Yes, gentlemen. One and the same! Produced by Honda from 1969 to 1984. Then they sold all the machine stuff and other companies have been making them since as “pit” bikes. The super classic no one acknowledges. sigh The one in my garage is the Riviera metallic blue. Some color as the one I rode when I was 9.
I have taken off the damaged parts and have the new engine and tranny.

Welcome, i'm fairly new here myself and enjoying it a bunch! I got started riding when my dad brought home three mini bikes (from California to Montana, one for each of us boys) packed into a Ford Model A with a rumble seat! Never forget that day, I was about 5 years old.
Eventually he bought a couple old Bultaco's and we all rode those to death. Then my brother handed me down his Indian 70/4, which by the way could stomp my buddies Yamaha 80 and Kawasaki 90, only my other friends Honda XR75 could keep up :). Man if you didn't have callus's on your hands, you would after riding that bike! I then owned a 1975 Honda Elsinore 125 until I got into street riding with a brand new 1981 Yamaha XJ 650 Midnight Maxim. I actually rode that bike from the Flathead Valley in Montana to Provo Utah at 17yrs old. Then crashed it at 18, learning one of life's valuable lessons (you know the kind, grow up or die).
I didn't own a bike after that for about 20 years until I bought a 1989 Suzuki Intruder 1400 that I rode for a couple years and then went without again until last year when I bought my current ride, Candy-0, (2006 Shadow Spirit 750) I love her and will never let her go. Already told my wife, when we move out of Alaska that bike is the first thing loaded in the trailer, lol!
