    Looking at a 1970 ct70

    Hello everyone... currently looking at this ct70. It's has a build date of 5/70 with a vin of 182279 on the frame and a number on the engine of 114348. I know sometimes the engine and frame # don't match. Although is it usually that far off, do you think it's the original engine and frame put together?

    The bike is not running currently and the engine does move freely. The bike also has around 6xxx miles on the odometer. No title... I'll be able to purchase it for 1k. Is that a good deal?

    Thanks!
    -Bill

    The engine number should be within 3-400 to be considered matching.

    In my area, $1000 would be the high end of fair price for that bike. It looks pretty nice, and complete. But I'd say $750 is a better high end of the price range for that one. With that said, you pay based on how badly you want it. You can't go wrong as long as you're happy with your purchase, who cares what anyone else thinks.

    Now if that was my bike, and I was considering selling it...Well that's a different story. lol I'd probably want 900-1000 to part with it too.

    That's a fair price but as Kirby said kinda on the high end. But good part is it looks complete.

    Thanks for the feedback... other issue is I think they lost the key as well. It seems like I can get a new ignition/key combo online though.

    So then it looks like a different engine was put in since it's way off

    Yes. That's too far off. Maybe 5-600 off is a stretch. No biggie tho. If you really wanted too, you could probably find a engine or engine case that's a closer match. eBay + time and patience would eventually turn one up. The forums are a really good source too.

    You can find a key code on the face of the ignition switch, then order up a matching key from one of the key dudes. Most likely it'll be easy to get one. If not, you can buy a replacement ignition right from Honda.
