Honda ATC 70 Restoration | Restored 140cc 3 Wheeler!
We restore my 1985 Honda ATC 70! I purchased this mini Moto 3 wheeler in the summer of 2020- it had been sitting for some time, the plastics were all cracked up, the original 72cc engine barely ran, and rust was popping out of the frame. We swapped a Piranha 140cc 4 speed semi automatic engine on it, completely transforming the performance of this all terrain cycle. In today's episode, we paint the frame, touch up and clear coat the original red, paint the wheels, install new wheel bearings, seals, brake shoes, and more!

Thanks for Watching!

    I think they should have done a big bar setup on it since they will be riding it. Plus the blue seat cover is correct to the 1985 model, & it’s a 4 Speed UP 😎👍

    You can buy a product called " mastic " remover at your local janitorial supply works really well and allows you just to wipe off the adhesive.. also I used to run 8" golf cart tires on my honda 110 cc 3 wheeler.. I first started using them because tires were so expensive..but then accidentally found out that all of a sudden my 3 wheeler was really 65 mph fast plus for most dirt road riding it didnt seem to effect the traction as bad as you would think ..since it had stiffer side walls it took that roll over feeling out of the equation and was a ball to do doughnuts with it was amazing how much drag was reduced after that I was sold and the local golf cart place practically gave me the tires .. it was awesome lol but you really need to make sure the brakes are up to snuff.. because now it will free wheel wen you let off the throttle instead of just slowing down ..I believe it reduced wear and tear by 75% at least on the chain and clutch oh and if you get stuck you just pick It up and scoot it over or just push it out of the mud. It doesnt weigh that much ..on the street it kept up with street bikes with twice the engine size .. i think you should give it a spin completely changes the trike into something completely different something better power slides are a blast rather than those balloon tires trying to roll under which just kills the stability ..i wish i could get my hands on another anyway have fun

    joke to pull on someone you hate take and ask them about their pans and if they have a cast iron one if they do buy another on that looks like it put a tack weld on the bottom and replace the pan in the kitchen and have it fall in half next time they pick it up

    Back in the late 70s, my dad's friend Charlie had a brand new ATC 90, and a brand new GMC Gentleman Jim (black and gold, sort of a Smokey and the Bandit TRUCK) pickup. He let me try out the ATC. I gave it too much gas, which makes the front end light and even harder to steer. I went straight into the side of the GMC. A GMC/ATC interface. Minor damage to the truck (I say minor, cuz it wasn't mine). To this day, I've never TRIED to ride another 3 wheeler.

    Not that you guys ever listen to me, but the trick with new seat covers is to leave them out in the sun for an hour or so, and they will soften up and be easier to stretch without tearing.

    Trick on decals I learned when doing vinyl on pop machines is use a soapy water in a spray bottle and then use a rubber squeegee to aid in rubbing out air bubbles..

    I remember back in the day, I had a Honda 70, along with about 7 of my school buddies my friends dad was a Machinist at air research, we jacked those 70s with stroker cranks, bored out, cams, headers over sized carb, headers. 3 speed to4. Changed the front sprocket. To top it all off put a little alcohol in the tank. Most definitely ur helmet. What else can I say scary fast on 3 wheels. Have fun with ur restoration

    @23:53 A time proven trick is to put Baby oil on some paper towel so it is soaked do this all on the Glue to be removed, let set over night. As a rule all of the glue will just wipe off. Not always but 80-90% of the time. Love your guys fun, and how good of friends you two are. Keep up the good work. Chain tensioner: You can remove the old cog from your old chain tensioner, and replace it with a new skate board wheel, they work great, and last a very long time ,and are cheap to replace.

    Sounds like just the chain links making sound when they contact the wheel.

    Put brake lights in back where now have room,headlight? Not disc brake? Put tire flat liquid to help keep air in? Put weight sticker on back of coat. Sounds like tensioner not moving with chain? Fender flares or mud flaps ?

    Yes they did an ATC 70 Christmas special, 1983, I have always wanted one, only seen one for sale in a long time and it was trashed for 1800, I think the plastics on yours were changed at some point to older stuff like an 83 or something, 85 had a blue seat

    Ok I looked through quite a few comments to see if someone already told you but I didn't see it. I use a spray bottle with water mixed with rubbing alcohol. I mix around 1 part alcohol to 3 parts water. It makes it so that you can move it around til you get it where you want. No worries about getting soap out, alcohol will dry up clear.

    I would love to see an episode where John, Ike, and friends go on like a week camping trip with friends, I think that would be awesome, brig out all there toys, go fishing, ripping, and vibing in the woods.

    • RS7JR

      They've done it before. It's how they got the idea for the bronco because the guy who owns the grave ninja was on that trip. They drive their own vehicles up a mountain and pull mini trailers with their camping equipment so they can camp on top.
