No Reserve: 1970 Honda CT70 Trail

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1970 Honda CT70 Trail was acquired by the seller about 12 years ago from a local owner, who had used it to travel up and down his long driveway to get the mail. A refurbishment was then conducted by the seller, including a color change to metallic green and powder coating the wheels and engine side covers. The 72cc 4-stroke engine was also rebuilt, and the 3-speed transmission received a new clutch pack. The odometer now shows just under 3k miles, and the bike is being offered at no reserve out of Mansfield, Texas on a bill of sale. The frame was a faded blue color when the seller acquired the bike. It was subsequently stripped and refinished in its current metallic green. Note the Honda information labels affixed to either side of the upper frame. The seat upholstery was redone using black vinyl with white Honda lettering on the back. The wheels were powder coated silver and currently wear a set of Bridgestone 4.00-10 tires. A walk-around video can be viewed above. Approximately 2,941 miles are shown on the factory Nippon Seiki odometer. The seller states that the horn button is missing, and the folding twist-lock handlebars can be seen in gallery photos. The 72cc 4-stroke single was rebuilt by the seller using a stock diameter piston, as well as new rings and valves. The 3-speed transmission was fitted with a new clutch pack during the engine rebuild. The engine side covers were also powder coated silver. Photos of the included body decals and warning labels can be seen in the gallery along with detailed shots of the body and chrome trim. A video of the bike running can be viewed below.
