1984 An Original Retro UK Honda C70-C with 3,600 Miles For Sale

FOR SALE
An original retro UK Honda C70-C Round Light model with 3,600 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
Introduced in 1958, the Honda Cub/Super Cub has been in continuous manufacture ever since and production surpassed 100 million in 2017 making it the most produced motor vehicle in history. The idea for a new 50cc motorcycle was conceived in 1956 when Honda Motor's Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa toured Germany and witnessed the popularity of mopeds. The requirement however for the motorcycle to succeed in the developing world was, primarily simplicity, and larger wheels than those of a moped in order to cope with badly surfaced roads, or indeed non-existent roads in rural regions. Another requirement of Takeo Fujisawa was that the bike could be ridden one handed whilst carrying a tray of soba noodles, siting that the vast numbers of soba noodle shops in Japan would no doubt want one as a delivery bike. The iconic and phenomenally successful Honda Cub series is widely credited for mobilising and in large part, revolutionising, the developing world.

EQUIPMENT
Pressed steel underbone frame, 12-volt electrics, capacitor discharge ignition (CDI), polyethylene leg guard/cowling, black and white long seat, rear luggage rack, 3-speed clutchless transmission, fully enclosed drivetrain, horn, primary coupled kick-starter, chrome indicator housing, two adjustable mirrors, Nippon Seiki HO-791 speedometer, odometer, turn signal switch, headlight switch, neutral indicator, rear footrests, helmet lock, side storage with toolkit.

EXTERIOR
This wonderful 1984 C70-C is the more desirable ‘round headlight’ model and this example is finished in factory original Monza Red. Having covered just 3,600 miles from new, this remarkable example has never been restored and still boasts first paint credentials, virtually unheard of. A natural aged patina is entirely forgivable and does not spoil the appearance. All metal is in remarkable shape has never been welded or repaired and the polyethylene leg guard/cowling is incredibly well-preserved with no cracks. The front mudguard displays a small thumbnail size repair. Factory decals below the seat and original stickers and warning labels will further delight originality seekers, as will the factory badges, supplying dealer cowling sticker and plastic sheath over the foot brake pedal. The fully intact black and white seat covering is also factory fitment and the original number plate remains fitted. The toolkit is present in the side locker. All switchgear, lights and instruments are fully functional. This unspoilt C70 is deliciously retro and a fitting tribute to this Honda icon.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The frame identification stamping and identity plate are correct for the a 1984 C70-C and match the vehicle documentation, as does the clearly legible engine number stamp. The 71.8cc engine develops 6bhp, enough to propel this machine to 43mph (depending on the rider’s weight!). The exhaust is a replacement piece in superb order and a very good replication of the original item. The clutchless 3-speed ‘all down’ transmission is easy to use and in perfect working order. Surprisingly nippy and a lot of fun!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 36 spoke chromium plated wheel rims are unrestored and display outer rim stampings. 2.50-17 tyres retain excellent tread and good rubber condition. Waterproof-Dustproof brakes with 110mm front and rear drums perform as they should.

HISTORY FILE
Despite many minor revisions since its launch in 1958, the Honda Cub style and ethos as a bike for the masses has remained constant, and it is no surprise that true iconic status is firmly cemented. This UK supplied C70-C example was registered new on 14th March 1984 by Bridge Street Motor Cycles in Witham, Essex and has covered just 3,600 miles from new with just three owners. The original motorcycle service booklet is present with two stamped entries from the supplying dealer. The first issue blue V5 document made out to first owner, Mr Walter Punt, is in the history folder along with some previous MOT certificates and two original Honda keys still with dealer fob attached!

This example boasts originality credentials rarely found as well as being the more desirable round headlight model. Everything about these bikes is legendary from their go anywhere ability, phenomenal reliability and even the famously successful marketing slogan, “You meet the nicest people on a Honda”, which ran from 1963 for 12 years and is still used today as a marketing case study. An excellent example of one of the most significant motor vehicles ever created.

MOT August 2020, HPI Clear.
