Here’s a quick, impromptu post about the Mr.’s rad find today. He was out doing his usual estate sale run when a 1981 Honda Passport caught the corner of his eye. He circled the block to inquire with the owner and, before long, he was circling back with it!
This C70 is in near mint condition with only 804 original miles. We’re hoping to salvage the tires, but that’s probably a crap shoot. It also needs fluids, a new battery, spark plugs and a good cleaning as it hasn’t been driven since 1998.
As soon as we got home the husband and the bike disappeared – he just couldn’t wait to tinker! We don’t have any parts on hand, so that meant scrubbing, which he did with vim and vigor.
The gas tank will have to be cleaned out, but once all these parts are in place, we’re taking this puppy for a joy ride!
Found this fab ad. Nothin’ like an ’80’s yuppie marketing a moped.
