      Hi kirrbby you seem to know a lot about clones. Please give me your honest opinion on my 03 jenching trail 70 buy. It has 26 original miles on it and looks like new I paid 400.00 for it someone offered me 1000.00 I’m going to keep it what I’ve read the Honda CT70 group seems to think that this was one of the better clones you’re comment please. Thx Anthony. .

        Hi Anthony.
        I really don't know much about the clone bikes, other than what I've read and seen here over the years. But, I do know that you did verry well buying that one for 400. You can get that bike up and running, then just ride it, making repairs and improvements as the need arises...same as with ANY bike.
        Welcome to the addiction. But be careful, little Honda's seem to multiply.

      Thank you kirrbby. I'm new and trying to figure out this website how to like a post and other stuff like that. How do I post something for everyone to see? An idea about an experiment for example

      Hey Kirrbby - Sorry to bother, but I wanted some wisdom from a fellow Honda lover and I see your Buddha and figured... THIS is the guy with wisdom and knowledge! Running into some financial issues.. where would you price my 1991 CT70 with 540 original miles.. and it IS like new.... ANY response and guidance - much appreciated... Thanks- Rick in PA

      Is it normal for a condenser to have continuity from the outside case to the center pole when installed and the points are closed? Mine is new but maybe I overheated it? With both coils and the points wire installed, I get continuity from the condenser case to the center of it.

        Yes it is. When the points close, it connects the points wire, that goes to the condenser, to ground.

        Thanks! You've been very helpful through this 2-year project! In a panic for an event this weekend (can’t take chances) I ordered an entire stator rebuild kit. Expensive, and likely unnecessary, but the wiring on my coils and harness pigtail were in very rough shape. Multiple bare wire spots. Likely repairable but for $45, an acceptable piece of mind. Sad thing, I now have a spare condenser, points....and coils. :)

      Hi Kirrbby, I received the eBay stuff. Thanks!
      I am wondering if you have any H K1 engines or numbers side cases? I'm looking for a 203284 or something close.
      Let me know.
      Thanks,
      George

      Kirb, I just picked up a 1970 CT70 that needs some attention and I really don't know where to start, do you recommend getting a repair manual? I was told it ran a couple years ago but it definitely looks like it has some wiring issues.
