    Just saw Honda is bringing back some of the oldies.

    The red one in the pic at the beginning of the article is identical to the one I had.

    Default Parts arriving.

    Gentlemen,

    The first of a boatload of new parts have arrived for this project. When finished I will have invested many multiples of this bikes monetary value! Just like most of my other projects.

    Donít throw any usable parts away. Many people are still hunting used parts on eBay.

    Great story Chip. Brings back memories.

    Some of my own were when I was 12 with my late 1960ís mini trail. Like Captain Americaís classic - the rear suspension was the seat. I used to drive it endlessly and for years. Sometimes the simplest of things are the most fun Iíve often thought of buying another one except with proper rear suspension.

    Good luck with the project brother.

    Default Parts arriving from all over.

    Gentlemen,

    This project would be a lot harder without the internet. The majority of what I need is still available from Honda but a lot of key components are not. I found what appears to be the only new seat on the planet but the graphics arenít quite right as itís a 1999 seat and the bike is a 1996. NOS new Honda fork down tubes were a great find as well as a few other items. The engine and transmission need some attention before I start on cosmetic stuff. This is like building a model airplane when I was a kid.

    My good friend had the z50, while I had a CT 70.

    This project looks like a great ride for a future grandson or gal.
