I took the trail140 for her first bit of trail riding yesterday. Such a beautiful day, I couldn't pass up the chance. I didn't go too far off the beaten path before turning around, but it sure was fun. I still need to do some carb tuning, otherwise she did great.



Later that afternoon I lost all charge in my battery while on a ride through Nashua, NH. I don't think I had my rectifier hooked up correctly, so the lights just sucked the charge from her. Luckily I installed a switch that negates the need for a battery to run the ignition.
I got her re-wired and she's putting out a steady 8-12v dc from idle to mid throttle. Hopefully my battery will take the charge.

The 140 engine does make it fun.

Reading this made me push out one of my CT 110s and put it up on the lift to get running. They are a fun fun bike. Enjoyed your build. I would like to find a yellow 90 as they are just cool

This site (http://www.dratv.com/index.html) may be worth your time looking at. They have compiled a lot of little parts that may come in handy.

I've only bought ATC parts from them and have had good service.

Cool build. And like was said earlier, every Honda Trail bike around here goes for stupid money if it can roll.

I've ridden one these before, very fun. It may be the best modern successor to the Trail 90/110

Great write up. Exactly what I want to do. I grew up on a 69 ct90 and really want to find a basket case for a nice retro rebuild.
