That one is not a 71 unless someone did a lot of parts swapping. Its either a 68 or maybe a 69 since it has the leading link front fork. It also seems kind of expensive for a bike with a split seat and no headlight....notice the electrical tape where the headlight should be.

At $92 this one is the best deal I have seen in a while even if it needs some work:

Looks like the same engine as my CRF50 pitbike, means lots of aftermarket and such.

its similiar in that both are hondas and they are similiar shape but I dont think many of the parts bolt up directly. The website www.dratv.com has a lot of parts for the honda monkey bikes and ct90's as well as other engines that can bolt up. But there are a lot of things that you can do to the 90's to make them scream.....i even saw a 4 valve head for sale on some japanese website...i think it was $2500....or about the cost of a brand new honda ct110 from australia.

Ehh.. You're a bastard for hoarding the last good bikes. I'm starting a charity would you like to donate a bike for a tax write-off?

Hey, there's an idea!

But my crate fee might be around $1200

Take your time and find a nice one. Last summer, I bought a '79 with 537 original miles that is in fantastic, original, always garaged condition. The only work it needed was to replace the old, cracked original tires. Still starts on the first kick and gets somewhere north of 100mpg. The high/low range is fantastic, I wish more bikes had that. Here it is fixed up for an adventure:

You would think that the Chinese manufacturers would take the GY6 150cc/CVT powerplant and re-create a trail bike like the CT-90. They already have clones of the small-displacement MX bikes and the CT-90 should be even easier to copy. Just think - a CVT CT-150?

The TNG Baja is a pretty cool little 150cc CVT bike.

There are CT-70 clones, and cub clones. I'd think the manual tranny or auto clutch bikes would probably sell better than a CVT edition for that particular niche of wee trailie fans...but then again, given how many people nowadays can drive a manual tranny, who knows?

The GY6 has proven to be a pretty good little engine, though.

I've seen photos of the TNG BAJA - kind of like a more reasonable priced Ruckus. Maybe a KYMCO People 150 without the bodywork? 16" wheels, forced air cooling, 150cc. All it would need is a solo seat and a cargo rack.

Has anybody swapped one of the clone Chinese motors into their Honda's? I have an SL-90 that needs a new engine (mysterious electrical problems that leave me stranded), and the quote for repairs seems to be higher than the clones that I've seen on the website listed in this thread.
But I don't know of anyone who has actually used one of those motors...
any experience anyone???

go to www.dratv.com and look at either the ct90 stuff or the "lifan" engines link and you should see details on one being swapped into a ct90 frame. I'll probably do this later this summer to one of my 90's but have to pay some bills first.

Seek and ye shall find...

How about a 1976 CT-90 with a 1980 Elite 150cc engine/drivetrain?
