Default CT70 Intro

My name is Dan. Im from Toledo, OH. I have been lurking around for awhile and decided to post an intro so that I can ask noob questions. I'm sure I will take my share of a beating with some questions, but I can take it.

I have a 1993 Miata with 187,000 miles on it with a rebuilt engine that is supposedly 7,000 miles old. The car is full of rust and crappy paint. I bought it to replace a boring 2001 automatic neon (wifes old car that I had been driving). I drive it everyday in the sun, rain, snow, hail, tornado, whatever.

More of a background on me. I have been building a 1931 Model A Sedan for about 7 years. Started with a body and frame. I can manage NA vehicles, but forced induction is new. I also enjoy rebuilding old Honda minibikes. On to some pictures...

hey there, love the old minis

I have an 89 Honda Z50 that was my first bike. I would really like to restore it but I don't know where to start. is eBay the best resource for NOS parts or is there somewhere else I should try? thanks.

I need tires really really bad but they use a totally different wheel/tire combo than the newer XRs do

Ebay is ok sometimes. The site I usually go to the most is dratv.com. You can also try re-mx.com. Other good sites include tboltusa.com, chpusa.net, hondatrailbikes.com, daxdodo.com, firepowerminis.net.

Some good forums are planetminis.com and lilhonda.com

Let me know if you ever have questions with these bikes. Hope this has helped.
