  • Long Term owner ..Awaiting resto..My Gold CT70

    Hi all,

    Hopefully I have found the site to help me get my CT70 back on the road again.

    My dad bought this for my brother and I when we were 9 years old... ( 40 years ago..!!)

    Has had some love along its life but not a lot of use.

    A mostly original '69-70 model from memory.

    I will post pics soon but hoping someone can suggest where I might buy some original used fold down bars for it..?

    Sometime in the 70s , we fitted motocross bars in an attempt to make it a racing bike for use at Laverton..

    My other passion is old VWs , and figure the Dax will compliment those as well.

    Cheers Tony

    Hi Tony welcome!

    there is a few places you can search for the bars, classichonda50's, hondaminitrail.com will be your best bet

    sounds like you may need a top bridge, lilhonda.com may be able to help out with that one or someone may have a spare here.

    Its really great that you have your bike from younger years. there a a few guys down in melbourne too that i'm sure will be able to help out.

        Thanks for the welcome..

        Being a founding member of a splitscreen kombi forum (DSK Der Split Konnection) , I have gained some amazing knowledge and made some
        great friends with people all over Australia as a direct result of the web based forums..

        Looking forward to learning more about the ugly duckling that has been part of my life for so long.

        The hard part will be resisting the urge to splurge ,while still funding my dub collection..

        I will check out those sites for parts..

        Cheers Tony
