Classified Moto’s Honda CT70 Junior Minibike may be the butt of jokes in the Classified Moto’s offices, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love the little rascal. They openly admit that while Junior wasn’t “the trickiest build we’ve done from a technical point of view,” the bike has still had a great effect on the team. They even go so far as to say that it is “the minibike that changed our lives.”
Junior started out as a 1991 Honda CT70. That particular model came with a 72cc OHC single cylinder engine and a three speed transmission with automatic clutch. The reported top speed for the CT70 was 70 km/h. Classified Moto took the CT70 and gave it their classic treatment. They removed the front forks and replaced them with custom inverted forks that had been anodized in gold. The front brakes were also custom. The rear shocks were replaced with RFY adjustable piggybacks. The exhaust system was modified and included a stainless muffler. The seat is a custom stand-off frame, upholstered by Van Herten Outerwear.
While Junior may be peculiar to Classified Moto, the overwhelming demand they’ve received for bikes like this to be made available to the public has led the company to consider doing a limited run of the bike. The cost will be above that of an average minibike, but who wants average anyway?
