    Default My New Project

    Not that I don't have enough projects already, I am taking on another one. My current projects are, '78 Corvette resto-rod (big block), '53 Chevy Wagon and a '73 VW Super Beetle. I drive the Bug every once in a while to work and locally, but it is still a work in progress.

    Here is my new project: 1970 Honda Trail 70. I am still working a deal with the owner, but should close it hopefully tomorrow. There are actually 2 bikes, I would like to get both of them, but may end up with only one.... we will see. When these things were new, most of my friends had them, but my parents would not let my brothers or I have a bike, so we had go-karts. So I modified my go-kart with a chain saw engine straight shaft, no clutch, so I could blow past the trail bikes. That is what started the Hot Rod life for me.

    Here are the pics of the trail bike that I got through IM earlier today;

    I have had 3 of these little guys in my life. They're a blast when they run.

    I always wanted a little trail 70 they seem like a blast. I went and picked up a little china 70 out of the trash last year, did a little rehab on it. It's great for blasting around the neighborhood at least twice a week lol The neighbors don't like me much when I bring out the big 2 strokes BRAAAAAAAAAAP

    Nice find. I got a modified Honda Ruckus that I'm installing a "Satan motor" in (66.6cc) it's a four stroke motor.

    I have it running and take it out for rides whenever the weather is decent. I have a blast riding and exploring the fields near where I live. The second bike is a 1970 CT70H which is a four speed manual clutch. I still have a lot of work to do on that one. I hope to be riding it sometime this summer.
