Honda CL70 Brochure

The Honda CL70 was a 4-stroke street motorcycle built by Honda between 1969 and 1973. The CL designation indicated this model to be the "Scrambler" version which implied some off-road capability. (prior to actual dirt-bikes gaining popularity.) The CL series of bikes were actually street bikes with a higher rear fender, a braced handlebar, and a high-mount exhaust.

The CL70 was essentially the same motorcycle as the Honda CL50.
