I already updated Ron Brown with a posting.
I got the Honda C70 Passport running today. I thought I had a stuck valve or bad rings because compression readings seemed low (50-75lbs psi). I found out I was not cranking the throttle open when I took the readings. So compression was actually 120-140 cold.
Once I determined compression was OK and i didn't have a stuck valve or bad rings, I did the usual, drained and flushed the tank and replaced with fresh gas. Cleaned the carb and air filter, cleaned and gapped the plug. After about ten kicks it fired up. Now that it has been started after stitting for 2 years, it starts first kick. It runs great and top ends at about 50 mph.
Man am I glad i didn't have to tear into that engine and incur the time and expense. Now i can spend the money on a decent paint job (this is the Evil Kanivel paint job bike).
All is right with the world, Yee Haw!
Thanks to all that responded to my questions.
