Thumb Hondo's 1982 Honda CT110 Rebuild Thread

I just picked up a somewhat neglected 1982 Honda Trail 110 (CT110) from a neighbor for $300.

It ran but has been sitting outside in the elements for some years now. Total miles, 2,128.4-

Here are a few pics-

It will need -

A new ignition switch-

A right mirror mount & mirror-

Seat covers (passenger seat not shown)-

and this laundry list of replacements & maintenance items-

- new battery
- oil flush & change
- inspect & rebuild brakes if necessary
- soak, lube & replace drive chain (if necessary)
- get new helmet lock or key the old one
- clean & rebuild the carb (or replace)
- replace the air filter element
- clean everything
- possible paint the bike & replace all decals
- inspect & lube the swingarm bearings
- replace the fork seals & fork oil

This will be a slower build than the KLX450R, so standby for updates!

Thats a tidy looking CT, I picked up a $20 CT90 a month ago but it has been a farm hack so is in nowhere near the condition yours is in, but with some fresh fuel and an oil change it's running perfectly!
It's now in a few hundred pieces getting repainted and all the seals etc being refreshed, total budget is $200 to get it back to being "road legal"..... as long as the police don't take a close look!
They are a fun little bike, mine is being assigned to be the beach bike for getting groceries and going fishing at our beach house.
Orange...cause it makes me look like I know what I'm doing!

dad had one that he logged nearly 30,000 miles on

& he never got much more than 30 miles from the house/RV

have fun w/ your quest
