Honda C70

C70 Passport was the elder brother of the Honda Super Cub, with more power and the same cheap economical ride and reliability. It was introduced in the USA, Canada, Asia, and Vietnam in 1970; the first models were called C70 but in 1980 the C70 Passport was introduced.

It had a 72 cc air-cooled single overhead cam engine, a semi-automatic 3-speed gearbox, and enough horse power to pull this bike to a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). First models had 6 v electrics; in 1982, 12 v electrics and CDI ignition were introduced to further improve the performance of the engine. All models have a full-enclosed drive chain for less maintenance.
