My First Motorcycle


Okay, some will say itís a mini-bike, but it IS street legal, and tagged as such.


Itís a 1973 Honda Trail CT-70. My father bought it brand new in í73, and while it has had some storage hiatuses, it has been kept well, and is in good reliable running order.


It has a 3-speed manual transmission, with an automatic clutch. It has about 5600 original miles on it, and it gets about 90 mpg.


It tops out (with my large girth on it) at about 48 mph. While I am keeping everything I take off the bike for restoration purposes, Iím thinking about buying a 90cc upgrade kit, complete with racing head/cam, tuned pipe, and bigger carb.


Stay tunedÖIll update as I move forward.
