I hear ya. Looks great. You could just paint the cover that looks rusty and ride the thing and enjoy it.

Looks good Will. The frame dosnt need paint anyway. I agree, just put some paint on the cover and be done.

Hay Scott here is some pictures of the stock air filter assembly, & how it goes together, the metal edge of the filter goes in where the clamp is ..

Hey Will, thanks for the pics. I think i am going to try and rig up an air filter, try to find on close to that size (less expensive) for the mean time, i rigged up this to use.

You don't have to buy another filter , strip the pleated paper filter from the metal base and replace it with UNI foam filter material . You can RTV the foam to the metal base , lightly oil it ( K&N oil) and reinstall .

i just picked up a good spare motor & coil & carb & a few other little parts for $40.00 .. the best part was getting a good flywheel cover that i needed, the motor turns over just a quick look & so far it needs a kick start shaft, i think it will be worth rebuilding this for a spare..

Hey all, I am the guy with the other NC CL70.
It was great to meet Will and talk bikes, etc.

My CL had belonged to a co-worker, and he had not done much with it, so we made a swap. My intention was to rebuild, not restore, with the goal being a ride suitable for everyday commuting (~6 miles). I stripped the frame down totally except the forks, then washed out the accumulated grime of 40 years. The new engine is a 125cc LIFAN. I replaced the controls and wired it enough to have a headlight and tail light. It is now ride-able and even started on the first kick the last time. I have a complete harness for those CT70 clones. It is not plug and play with the controls so it will take some time to get that sorted out.

Overall I am pretty happy with the result.

Cheers

OH, here's a photo.
The dent in the tank looks worse in the photo than it does in the flesh.
