A Tiddler Joins the Ranks

Like I need another project but... ever since the I went to the Harvest Classic, I've really wanted to pick up a tiddler to do the 100CC Fun Run.

I found this guy on CraigsList and was able to save it from the previous owner before he parted much out on sleaze-Bay.

1972 Honda CL70 with 656 original miles! 

It needs some work but that's to be expected. The PO said it wouldn't start and from the looks of it, somebody was monkeying with the wiring. The wire in the battery compartment looks like a total bird's nest so that will need to be inspected. I'll also need to buy new rubber bits, chain, and probably cables.

Fortunately the only things he sold off of it before I got there were the badges on the frame and the turn signals. Both of those should be fairly easy to find.

All in all, I am super excited about the deal and can't wait for next year's HC and especially the Fun Run!
