Introduced in 1958, Honda's classic 50cc C100 'step-thru' gave millions of people the world over their first taste of two-wheeled mobility. A host of derivative models of various capacities followed, the 72cc C70 arriving in 1969. Better-built, more powerful and more reliable than the majority of contemporary mopeds, and endowed with handling superior to that of the small-wheeled scooter, the Honda 'step-thru' family set new sales records for motorcycle production and continues to be immensely popular today. Finished in yellow with white leg shields, this C70 appears to have been unused for some time and will require careful re-commissioning, at the very least, before returning to the road. The machine comes with old-style Swansea V5 and is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
