Man these things are soo much fun, I never really saw one til about a year ago when a buddy had one for sale. At first I was like damn thats ugly but was drawn to it. I had to have it so 350 bucks later and she was home. My son who was 12 then thought it was the absolute coolest thing hes ever seen and ride the shit out of it at home. He wants to ride it to work when he gets a job. This is a shot of alitte tour I did to a local state forest with some real nice fire roads. Nice and quiet and sipping gas, I love the CT90


Even got the buddy seat with it, the wifey and I take it on little tours on the back roads around the house.

I agree completely.

diesel1959,
Great collection, especially the Land Cruiser Diesel pickup. Very rare?

We were so inspired by the fun everyone's having in this thread that last week we ended up finding two CT90s and got both for under a grand (from two different people). Sure they're not perfect and need paperwork ironed to be registered out but they both run great and have been a blast up and down the street. I can't wait to find some trails...

The red one is a 1970 and the yellow a 1967 - completely different controls but the same idea in mind.

Dammit those look fun. And dammit I've got to get busy looking for one. Craigslist/ebay are last options i think since the bidding has made it so that it would be less fun to own one at an unrealistically inflated price. But there must be thousands of these tucked into corners of barns around michigan.

Paperwork! There's a guy over at mopedarmy.com who's suffering badly at the hands of authority for lack of paperwork. He reported his bike stolen. They found it. "Come on by and sign the forms and be on your way". He went there and his title was not in order. Get the right title they said or the yard keeps it. Yard keeps it too long and it gets sent to the scrap yard. He still does not have his bike back.

I don't know how RI is but you ought to be careful with the paperwork.

I've used ITS in the past in RI without problems and usually use the cost as a bargaining tool when negotiating a price on a bike without everything the DMV wants to see. However their costs have gone up in the last month or so - probably because DMVs everywhere are raising their fees.

Unfortunately many of these bikes were never registered in the first place to be used on back trails and farms so proper paperwork seems to be rare.

I grew up riding a 1968 ct90, red of course. Now in my 40's, I'm waxing nostalgic for one. Lots of them on craigslist out here in the West, ranging from total junkers to restored models with sellers wanting $2k....

I'm heading out to look at a promising 1968 k1 today, exactly like I had in my youth... We'll see.....

If your model has the brackets on the swingarm, those buddy pegs will work.

It seems that as the years went by, Honda discouraged two-up riding on the 90/110's, removing the pegs and stopping the buddy seat. My '79, the last year of the CT90, even had a factory sticker cautioning against two-up riding.

Probably had a lawsuit or two...

Our postie bikes are rated for maximum load of 130kg so yes, it's probably not the best vehicle for two-up riding...

Since we are talking about CT90s,

I've had two of them for the past 10 years. A '69 K1 and a '75 K6. The K1 is faster than the K6 as someone mentioned earlier. They were my re-introduction to motorcycling after taking time off for my kids to grow up. I went from them to dual sporting a DRZ400S and am now back to the 90s. They truly are the perfect trail bike being low and slow, easy and fun to ride in the woods.

ct90 mods

An earlier post in this thread was asking about an atc110 motor swap. Can't see the logic in that but several have done Lifan 140 upgrades and at least one did an ATC 125 engine swap.

I have a CT90 and so far the mods have been the RS rectifier, a new $44 carb, dragon shocks ($40), an XL or XR350 gas tank, 6v LED tail lights (no turn signal upgrades for me as I rarely need them). Over the years I have done several off road rides and I average 108 mpg. That might change with the new carb and it is still on its first tank.

See the Yahoo group. It has a lot of resources and I use Beatrice Cycle (DrAtv) for parts. What other 40 year old mc can you buy a new seat from the dealer for under $100? Love the CTs and it is the ONLY bike I will never sell - find your own or wait until my last breath for this one.

What carb did you get and where did you source it? and how difficult was the installation.

I just inherited a 71 CT90 with 600 miles on it. Perfect, showroom condition except gasoline was left in it all these years. What a mess. I got the tank to clean up real nice, but i think the carburetor might be more work than it's worth.

I would replace the fuel lines (get the ones from Honda or dratv they are smaller than Napa lines and easier to route) put in a inline filter and get a carb kit, it is very rare that you will find a carb that is not rebuild able. http://dratv.com/carin.html
