1981 Honda C70

Out and About

Classic Velocity

This was what this machine was made for. A trip that was 6.5 miles each way to run an errand in town where you are in no danger of exceeding 50 mph. This was the maiden voyage since full reassembly, and I discovered a few things. First, there is not a lot of power in any gear, so you need to ride using momentum. Second, the machine is hard pressed to get above 40 mph with this pilot aboard. I swear that I went faster all the time on a Honda 50, but then I was half this weight. Third, it draws attention. College kids and old timers alike think it is kind of cool. Fourth, the rear shocks are shot. A few things to work on, but you really do meet the nicest people on a Honda.....
