1966 Honda CM-91

I resurrected my grandfather's red CM-91 last summer after sitting for about 27 years. It can push about 40mph on flat roads but has a pretty tough time on our Vermont hills. It's a 6 volt system so bulbs and such can be a little hard to find. People seem to like seeing it out on the road.

I just sold a 1981 I had been riding for five years. Great machine, the only reason I sold it was to upgrade to a 2010 Symba. Symba is really passport with 100 ccs and thirty year newer technologe. I couldn't be happier with the trade.

just found out the hard way not to run the bike with no battery
I wondered why the headlight high and low died one after another, and why the rear lamp was super bright then decided to die, and all my gauge lights burnt out

because I had a bad battery off the bike charging
and to top it off the stupid sealed headlight
I cut my lens out and boot legged in temporary a 6 volt bulb until my new lights show up
jb weld to the rescue

Holly Thread Revival!!!!!
I got one to, an 82 its what got me started on the motorcycle kick. I just got the RCMP to verify the vin so I am only a few short steps away from ownership papers and a registration. Have been driving it around the yard, and I think it might need a new float needle but it still runs pretty good. I found it in my in laws barn, turned out to be my wife's bike when she was a teen.
Its red and easy as hell to drive, will be doing my road test on it soon I hope.
Cheers

I cannot express how much I love my C70. I hope to keep it forever.

C70 scoot on a dreary cold day

It is a cold and drizzly day here in Newfoundland today. About 11 degrees Celsius. Lately I have been gravitating towards the ocean, as opposed to rides into downtown St. John's where I normally stop at my favorite coffee shop.

These pics were taken this morning in St. Philips. That is Bell Island in the background.

No. Mine is an '82. I bought it off a guy in New Brunswick and had it shipped here. People are usually surprised to hear its a 31 year-old bike. I LOVE IT.

I was giving an oblique compliment. I know they weren't sold in North America since 1985 or so. I have a '81 also, not as nice as yours though.

I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. Thanks for that. Let's see a pic of yours.

It's that baby blue color color I've never liked. It has the requisite torn seat that happens with Passports - now it has my own homemade cover. A bit of corrosion here and there, a milk crate and front rack. Why the descriptors and no photo's? Its not pretty, but more importantly, my uploading picture abilities are about at 1981 levels.
