I’ve got just over 2k miles on the bike now since I go cruising every single day. Cheap therapy.

My future projects and efforts are going to be entirely focused on my first restoration jobs. I rode a mini bike for the first time almost 30years ago when I used to sneak my dads gold CT70 trail bike out. The bike has sat for all that time. My dad bought a another blue CT70 that’s motor doesn’t roll over for parts. I know my dad dreamed of us riding them together but it just never came to be….., yet. My dad said I could have them. I bought a beater van and ramp so I can collect parts and transport bikes now. My dad is sure the gold one can be up and running but I’m not going to give up on either. I am planning full restoration of both. Both bikes are 100% original. I am sure I will be asking questions galore. I was a small engine mechanic so I have a good understanding but I am completely new to bikes. I’m going to do full rebuilds on both engines in hopes that I can bring them both back to life. My end goal is to be able to go riding with my dad on the two Honda CT70’s. I just hope the blue bikes frame doesn’t have to much rot. I know it has spent many years out side under a tarp. 😢. We have a ton of small engine junk yards that I plan on raiding hard as soon as I get the bikes to my shop.
Sorry so winded, I am quite passionate about this endeavor and can’t contain my enthusiasm. I LOVE working on anything that burns fuel. These CT70s mean quite a bit to me because I know how much they mean to my father.
I’ve already shared a dream and I look forward to sharing thoughts, ideas and advice in the future.
