Freshly restored 1977 Honda CT-70 Mini Trail. Complete teardown and restoration with the professional assistance of Honda Restorations in Collinsville, k. (www.hondarestorations.com). Every part on this Honda was replaced, efurbished, r rebuilt to bring it back from a non-running farm bike to a sweet street legal mini. Fresh Oklahoma Title and tag ready to transfer to new owner.

The Honda bright orange paint was bead blasted off, hen primed, ase coated, hen shot with 2 coats of Kubota Tractor Orange Enamel, nd 3 clear coats, iving a more durable surface and higher gloss than original finish. Original Honda Silver wheels were bead blasted to bare metal, rimed, nd re-painted with a contrasting matte-black finish to give the bike a unique color combo which sets it apart. Front shocks were disassembled, ith new inner seals, nd new boots. Lower front shocks were bead blasted and retain the original Honda silver finish. ($575 in total professionally applied paint costs)

Original engine and 3 speed automatic transmission were completely disassembled and professionally rebuilt. (A $640 cost) The bike retains its original displacement. New parts are prevalent in the rebuild including all new engine electrics (ignition coil, tator, lug cap, tc.), nd repainted right side cover and cylinder head. The left side cover was missing and replaced with new parts. Engine is fueled by a new (not rebuilt) CHP carb, ew fuel lines, ew air cleaner, nd new metal gas tank. New throttle cable, ew drive sprocket /chain, ew kick starter, nd a re-chromed original shifter lever complement the engine rebuild. There are virtually no miles on the rebuild – it was bench tested and then put in the bike where there have been less than 5 miles put on it to assure it all works.

Little expense was spared during this year long restoration. Although not concours perfect, his little Honda does turn heads and was rebuilt with the thought that she would retain the 1977 flavor, ut not be burdened by the need and additional cost to make it a 100% restoration. Anyone who desires a 100% concours restoration, his is NOT the bike you want and is NOT represented as such. It is an excellent restoration with receipts for several thousands of dollars in parts/labor and hundreds of hours of my own time to get her in this condition.
