Thought maybe some countries got these tanks from the factory.
Most people get them from a motorcycle wrecking yard. I got mine from a basket case XR100 that was given to me for free.
well since i have wanted one of these since before they were available to me I have studied them and I have some buyer's magazine's
from the seventies showing exactly how they come as I have shown in the above pic's...
except for the one that has extra rear footpegs an a non-standard rear seat... as this specific model " ALWAYS " was a single
seater yes there were lessor engine sized of this line-up that were 2-seaters but not this 110 ever...
Everything served on a platter for free, huh ....
Just bought an 84 110
finally got my CT110, I sold my C70 to my brother to get this...
these have to be the best two bikes on the planet
Mendodave, are you running stock springs?
The suspension on the CT is stock as far as I know, I might get beefier rear shocks.
My new front springs are 50% stronger then stock, it was a big advantage in my April trip to Moab.
Im currently looking for one. Hoping to go see a couple in the coming weeks.
I'll post up if I pick one up.
My scooter is almost done so I'll need another toy haha.
Now these CT110s are cool bikes. I would love to have a brand new one. But I don't see how anyone could compare one of these to the new Grom. Whole different thing.
did you get them from dratv.com?
the ones on mine seem a little soft, even coming from the G/S
The springs windburn is talking about are a great inprovement and come from Gizmo over on the YUKU ct forum. I'll find the link and maybe you can contact him. I've installed them on all my CT's.
Tell him tuna/Craig sent you!
What made you want to replace them on all your ct's. Picking up a Ct next week hopefully. But I'm only 150lbs so I'm not sure if I'll really need the stiffer shocks. Only has 1800kms on it so the stock ones shouldn't be too worn.

On mine, they were replaced as I ride some real rough stuff and as with any CT the suspension sucks. My wifes were replaced as they were free w/install as she fed Gizmo so well he wanted to do it in return, and hers were shot. At 150lbs I wouldn't bother with your CT.
I went to a larger shock because I was bottoming out on my originals. I'm a large man.
Hey all, I hope this is an appropriate thread for this...
"EDIT: didn't see a trail-90 thread"
My old neighbor showed me a bike he wants to get rid of today.
It is a 1975 honda trail 90 with 119 total miles on it. Looks brand new. Never redone, all original.
I wouldn't have believed the miles if I didn't see it for myself.
He wants to sell it and doesn't really seem to know what to ask.
This is a web pic, not the actual bike, but basically the same.
Any thoughts or feedback would be great, THANKS!!
Wow, that's low miles. I'd pay what makes both of you happy. Parts are. easy to get and there real easy to work on. Prices differ from what area your in. Make sure there is a title with it. Having to deal with that can be expensive. If it's been sitting you'll need to do a carb re-build and a new battery is a must. The elect. systym on the CT is there weak point. Good luck.
I would pay US$1,000 for that if I was there.
Just paid for a pair of '84's that were in storage for over 25 years. Waiting for "uship" to book a transport.
Hoping they won't have rusty tanks or shellacked carbs from improper storage.
Here's the neat part.... combined mileage... 493 !!!! (238 on one and 255 on the other)
Word was if they weren't on a road trip with their motorhome, they were tucked away in the garage.
Very excited. My gal has never piloted a motorcycle and this bike seems like a good way to ease her into it. Fingers crossed
Will post up pictures and a video of her first ever motorcycle riding endeavor.
I'm trying to find a new home for this old ct90. It's rough but would make a good start.
