Additional photos of this Honda XL70 are available here for your perusal.

After Honda saw the immediate commercial success of their XL250 dual sport, they expanded the XL lineup. The smallest was the XL70, which was introduced in 1974.

That first year, it was available in one color: Candy Topaz Orange.

The name came from the 72cc overhead cam single cylinder engine, which was paired with a 4-speed transmission and a manual clutch. Peak output was roughly 5 horsepower.

This example is VIN: XL70-1000026.

The odometer shows 947 miles.

Per the seller, “the bike was bought new at Thousand Oaks Honda in Thousand Oaks, California. The owner purchased for his son, who rode it minimally. It was last registered in 1989 until I purchased it last week. I updated the tag but did not affix the sticker as I won’t be riding it.”

It is an astonishingly well preserved original bike. It starts on the first kick. It has an aftermarket exhaust on it, but that was done long ago so I am leaving it all as is. It is serial #26!
