Up for no reserve auction is this complete and straight 4- speed CT70H. This is the last year of the H-model manual clutch, he HK1. This bike has original Candy Ruby Red paint and is complete. I’ve added a few reproduction parts like the seat and handlebars that needed to be replaced when I got it.

The engine does not smoke and runs strong. It shifts well in all gears. I know the engine has been out of the bike with a previous owner. I believe this engine has less than the indicated 5,202 miles based on the way it runs but I really have no way of knowing that for sure. It’s one of the faster and better pulling stock H-models I’ve ridden.

There are a few nice things about it:

· The ignition key fits the helmet lock. I have a factory NOS cut key and the bike comes with the original as a spare.

· It has a clear AZ title. This bike can be titled and registered easily in any state.

· It is straight and does not have any frame issues, orrosion or dents outside of the one on the left upper fork ear.

· It came from central California and does not have any pitting or yellowing on the chrome

· It’s complete and can be ridden as-is or restored.

A few things to know about it before you bid:

· The only thing that does not work is the headlight. Everything else does; horn, ail light, rake light, eutral light etc.

· The right side of the foot rest is slightly bent down and the foot peg is a little lower than it should be.

· The carburetor is a factory Honda CT70 K1 carburetor, owever, t is a 533A version. This is correct for the 3-speed K1 CT70. The H-model should have a 594A. They are jetted the same and in my experience run the same, ut I want the buyer to know this since the carb’s look identical and it’s hard to see the numbers in the pictures. This could matter to someone looking for a 100-point restore. This 533A has been rebuilt and is a good running carburetor that does not leak fuel.

· There is a welded fix in the exhaust pipe where the chrome heat shield mounts. This is a very common rust spot for CT70’s. When a previous owner cut out the small section of pipe, hey cut the mount that secures to the upper engine bolt. You can see that it’s missing in the pictures. They did a good job on the fix.

Clear AZ title


This bike came from central California. I consider that a good thing since it was not near the ocean and therefore does not have corrosion. I bought it early this year and was planning a complete restore. I’m selling it now because I have a few other CT70 projects I want to finish. It was in running condition when I got it. I’ve done a few things to make it a good rider. I have replaced the fuel lines, ebuilt the carburetor, dded a new aftermarket seat, HP handlebars, nd new grips, ebuilt throttle assembly, eplaced any non-working lights, he kick-shaft seal and I’m sure a few other small things. The pictures of inside the frame are from when I replaced the fuel lines. I’ve ridden it about 40 miles in the last six months only around neighborhoods.

I will work with the buyer on shipping. Thanks for looking and contact me via email response to this auction with any questions.
