Additional photos of this Honda C70 Passport are available here for your perusal.

A variant of the Super Cub (the best-selling motor vehicle of all time), the Honda C70 Passport was a simple step-through motorcycle that brought two-wheeled joy to millions of riders. It was sold under different names in the US and UK as the former already had a Piper Super Cub airplane and the latter already had the Triumph Super Cub motorcycle.

The Super Cub originally started as a 50 in 1960, and it grew to a 70 (actually 72cc) in 1970. The Passport name debuted in the US in 1980, by which point Honda was claiming 6.4 horsepower from the air-cooled single that was partnered with a 3-speed automatic transmission. The 1981 model utilized points ignition and a 6V electrical system.

The seller of this example (VIN: JH2DA0101BS111264) acquired it in San Francisco and used it as a commuter for about 15 years.

The odometer shows 12,993 miles.

This Passport just received a carb clean, fuel tank clean, and new battery. It runs well and the kick starter works great, however the electric start does not work. The seller is aging out of motorcycling and is letting go of his collection.

The seller has misplaced the title – our White Glove service can help the next owner with the title. We also have a registration renewal notice which shows that the registration expired in September of 2020.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
Crack in the white bodywork.

Paint on left side of handlebar.

General wear on finishes.
