I just finished restoring this Honda SL70 motosport.  It is identical to the one I had when I was 12 years old!  I painted it using the Preval paint system.

Picked up this bike as a parts bike in Tulsa, OK and then decided to go ahead and get it up and running again.  It is an all original 1972 Honda SL70.  All I did was rebuild the engine and recover the seat.  :)

It took me about 10 years, but I found one of every bike I grew up riding.  Some of them were fairly nice, but most of them did not run and were piles of junk.  I overhauled the engines and restored many of them from the frame up! It was a great activity and if you're one of those guys that says, "I sure wish I had my old bike from when I was a kid!" , my advice for you is to go find one (or more)!  This has been a VERY fun project and I'm pretty good at turning a wrench and painting now!
