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.




nearest shell gas station with car wash

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.
