    Came across this 1981 honda passport in edge water FL for 500.00 ran great so I had to have it. Someone turned me on to dratv and that was a very bad idea.

    1200 and at the end of the day with pictures you might get 1500 a year down the road. Nice build and as they say more smiles per miles.

    I've seen repainted C70's in gray like yours, looks great....also keeping the plastics white makes a great & balanced contrast, not mil spec style, but nice. The Lifan is fun too, beware; it will propel the bike beyond the standard C70 brakes and front suspension.

    The Lifan's with a 4 speed can go quite a bit faster than the 3 speed Passport...without some disc brake kit, or maybe a Symba Sym front wheel and brake, you'll have to adapt to that. I also thought you were doing the 140cc conversion, which I've ridden, and ideally that conversion does need better brakes than the Passport. My stock Passport brakes are so-so at best even with newer pads and adjustments.
