Original Barn Find 1971 Honda SL70 Survivor Mini Bike
Here we have for sale a beautiful original barn find 1971 Honda SL70 mini bike This is a wonderful survivor mini bike that is unmolested. I found this bike stashed away in an old barn way out in middle of nowhere California. This bike has been sitting idle for a very very long time. I think the license plate says it was last registered in the late 70's. I could just have a few years of use on it. I don't know the exact mileage on it because the early SL70's, ike this bike, id not have speedometers on them, hey were an option or an accessory that you could of put on the bike. The only things I have replaced were the grips, ut they are OEM Honda and match the original style perfectly. And I replaced the cables but they too match the originals. The bike is such a cool motorcycle that you just don't see in this condition. They are only original once and that is what makes this bike so neat. SL70 Hondas are pretty scarce and don't not come up for sale often like the Trail 70's and 90's do. This is actually one of my favorite bikes of my collection because you just don't see them. I like the unique and different Hondas that were produced back then! The paint is all original and untouched on the bike. The tank is in great shape with just a little fading on it from time sitting. The original warning decal is still present on the tank. The fenders, oth front and back are in great shape. The paint is pretty nice on the two and show just a little wear. The front fender has a little chip on the edge of it, n the front. The frame is original paint and has just the normal wear from your foot on it and some chips and scratches underneath it. The side covers are original and have original red paint on them, hey do have some fading on them from sun exposure. The chrome is all original on the bike and has some pitting and patina on it from sitting with dust on it for such a long time. The tires are both original to the bike but are cracked all over them. The exhaust is in pretty nice shape with just a couple little dings in it and a little pin hole under it that you can't even see from the side. The bike has the same engine as the four speed clutch Trail 70's. The clutch works great and works as it should. The engine runs great and doesn't make any funny noises or smoke. The original carburetor was rebuilt and new fuel lines were run. The original petcock was rebuilt with a new packing kit from Honda. The seat is also all original which is so hard to find on bikes. The seat is still pliable and the foam is soft. It has come apart at the seam in the back, t's very minor though. The headlight and tail light both work but I would replace the battery because I don't know how old it is. Overall this is a rare bike that is original and you just don't find them untouched and unmolested like this. This has been greatly cared for in my hands but it's time to let it go. I do NOT have a title with the bike, repeat, do NOT have title with the bike, t has been lost most likely 40 years ago when it was last registered. It was last registered in California some 40 years ago. This bike is being sold as-is because I can not guarentee anything on an old bike and I do not know the history of the maintenance done or not done on this bike. I am trying to describe the bike to the best of my ability. Please contact me with any and all questions that you might have. I only accept cash in person, oney order, r check as acceptable forms of payment. I can hold and store the bike for a month in my climate controlled garage so that the winning buyer can arrange shipping. I can possibly get a motorcycle pallet and strap the bike to it if the carrier would like it on one. Look at my other auctions for nice original Honda mini bikes. I'm cleaning out my collection! Thanks for looking!
