Post Pictures of your CT90 / CT110

The true battle scooter. If Armageddon were approaching this is the bike I would take. Will take you anywhere using 60 octane gas and vegetable oil while returning 100 mpg. I just got my 78 back and cleaned up for some summer fun. I love these bikes.

My first bike was a 1966 CT90. Leading link front fork and overlay low range sprocket. First year of the overhead cam. I put 10,000 miles in one year on that sucker.

I want a 110 dual range now Yellow please...

Photo of a pair of 98s

Here's a photo of a pair of 1998s that I bought earlier this summer. Both under 80 km and came with a pile of spares. In fact the bikes themselves were the seller's spare bikes, which he had never needed.

In 1970 I bought a new CT90 then later traded it for a bigger bike. Bought a couple used ones in 87 and have kept them around. Put new Lifan 110 engines on both this spring.

Here's my daughter riding the nice one a few weeks ago:

Here's the CT90 Rat Bike that I use to run around town. Forks, wheel, extra tank are from a XR100.

I've never met your girlfriend or seen a picture of her, but I would ride your CT70 more then I ride her too. -Jason

ps, I will have one of these CT's one day. As soon as I get a garage.

I just purchased a 1984 CT110 and I can't wait to get my hot little hands on it. I've loved riding the CT90's that I've got and I expect even more from the 110. What great, hard-working durable bikes these are. They are the Toyota Land Cruisers of Battle Scooters!

I just inherited a 1968 Honda Trailmaster 90 from my grandfather who recently passed away. Can't wait to get it running and take my first real adventure after lurking here for so long!

1968 Trail 90 (CT/90)
Owned for several years, but never bonded with it.

Too Cantankerous for Girlfriend to learn on.

Downsides: No Blinkers, Upside-Down Shift Pattern, Hard Seat, Short travel Suspension.

Upside: sold for $100 more than i paid for it.

Too cantankerous for your girlfriend...

This is the easiest bike for beginners to learn on, stick it in 2nd gear and let them putz up and down the driveway at 12 mph. There's no manual clutch and the twist range on the throttle is much larger than a 1/4 turn throttle grip.

What can i say?

You get spoiled riding a Honda Elite.

If we lived on a farm instead of the city, i would not have sold it.
