hugemoth,
Very nice, I would not call it a rat bike.

Street Bike? Scooter? You tell me -

This was the challenge:

I met this guy last week...

His name is Alan Robertson, and not only did he do this "race' but he and his Daughter are doing a ride for charity to Newfoundland this summer.

Perhaps he may post the details here to interest contributions to the charity.

Where can I get one of those gas tanks?

The tank is from an old Honda XR100 dirt bike.

Hey, Hugemoth:

What is the front clip from? And how do you like it?
I'm looking for candidate front clips. Looks so far like the selection is CT90, CB125, S90, CL90, and SL125.

Oh, wait! I see in another post that it's from an XR100. Did the stem bolt up fine? Not too short? (I just have the frame and rear wheel so far....)

I had to add an inch or two to the stem. Otherwise it fit fine and it works very well.

BTW: I'm working on lowing the seat today because it was too high for my daughter. Had to remove the stock tank and make a bracket to hold the seat.

Just add an inch or two to the stem... you make it sound soooo easy. And I know it can't be that easy. I'm sitting here puzzling out how you'd do that. Weld (or braze, silver solder) on another piece of similar tubing and cut new threads??? Cut the stem in the middle (between where the bearings fit) and add a piece there??? Either one sounds fiddly, and the result has to pass through center of the bearings. Am I missing a simple solution here?

I cut the top few inches off the original stem from the leading link forks, cut the threaded part off the XR100 stem, then welded them together with an oxy torch. I lined them up with a straight edge, tacked them in place, made a good weld, then ground it down so the bearing race would slip over. No rethreading needed. It's quite easy if you have the tools.

A donor piece from the original stem... I like it! Thanks!

I'm restoring this one my father in law gave me. It hadn't been started since 1981. It started on the third kick after the carburator was cleaned and I got rid of the 30 year old gas.





I finished the engine a few weeks ago.

1971, 900 mile....Found it buried in my father-in-laws garage a couple years after he passed. Today I rebuilt the carb, new spark plug, new battery and air filter......started right up on the third kick!

I had one of these as a kid, should be fun for my grandkids to use.....

Probably my favorite CT pic. Our '69 and '75 CT90s atop Ellis Peak (8100') overlooking Lake Tahoe with the moon rising.



The venerable CT. Awesome. Slow, but awesome. One day my lovely girl (who'd never owned a motorcycle before- me either), took the truck and went out and bought one ('69 K0). They multiplied till we had 4 of them. We're pretty much bicycle nuts, but seem to have accumulated 6 motorcycles as well.

The girl, on top of Mt Watson (8200'), overlooking Lake Tahoe.



See a trend here? CTs (and my girl), at Martis Peak (8550'), overlooking Lake Tahoe.


My little CT90 (with a 140cc Lifan engine), dwarfed by my girl's TW200 at an abandoned cabin near Desolation wilderness.



And last one. My CT90 (Lifan 140cc), out on the Rubicon Jeep trail, near my house. The funny thing is that jeepers wouldn't take note of the pretty blond girl on the TW200 with me, but would go nuts waving and honking and pointing that I was riding a CT90 on the Rubicon Trail.


Lots of great memories with the CTs. They were great in low range and could handle some tight twisty singletrack that would be a challenge on a bigger bike. Plus you could just lift the CT over fallen logs, etc.
