Ok, here we go again. A 1970 CL70 caught my eye on CL. Since it wasn't orginal paint or a concours restoration, it was an opportunity to try an engine swap and maybe some other mods, as I think of them. I usually restore to original, but this time, not so much. I got a Lifan 125cc, and with a little careful filing of the mounts, it bolted right up. I have a 6v regulator, that steps the 12v engine down, so I can use the original wiring harness. I'm going to try and straighten it out some today. A Piranha pipe is on the way from Tbolt, and I'm looking for some better rear shocks. The PO did a decent job on the paint, and I like the seat color. The original engine, 4 down with a heel shifter. The Lifan is standard 1dn,3up. 2844 miles. I'll source a new speedometer, so I can start at zero, with the new engine. The new engine bolted up.
