    New to me ST70 low pipe

    Here in England, early ST70's & 50's had low pipes rather than the up and over type but, they were the 3 speed semi-auto box. If you want a comparison, they had the same exhaust as the Honda Chaly.

    New Guy Honda CT70 Build

    Thanks man!! Now I've got a full view, I think I'm gonna buck the trend and say without. I think 'with' makes it look too bunched up, cluttered and a bit too top heavy at the front with all the things piled up there. Just my opinion but, hey, who am I ? Your the one who has to like...

    ST90 frame rust - is it junk?

    From the single picture you've provided, the bits that are rusty seem perfectly salvagable. Just get it sandblasted, then you can see the real extent of the old tin worm and make a proper assessment. Its amazing what sandblasting and a MIG welder can do ;). I think if it were mine, i'd give...

    New Guy Honda CT70 Build

    As much as I like your ingenuity :-) I must say that if ever you were to have an accident on your bike with the tank mounted like that, it runs the risk of being a potential petrol bomb! If your fuel lines got severed during a crash and there was a spark - man, I wouldn't like to think ...

    New Guy Honda CT70 Build

    You could always just fit only genuine honda parts (including the engine) throughout the build and have a trouble free experience cos everything would fit correctly. You'd have no stress, you wouldn't have to do any cutting, shimming or modding and you'd still have a cool bike......... sounds...

    Tips on restoring pegs and kickstand

    I'd use gloss black but, it does have a tendancy to show up any imperfections in prep work or the refinishing :cautious:

    Another Cl70

    Like the bike !! Never seen one of those before - looks like an SS50 crossed with a CB-125 (bikes we had/have over here in England from around 1973-79).
