1982 Honda C70 Passport from United States of America
Love it! And I wish Honda still imported C70's to U.S
Electronic ignition part failed at 13K miles - not normal.
Main engine seal split 1/4" from having been stored for 12 years, necessitated replacement + top end rebuild (19K miles).
Clutch had to be replaced shortly after engine rebuild.
Suspension + neck & swing arm bearings worn, making handling a bit "mushy" after 30K+ miles - normal.
This and previous C70's have all been exceptionally reliable, start right up, rarely fail to get you there.
Easy to drive, comfortable for short errands and commutes.
Easy to carry cargo with front and rear racks.
Has plenty of power for level surfaces, not quite enough on long grades.
Easy to maintain and repair, no special skills needed for all but serious engine, etc. issues.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
