Vintage motorbikes - I found 2 in my shed!

So...I dunno if any of you Jemsiters enjoy 2 wheeled vehicles (I'm a sports car guy myself!) but I just pulled 2 vintage Honda motorbikes out of my shed in my back yard.

Since I just finished restoring and breaking in my awesome Subaru Impreza, I guess i'll be able to spend the rest of summer playing with this pair of Hondas! Both are very early 1970's, one is a XL70 (street and trail) and the other is a Z50 mini bike!!! I figure i'll fix up the XL70 first and use it as a scooter or something for saving gas around town. The Z50 will be a fun little parking lot bike.

I'll put some pics up when I can.

There is a 1971 Honda something in our shed that belonged to my girlfriends uncle. Should dig it out one day and see what it is exactly.
