    honda cl70 project bike

    this is my 1971 honda cl70 project, the plan for this bike is ruturning it to being fully functional and running strong. you can tell by the pic shown that the tank is pretty banged up on one side and it is missing the tail light. the electrical is not working also.

    cafe seat

    I have a killer cafe seat for this that looks brand new. Mount and go operation with Honda Logo on the back. I also have a set of complete wheels in Excellent condition with like new rubber on them and a near perfect tank.

    I even have a set of SL70 forks that would lower it a tad and be better performing.

    If you want any of this, let me know.

    got a buch of parts in for the cl70. changed the tank to one without rust and major dents. switched the emblems over from my old tank to the new one because they were in better shape. all electronics have been disconnected as i get the wireing sorted out. wireing a ground wire into the new stator so that can go in. handlebar is torn apart and the switches are getting rewired. I will hopefully have it up and running this coming week.

    old tank


    new tank

    not sure he is willing to part it out, but thanks for letting me know

    today I ordered new coils, condensor and points which is hopefully enough to get it up and running. Also got a bunch of wireing connectors to clean up the harness where there are a bunch of coroded connectors.

    I tried reverse threading it the other day and that did not work, i think the threads on the shaft that holds on the flywheel are messed up....is there a way to fix this? if not im concerned this may have to be a part out
