Beautiful Candy Sapphire Blue 1969 Honda CT-70 3 Speed Vin# CT70-109271 Mileage 1381 Up for your consideration is the rare and very sought after 1969 Honda CT-70 3 speed. This is a beautifully restored Candy Sapphire Blue 3 speed automatic. Runs great and looks even better. Bike has been restored, but in tasteful fashion. There are many original parts that are in good shape that were left on this restored bike. I will do my best to give a complete and thorough description. Please look at all the pictures I have provided and ask any questions you might have before placing a bid. The bike starts right up drives straight and shifts smoothly. The horn, high and low beam, brake light, and speedo all work as intended. The chrome is in great shape for its age and is exceptionally clean. The fenders and engine guard are the original chrome and were polished back to their current state. Although the chrome is not perfect it shows very well. I just couldn’t justify re-chroming such nice original parts. I did polish the triple clamp, points cover and cam chain cover with Mothers polish to clean them up. The seat cover is new and the seat pan had no cracks and only needed painting. The cables are all original and in nice condition and function as intended. You will also receive 2 keys. Now a few more details……the paint, decals and new tires and inner tubes were done at Trail-Buddy in Zeeland, Michigan in December 2014. The paint is flawless and is the same as the original color. The Nitto tires (that have minimal sidewall cracking) that came off the bike will be included in this sale. There are many new parts that are original Honda OEM to make this 1969 look like the day it was built. Every attempt was made to keep this bike just like it was when purchased new, just freshened with paint, decals and fresh wiring harness. The speedometer is original and the only thing replaced were a couple of burned out bulbs and a new seal between the unit and the headlight bucket. A new Honda OEM wiring harness and ignition switch with two keys was installed to repair the original wiring that was worn and a sticky ignition that only had one key. The original loose bearings in the front fork were removed and replaced with a sealed set by Trail-Buddy after it was painted. The original rear shock cover tubes were repainted along with the chain guard. I liked the chrome chain cover and installed it, but the newly painted sapphire blue chain guard will come with purchase. The handle bars and knobs are original, just a little polish to bring out the luster. All new gas supply lines were installed and the carburetor rebuilt including the fuel filter screen. A new OEM air filter canister with chrome covers were installed. I installed an aftermarket billet kick stand, but I will also include the original kick stand. This bike also comes with the very nice rear rack. The pictures detail the current condition of the bike. The motor has a fresh tune-up including a new spark plug and spark plug wires. The oil was just changed using Quaker State 10W-30. Once you look at all the photos, feel free to ask any questions. It is available for inspection prior to auction end. This bike has been owned by me for several years. I bought it from a collector in Washington state with a bill of sale. It was a bike I always wanted since I was a kid. I am moving and just don’t have room for it anymore. I will provide the buyer with a bill of sale. Overall I think this bike will make any collector proud. Happy Bidding! NOTE:The photo of the right side was taken prior to the side decal being installed. The decal is present in other right side photos. In addition, the engine number on this bike is #CT70E-105351. It is a rare thing to ever see an actual number matching bike, this one is unusual since the engine number is lower than the frame. The collector I bought this from told me the original owner stated that engine had a problem and the dealer had replaced the motor at no charge under warranty. It is still a 1969 motor on this early production number bike (check Honda50.com to verify range of both the frame and engine numbers). I am trying to fully disclosure everything I know about this bike so the winning bidder will have no surprises.I have pictures of the original Silver Tag that was on the bike before it was painted. Unfortunately, the tag was destroyed in the paint stripping process. An identical reproduction tag was installed, but again, it is not the original.
