I'm doing some renovation on my 1971 CT70 K0 so I'll use this thread to post questions as they come up. But first, here is the story behind my CT70. I didn't have a CT70 when I was a kid. When I was young my parents were way too frugal to ever buy me a minibike, much less a Honda. But I got hooked on motorcycles anyway and when I turned 16 I bought my first one, a 1972 CB350. Over the next 10 years I owned two other Hondas, a CX500 and then a VF750 Sabre. I rode a total of over 60,000 miles on those three bikes. In 1987 I met my late wife, and her parents had bought her older brother a 1971 CT70 when he was a kid. But by 1987 he had long ago lost interest in it. I found the CT70 in her parents garage covered with greasy dirt and cobwebs and in need of some minor repairs. When I expressed interest in it her father gave it to me and signed over the title. I cleaned it up, got it running, and rode it occasionally for a few years. Fast forward to 2021: My CT70 had now been sitting in my shed for decades and was still 100% original with only 1284 miles on the odometer, but had not been started in at least 15 years. In the 34 years that I owned it the only thing I had done to the engine was change the oil and the spark plug. It needed a carb rebuild years ago and I had removed the carb but unfortunately during a move the original carb got lost. I've been thinking about renovating the CT70 for a long time now but first I wanted to see if I could at least get it running. So last month I finally got around to installing an aftermarket carb. With the new carb, a new air filter, and fresh oil, it started right up! Runs great although a little rough at high rpm so I still need to sort that out. It is definitely overdue for a tune up. So now that it runs, I have started on the renovation work. This isn't going to be a concours level restoration job, I just want it to run well and look good. I have already replaced the seat, throttle assembly, grips, hi-beam switch, and a few rusted chrome parts. Right now I'm working on replacing tires, brakes, wheel bearings, rear shocks, chain, and sprockets. Here are a few pics . . .
