Thanks I'm going to look into that. Should be off to get sandblasted by the weekend so I want to put something on it ASAP so it doesn't start rusting again. I'm just waiting for my buddy to be ready with his bike frame so we can get them both done at the same time. He's putting together a 64 CT200.

Only about 1.5 gals., not a whole lot really. I should probably just find a plastic XR tank like you guys mount on your postie bikes. Pretty easy way to get 3-4 gals. that way. It's just the ATC tank is an extra so I figured I would use it. Probably go 500 kms between it and the main tank.

ct 90 group

you might want to join the ct90 yahoo group 3500 members and everyone is willing to share what they know about this bike and what modefications can be done. great group. Recommend you have it powder coated and let the powder coater prep the bike. They come back looking like new and its very durabble finish

Thanks Bob. Yeah I'm already on that group. I see your replies every once in a while.

I have been a little busy riding and training for a rally coming up in June so I haven't had much time to work on the CT lately. I'll get back to it once things start to slow down a bit.

Thumb awesome!

I have a 78, I have been (slowly) making it run better. I agree the 6 volt system is a PITA. Mine has not had a charged functional bettery since I have had it, and I usually just push start mine in 2nd.

I want to do lots of things to upgrade mine, but since I have had the CT, the other bikes just sit till the weekend, unless I commute. I have a milk crate strapped to the back of mine, and its the end all kick ass beer run bike. Especially since taking the road is completely optional.

For the money its hard to find more bang for the buck.

carry on...

I wanna see this bike together. Since you have been talking aobut it i have seen 3 honda 125m's for sale. I wanna get one, kinda worried about top end speed. Is this 125 gonna make your bike slower because of the gearing.

I'm not sure but I don't think so. There were a couple guys on the Yahoo group who have claimed to have done the swap before but they don't really have much info about the top speed. Jack at DRATV says it is a good swap so I have a feeling it's a moot point. Maybe the gears are a bit different but I should be able to adjust with different size sprockets to make it work.

I'm going into this more or less blind so I'm learning as I go.

Well, I think they only made the 125m for 2 years, but they must have sold a ton of them. I remember when the 3 wheelers came out. My best friend had a 70. I can't for the life of me remember if it shifted or not. That bike was a beast though, we rode 3 up on it all the time. He once jumped and fell 12 feet on it, no issues. He still has the dang thing in his garage and were both 45 now, must have been over 30 years ago. I can't believe we didn't die! But, I digress. I've seen post one the other group too, and I can't believe you don't get more help there or more info about speed. I can't freaking wait.!!!

Yup they have a 4-speed semi-auto. I have one of those in the garage too!

I have a camo CT90 that would love this treatment....



Looking forward to the progress and the how too. If I can I may well follow your lead.

Love the idea.

Don't be shy to post a pic. It would maybe give me an idea.

I have found a powdercoater with an oven big enough to fit the frame. He will sandblast and powdercoat for $250. Right now I'm thinking a satin black or gloss black if the satin is not doable. I think the frame needs some work in the battery box area first so I have to get that sandblasted first so I can weld some new metal in there.

Not the greatest pic... I will try to find the others. The better ones are on my laptop and I am waiting on a replacement power supply for it.
This was a pretty well done job. I need to seal the tank as it is rusting and I am having a hard time keeping it running. But it sure is fun. It would rock with the upgrade you are planning. I am going to have to look for one of those engines .

This belongs to my friend

He's completely rebuilt this bike. It was running a standard 90cc honda motor in it until the engine blew. Completely f'ed piston (shattered) and gnarled connecting rod.



Check it out NOW. It now has a new 140cc lifan chinese clone.



His comments were "I LOOOOOOVE the new engine! Wasn't able to to a top speed test today, but 3rd will get me going above 50mph, and 4th still has plenty of pull and *should* get it to 75mph!" and
"The new engine is getting about 110mpg!"

With the standard carb mounting


Flipping the Carb


Modifying the frame cover to fit the carb cable/fuel line


The guy just graduated with a engineering degree. This is a hobby of his.

I think at 75MPH I'd want a little (a lot?) more brakes and suspension.

Just about doubling the top speed with no other changes is somewhat dangerous.
