New keys

To anyone that has only one key for their 90, Ace hardware can make 2 for less than $10! I had 2 made today and both work! Same size, cut etc.. Just a heads up

Any chance you can get the brand and model number of the blank they used? It'd be helpful info if the local Ace can't match it up and needs to order a blank. Thanks !

Any advice on the CT200's? I grew up on a 1969 ct90 and have been wanting to restore one for kicks. I ran across a 1965 ct200 at a fair price. It's complete and in good condition. It even had the extra chain segment for the overlay sprocket still factory packed in the side cover.

I really don't care about the hi/Lo trans on the later CT's. Any issue with the iron head ct200 motor or parts availability that should prevent me from buying this one?

Check out dratv.com for parts availability and info, links...
I'm not 100% positive but I believe that has the pushrod motor, the front leading
Link suspension isn't fun off-road but is stable and a nice ride on road.
The motor and carb will be harder to get parts for but not too bad, the motor is a
Good strong design but fresh clean oil is important.(duh)
If it's a nice complete bike and the price is good I'd say go for it.
Some items are harder to find and cost more so research if needed but there are
No major faults to the design... And the rear sprockets will be a conversion maker
To those that have never seen one! Most of all have fun with it

My first bike at age 14. I rode it all over the countryside. I gave it to my sister. She took it to college and later sold it to someone else. It ran and ran and ran. Not as fast as the later ones, but what a climber!

Funny...at age 14 so many of us thought the CT90 or similar could do anything we could dream...

At 20...would'nt get caught dead on one...

Then later...we sit around dreaming of finding a nice one in a barn!

Thanks. I've ordered blanks online before. Was hoping STROMVADER could hook us up with the local Ace info tho.

For online purchase, this guy is awesome: http://www.motorcyclekeys.com/blanks2.html

That CT200 is what got me off my butt and working summers. I found out I could achieve what I wanted by hard work. It was 2 years old, cost $175. I got a dollar an hour back then. I went all over the county on that thing, next to RR tracks, over trestles, down dirt roads, logging roads. what a time.
