Default My new ride! 1970 ct70

Well new to me.. itís old and a piece of shit.. as I get time Iíll throw parts on it and hopefully have it running in a couple months. Either way I thought these things were cool growing up and they fit an adult surprisingly well.

Man, that 70 brings back memories. I had a red one, neighbor had one that color, guy across the sreet had a gold one. We rode the hell out of them. We had a place behind our elementary school, it had trails, creeks, hills and a pond. Good times!

Thatís sort of that plan.. Iím not gonna paint the frame as its in pretty good shape for 50 years old, but i am gonna sandblast and paint the wheels and use an acid bath to remove the rust off of what chrome I can.. havenít decided if Iím just gonna fix the motor on here or put a 125 lifan with manual clutch.. might try the Vermont registration/Texas title trick and see if it works.. seems to be cheaper than the bonded process. I want it to be street legal as I plan to make it my neighborhood warrior

We had a gold one. My friend opened the points up on it and it made a bit more power; at least until the points burned up. My dad wasn't too happy. That was my first attempt at hot rodding.

Bought a Chinese 125 dirt bike for $100, I’m going to use the 125 motor off of it and swap into the ct70, it’s a direct bolt in but I gotta figure out how to wire in all the 12v stuff

For the money, the Chinese stuff is pretty decent. Crappy steel and bolts aways coming loose but 5he little motors do run good with routine maintenance done. If you aren't worried about the lights in the 70 working, just move the Chinese harness, cool, cdi, kill switch etc over to the 70 and leave as much as the 70 oem stuff intact and tie it up out of the way.

Well I started on the gold one.. i had to pull the stator off of the blue one to get spark to it and found I had very low compression.. I ordered a new piston and cylinder off eBay along with 64915 things it needed.. does anyone know where to get a 4.00-10 tire locally? The dude that I bought it from said it had good compression but he was full of shit.. but considering how cheap parts are and how easy these things are to work on, I couldnít help but laugh.. but check out these sweet homemade gaskets!

lol @ the gasket. Now you know where the low compression was coming from.

Also how much did you pay for the blue one and the gold one if you don't mind posting it?

Blue 400 gold 600

When Iím done with the gold one Iíll probably have about 11-1200 total in it plus what I stole off the blue one to get it there.. trying to keep it as original-ish as possible..I have countless hours in it already between researching and wrenching.. Iím probably gonna ask 1600 for it whenever Iím done.. thatís under what most people are asking.. once it sells, the blue one will be very custom and will basically be stripped down to frame and get 12Ē wheels, inverted forks, upgraded rear shocks, disc brakes, 12v conversion with led lighting and a 190cc 4spd motor..

Something kinda like this but a little less bling bling and the patina blue frame
which is better fallout 3 or new vegas

Hereís a vid of the 190cc.. it has looks more like I want

I would think it would bring more than that, my buddy has a fully restored one and he paid $3k, thing is fucking cherry.
Next time I'm over there, I'll snap a pic.
