I am digging your forum here. My first post. Hello all. I have been wanting to get a Honda CT70 for a while. I found one at a good price and bought it right before Christmas. Partial restoration. It runs pretty good. Its a 1971 Ko I believe. The guy I bought it from told me all it needed was a battery and the electric would work. I should have known better. A new battery charged up, but nothing in the way of accessories work. It does run, and the key turns it off. No lights or horn. I wasn't getting a charging voltage, so I got a new rectifier. I am measuring about 7.6 volts at idle now, so I think it is charging. I got a-hold of a schematic. It looks to me like everything goes through the key switch. So maybe its time to pull all that out and start looking for voltage there. I think it pushes in, after the tank and all are removed. Is there something that holds it in on the inside of the frame? The other thing I thought about is testing the lights and horn with a 6 volt supply (battery) to see if they are good. Any thoughts or suggestions? I need a new kick start seal, as oil is dripping. I want to change the seat and wheel rims, as the previous owner has them orange, likely to improve visibility, but I'd like to keep it original. Its a lot of fun to cruise around the yard in, with an occasional trip down the dirt road where I got it up to like 38 mph. (3 speed auto). I want to get all the electric stuff working and safe before I buy insurance and tag it, but I am concerned about where to drive it as I don't want to get creamed on a hi-way due to going too slow. Maybe just cruising on some trails is a better plan.
