Barn Find Jackpot
 
Not sure if I can do this, but It is way easier then uploading all these to photobucket and then linking. them.

Bought this Honda Trail 90 a month ago Gave it a bath. Frank Bott, the best motorcycle photographer on the planet asked to photograph it and here is the result. The Tittle says 1969 Can anyone shed some light on that?

For parts try ohiocycle.com or dratv.com.There should be a year sticker on the frame by the steering head.When I was a kid I delivered news papers on a ct90.

Check the Vin # against this and it should tell you what year it is.

I'm "inheriting" one of these from my dad to go along with the '73 CB350 that I inherited from my Grandpa.

It's a 1974 with 1,274 miles and has been sitting in his garage for about 30-years since it last ran. In original, excellent condtion. The truck arrives with in the week of November 12.

LOL Mine kicked over one kick on the gas is was put away with in 1970. It appears to be a late 1969.

That is an excellent barn find
 
Nice find!
I picked up a 1971 in February and brought it back to service I bought a Harbor Frieght bike hauler for my receiver hitch for the back of my van. I have been from Ohio, to Washington state, Oregon, and Utah and my home state of Ohio.

Pretty sure that's NOT a 1969. The 1969 had a one-year-only airbox that does not have the snorkel tube going up to the rear rack. Really hard to find one in good condition if you're into restoring CT90s and you run into a '69 with a missing airbox.

Here is a picture of a true '69: http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/dratv_2236_83014770
Telescoping forks, plastic cover on frame downtube, rear rack, but NO snorkel tube from the airbox going up to the rack.

It's also my understanding that titling year vs. VIN wasn't required in the US until 1974, so a dealer would title a bike in the year it was sold, not (necessarily) the year it was built. The VIN is your best indicator of build date.

The best I can tell is it is a late model 1969. It shares some things with the 1970 model, but has a correct frame number for 1969. In researching this I've come across other 69's with a few of the newer parts, and some have newer yet parts. It seems that Honda made running changes to the bike, rather then a true model year change.

Thanks for your insight. Who know it may turn out to be the piece in the puzzle that changes everything.
