    6 years ago, I bought my great uncle's CT70 from him before he passed away. I thought it would be fun if the first motorcycle my daughters drove happened to be the very first my brother and I ever drove. In the 80's, my uncle used to bring the CT70 to family reunions at the farm, and all the kids would take turns riding.

    I just changed the oil, started her up and drove around the driveway. My girls haven't been super interested in it, but haven't green lighted selling it. I think it's all original, and I have all the turn signals in a box from when I had a mechanic remove them and go over the bike after I bought it. I have new Honda fork boots on the way but I'm leery of doing much work to this, so I'm wondering if it's worth more if I don't touch anything. Muffler has some pin holes in it, and I've considered replacing that too.

    My uncle never registered the bike after buying it in 77. I have the GA title that was signed over to him, the Georgia tag, and bill of sale from him to me. Is that adequate for getting a tag in Virginia or elsewhere? I know the market is pretty good for these bikes if they can be made street legal. Anyone know if I have all the pieces needed for someone to tag this?

    Wow that thing has a ton of dust on it.lol.
    Looks to me everything you need is there. Guard those headlight ears. Nice ones are getting impossible to find.

    Been in a hanger for 6 years, so 6 years of dust. Ridden maybe 10 times during that time. I'd appreciate any feedback on whether I should replace the pipe due to pin holes. My girls claim they're not done with it, but I don't want to muck up any potential collectability.

    The pipe looks original. You could replace it with aftermarket if money is an issue. Hang on to the original if your worried about collectibility. The headlight ears are what stands out. From what I see of the right one it is in great condition and you won’t find any anytime soon. The bike is a nice survivor. Enjoy it.

    Thanks, I'll keep that option in mind. I had no issue finding OEM fork boots but a new OEM pipe might not exist. The factory heat shields are selling for the cost a Chinese pipe on ebay LOL. A wrecked OEM pipe is over $100.

    Geat shape, definitely get the kids on it and pass on the fun. I'm from Georgia and was curious what town was on the title.
