Honda Ct70 yea baby!

Hello guys, I thought I would post up some pics of my little project I have going on.

This is one of many Ct70's I have and I took a different route with this one.

I have shoe horned a 150cc engine into that little frame.

Holy torque batman! This thing cooks.

1 down 3 up shifting and you can pull the front up in 3rd and the top speed is about 60-65 mph. Way fast on that little bike.

I put on that awesome exhaust a few days ago and it sounds like current motocross 4stroke thumper.

I have a lot of wire work to do for all the light and I want to put on some sticky street tires too.

There is also a modern fork and disk brake setup for the front that I'm thinking about ordering.

Suicide bars have to go also... Going with something much lower and wider..

Ha ha thanks!

I like that ruby red one in that pic..

Don't see as many of the green ones as the red or blue.

I have 3 reds, 2blue and 2 golds .

I live in a small town and its fun to round up the family and fire up 5 of them (Only 5 run)
and cruise around town. People go bonkers when they see us on these little gems.

Nice, I have been looking for a nice monkey...

I have seen pics of guys putting the same 150cc into the Monkey frame... Crazy!



Here is a pic of the front end I'm thinking about... Looks like something we would use on our Rc's but it is way small.

Also this custom bike is not mine but kinda the same direction I am going with..

My good friend had one growing up in the late 70's early 80's ... thought his was orange, though.

Although ... I preferred slidin' the heck out of their ATC 70's!! Dangerous little suckers ... your foot slips off the peg, the back tire grabs your foot and yanks you off, and you've just run your own damn self over!!!

No doubt! Growing up on a blueberry farm my dad had a fleet of Honda big red three wheelers and those things worked great for farm use but I will tell ya not good for joy rides as a kid.
As you said if your foot went down as the wheeler tipped the back tire would grab your shoe and pull you under.. many many times I got rode over...

Heck even now dad still has a few Red on the farm and I take a spin every now and again only to get rode over yet again.

The big reds would float on water too. I used to cross the pond until I tipped my dads nicest red over... all you could see was half the tires above the water...
I got the belt for that one.

Here I thought I was one of a kind for doing something "Brave" like that....mine tipped just yards from the bank and filled the carbs. Damn it!

LOL. 150cc in one of these... sounds like fun!

When I was 15, my cousin in Portugal had one of these which we'd sent him in the back of a truck from the UK and he'd managed to register as a 50cc, being it was so small n'all. He was a few years older than me and I was easily influenced & so I have a few fond memories of juvenile irresponsibility:

One night we'd gone to his high school graduation and drinking games had ensued. Both of us were well beyond any limit had there been one in those days. Portugal was still not even close to being a part of the EU, let alone having laws on drinking age. I don't think the Police even had breathalizer bags back then and at 4am they'd long since made themselves scarce for the night.

So there we were riding home on wet cobbled roads.... As we went over a well worn steel bridge whose tarmac had all been worn away and recently rained on, we fell off at slow speed. The chain came off so we put it back on and continued on our way with only the dim 6v headlight to guide our shaky path.... About 500 metres further along Pedro managed to ride us into the biggest pothole the poor bike had ever seen. Suspension bottomed out and the back wheel rim was badly dented. We almost fell off again, but made it home in one piece.

The next morning my uncle asked us, "Did you two fall off the bike last night & were you drinking?" Our silence was evidently quite loud or perhaps it was my ripped jeans which gave it away.

We took the bike to their beach house and beat the back wheel rim straight. For good measure I decided to clean the carb out too. As we finished - Pedro took it for a ride to check it was better & it seemed good as he flew down the road. But then as he turned a corner I realised with horror I'd not assembled the carb correctly - it was jammed open and as a consequence he'd fallen off - again!

Thanks for the pics Smoker. I'd completely forgotten about this cool little bike. That was some 30 years ago!

There's major Honda Monkey tuning parts here in Japan. People fit all sorts of funky mods to them, all the way to upside down front forks and brembo calipers. Sometimes I see convoys of tricked-out monkies out on rides. Cool toys!
