1981 Honda C70

It Goes and It Stops

Classic Velocity


The Holidays provided some quality wrenching time, and the C70 motor is back together. Valve timing is spot on, and ignition timing set. It fired on the second kick ! And, it idles perfectly. A few throttle adjustments, some inline fuel filters, and the machine is back in business. A trip to a local Japanese salvage yard produces a hard to find fairing, with a few blemishes and a crack along one seam, but it matches the rest of the machine. A new seat cover was found online. It looks almost too nice, but I'll live. This thing now looks and runs like the rider that it is. A few electrical gremlins to sort out yet, and still no electric start, but real progress.
