Hi, I also have a 1982 Honda C70 Passport, and the keys are specific to the ignition and steering lock. The ignition switch should have a number on it. If you call a Honda dealer and tell them the year, model, and number on the front of the ignition, they will be able to get the key for you. A good lock smith should be able to do the same.

Hey, if you take the seat off and take the top of the gas tank off (two screws, and the whole tank will come out), you can access the main power converters inside and under where the fuel tank was.

Ps: make sure to take the gas out or clamp the lines; also pull them off the carb first.

Now can you tell me how many turns out it takes with the two screws on the carb to get it running smoothly?

Checking if 1980 C70 motor scooter has a fuse box other than a main line fuse?

Your local lock smith should be able to make you one for under 20 bucks. Same thing happened to me; I popped off the leg shield and took the ignition to him; had a key in 2 days.

I am restoring a 1981 Honda Passport and I can't find a gas tank anywhere. Any clues on where I should look or who I can call?

To the man that lost his key. I just bought a 82 model Passport with no key. I took the fork lock off & went to the local locksmith. He made a key, & it fits the ignition & helmet lock.

My Honda C70 1982 will do 55mph standard.

Your bike is gorgeous. I had several over the years, and I'm just crazy about them. I used to deal in bikes (buy & sell) so I had many different bikes over the years.

My opinion of the Honda Passport 70cc is that it's the finest scooter on the face of the Earth. I ride mine every day.

I was talking to a motorcycle dealer the other day, and told him I had one and I ride it daily. He got mad at me for riding it, he said this was a collectors item and I'm not supposed to ride it.

I'm still going to ride it every day.

Does anyone know where I can get a space key made for my 1982 Honda Passport motorcycle?

Change the tooth size on the counter shaft or rear sprocket.

I am from the US, now living in Thailand. There are lots of C70 Honda Passports and all parts desired for low prices. Email me if I can help.

My math re: your time and speed indicate how much distance you covered. Pray tell: where did you find a formal, instrumented drag strip that had clocked timing for over 6 miles?

Hi there, looking for some advice.

I lost the key to my 1981 Honda C70 Passport in a move. The locksmith quoted me at $180 to replace it, which seems bonkers. I'm in the Boston area. Anyone have a sense for what it should cost, or what I could do to bring the cost down? I have a very thorough Clymer maintenance manual, but it doesn't touch on this.

I buy my Honda keys from eBay, like this guy for example - https://www.ebay.com/str/brisespinoz0

Send him the make, model, and number stamped into your ignition and he'll make you keys for cheap... there are a few people on Ebay offering the same service, and usually for under $20 with shipping...
