This could help you...
Like I said earlier in the thread, you might consider cutting a notch into the brake pedal itself in order to clear the pegs. I had to do that for my build and also had to drill a new hole for the brake pedal spring. Just something to consider. The bending technique didn’t work out like I had hoped it would when I gave it a try.
I found a brake rod from a CB100 that is 17 5/8" long and $15 shipped, NOS. That will fix that part. Notching the brake pedal is something I'll look into as well.
Any updates on the project? Love the color choice... Hope it's OK but it inspired me to completely break down my 140 swapped Z50 and shoot it in plum crazy purple!
I ordered a Mikuni VM26 carb and now my throttle and cable don't work.
Also trying to get a luggage rack that fits with the kicked up rear fender and tail light. The Trail Buddy version looks like it will work with the fabrication of one small bracket.
I'm not sure why that could be.. Please keep us updated. Just a little bump in the road. You're a smart guy, I'm sure you will figure it out just fine.
Made big progress on the CT70 today. I want to dress up some wiring, purely for aesthetics, and I need a fitting for my breather filter/hose. But I heard it run today!
I ordered some pilot jets and I need to tune it a bit. I think it's rich as it bogs badly under throttle. But I'm 99% there now!
Nice work! Another classic Honda ready for fun!

I think I have the carb/jetting figured out on the CT70. I uncapped the bleed/injection port and screwed IN on the mixture screw. It acted like it was rich, but the plug didn't agree with me.
Talked to Vince at T-Bolt and he said what I was describing was common and is actually LEAN on the pilot circuit.
Starts much easier now and revs throughout the range. I see wheelies in my future! (And hopefully no more scabs or scars).
Sounds a lot more powerful than the stock motor! How fast do you think it will go?
Are you going to be able to get it plated so you can ride it on the street?
I have a title and see no reason I can't plate it.
It's geared for about 65 mph. Feels pretty peppy around the neighborhood.
that thing is fuckin sweet!
Adventuring further and further from home. This thing doesn't have an odometer or speedometer, and it's still a fresh-ish build, so I'm still a little skittish about getting farther away from home than I want to push it!
Rode around the back roads near my house for twenty minutes or so. I swear, it needs a 5th gear. Or different sprocket ratios. It's pulling HARD and going plenty, plenty fast and still feels like it has more in it.
I need to find a GPS speedo app for my phone and hook up my RAM mount.
Absolute incredible job on this! In the process of building a resto mod. 108 race head kit going in it. Gotta ask, where did you get the "Trail 140" Sticker?! And the extended swingarm?
I love it! Glad to see that you are having a good time. For the money, these are real bargains for a fun little motor! Remember when I said I was going to steal your idea for the paint color on my 140 swap? Not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but here is my Z50 with 140 swap.
Swingarm was either eBay or CHP. The decals are also available on eBay. They make them in various displacement. The shield style stickers on the sides are also available but I didn't know that until I put the stock ones on.
