Slight miss at 42-45 mph, if speedo is accurate. Cruises along at 40 perfectly. Had original tires when I picked it up. He bought the bike from the dealer new in 75. Odometer is now at 1008 miles.

Picked up a lot of good advice from this forum.

Thanks for all the help.

Pics to follow.

Wow I hate you.....

Nice find : )

I've been wanting one of these to do a 100 cc fun run at a local bike rally.

Most people trailer or haul their bikes there. I want to ride the 80 miles there on my 100 cc bike just cause.

Roger that. A sailing (and biking) friend from NC uses a similar forum name. Welcome aboard.
