[Honda-C70] Re: rear shock dimensions


The ones you're looking at would most likely fit.
Look up shocks for a Honda Z50 they are the same or about the same size as the earlier C70 Passports

I bought the red 265mm Kitaco shocks from http://www.hondaminitrail.com/z50.html which are about the same price you are looking at and seem a bit higher quality. They took a few weeks to come because they had to be special ordered but definitely worth it and MUCH better than the original shocks on my '80 Passport

Oh, and FYI the rubber dampers might not be the same size. If I remember correctly the dampers to fit around the bolt up at the seat were a larger diameter than the bottom. So for the shocks I bought the bottom was fine, but I had to replace the top damper with the damper from the original C70 shock. Took a little work to get it in there but not too complicated once I figured it out...

Good luck
I would say a rear shock replacement is well worth it. Especially if you're riding with passengers every so often
