Original Barn Find 1974 Honda Trail 70
Here we have for sale a very cool original barn find 1974 Honda Trail 70 motorcycle with just over 2,000 original miles. I found this bike tucked away in an old barn in the middle of nowhere California where it had been sitting for many many years. It's been physically off of the road for a very long time but it was stored indoors to help preserve the originality of the bike. That is what makes this bike so special is that it's basically all original and untouched. It has a newer rear tire and that's it. The original metallic orange metallic paint is in great shape. The paint has a very nice shine to it and look great in the sun. The metallic shines nice and that's what makes these early Hondas better looking because of the metallic paints that were offered in these years. There is some minor scratches here and there on the bike, nd on the chain guard on the left side of the bike. The chrome on the bike is all original and in good shape for being untouched. The rear fender is in great shape and the front fender is nice but it does have a little bend on the left side edge on it. The headlight ears are straight and same as the handlebars. They all appear to be original and unmolested. The controls on the bike are all original to it. The headlight is in nice shape with a little scrape on the chrome bezel. The engine is in original condition and looks great. There is little wear on the side covers from the low 2,000 miles that are on the bike. The seat is even original but does have a couple of little tears near the edge of the rear of the seat pan. The exhaust is straight and there is no rust through like Hondas typically have on their exhaust. The chrome shield is in great shape too. Overall the chrome is presentable, t doesn't look new, ut have just a slight bit of patina that only time could create on it. The decals are all original on the bike and look good. The main decals have a little wear on them, t's very minor though. The wheels on the bike are original and have original paint on them. They do have a bit of patina on them from sitting for so long. The wheels give the bike some character and show that this bike has some age to it and is in fact original. The front tire is original but it has some cracking in it. The rear tire is a replacement and has good tread on it. The bike has just over 2,000 miles on it which is low low for a bike of this age. The bike runs good and doesn't smoke. The carburetor was rebuilt and I put all new gas lines on it. The transmission shifts good. All in all, his is a great original bike that you just don't find in this condition everyday. They are only original once!!! I have an old California title that will go with the bike. I have done my best to describe the bike to the best of my ability but given that it is an old bike and I don't have all the history on it, have to sell the bike as-is with no guarentees given or implied. The bike is not perfect but since it's original, hat is what gives it such beauty. It even comes with the original Honda keys! I can store the bike at my house for up to a month so that shipping arrangements can be made. I can possibly get a motorcycle pallet and strap the bike to it if the winning buyers shipping company wants it on one. I only accept cash in person, heck or money order as acceptable forms of payment. Please contact me with any and all questions that you might have. My phone number is 775-830-6760.
