1971 – $tbc US – Honda SL70 Motorsport (5 Images)


This 1971 Honda SL70 Motorsport is a dual-sport minibike that was acquired by the selling dealer in February 2020, reportedly after 48 years at the Virginia vacation home of its original owners. Power is from a 72cc four-stroke single mated to a four-speed manual transmission, and the bike is finished in yellow. Features include head- and taillights, a side stand, chrome mirrors, and drum brakes. An oil change was carried out in preparation for the sale as well as wiring repairs and replacement of spark plug. This SL70 is offered at no reserve with an owner’s manual and a clean Florida title.

The fuel tank, side covers, and fenders are finished in yellow, with the former featuring black stripe graphics. Equipment includes a black vinyl seat, a side stand, a chrome taillight and license plate bracket, and amber reflectors on the headlight.

Wire-spoke wheels with polished drum brake hubs wear knobby tires measuring 2.50-16 front and 2.75-14 rear. Suspension is from a conventional front fork and a rear swingarm mounted with dual shocks.

The single gauge features a 60-mph speedometer, a low oil pressure light, and a four-digit odometer showing less than 150 miles, a handful of which have been ridden by the selling dealer.

The 72cc four-stroke single features two valves, a single overhead camshaft, and a four-speed manual transmission. The selling dealer replaced the spark plug, carried out wiring repairs, and changed the oil in March 2020.
