Honda SL70 #36
Orange - White
is my next semi-SL70 project.
I wanted to build a hot-rod bike, but sticking to the
period correct parts and stay away from the Chinese copy
big-inch engines and instead, go with a punched out 70cc
original engine. The engine displaces 88cc, has a big cam, ported head and I have a couple of
different exhaust pipes from back in the day. A 20mm
carburetor will feed the bigger engine.
is painted an original Honda SL color, but not one
that was on the SL70's. It is Mars Orange
with a White sail stripe, which was used only on the SL100
K1. The bike will have no lights
and will be somewhat of a 'stripper'.
holes in the rear fender have been filled as it will not
have a license plate / taillight assembly attached.
one of my aftermarket pipes on finished in Chrome.
Actually runs better than with the Torque Engineering pipe.
Check out the pictures with the tank and side covers on the
bike. Notice the side cover badges........the SL70's
merely had the blue/red decal, but these are some custom
made badges in the style of the larger SL's. I had one
of the side cover decals blown up larger and used on the
front number plate.
