That reminded me of the old Honda ad:
I took my 1971 CT 90 for a run around the neighborhood here in Salem, Oregon.

The leaves are 5' across
My 1980 CT110. Post Resto, 15k Miles.
Got mine up and running... Here's a shot from her maiden voyage @ Big Creek Lake CO
I'm not sure how I feel about honda 90's being considered "scooters" by this forum but this seems like the appropriate place for this pic. Here is my collection of ct90's ranging from '66 to '72. Please note the super rare roadster kit top tank I'm running on the '70.

Hey poe, fancy meeting you here! Scoots looking good.
Hey Tuna, how ya doing? I can't believe they refer to these motorcycles as "scooters". They are so faulty. Haha!
You scored, keep us posted. Tell us more.
Where are they coming from? Price, if you don't mind?
Yeh, I say you got a ok deal but that one for $3600+ WOW that's the most I've ever seen somebody pay for one, it's a beauty but.... I've been around these for years riding them and working on them, that was pricey, somebody wanted it bad, but it is Mars Orange.
Once you get them up and going you and your lady will forget what you paid. There alot of fun and will go anywhere as long as you have traction. Plus very easy to work on. They run forever.
Good source for parts. http://www.dratv.com/honcttrail90.html

I second that.
Yup, I have too much invested in mine - don't really care. It's still the cheapest bike to own in the garage, has a very high grin per dollar ratio and I don't intend to sell it.
et - you prolly already know this, but the CT90/110's will blow bulbs is it's run either with a dead battery or a missing battery. Something about the battery performing as a voltage regulator. DRATV has all the replacement bulbs.

Don't have it anymore...this was my 1980 CT110.
Starting the search for another.
Heres my '84 with 2500 miles. Most of those were put on by me the last couple summers. It had sat in my families garage untouched for 20 plus years. My dad says he didn't have time to ride it any more because he had kids (me). So I got intrigued and started working on it. At that time there were about 1200 miles on it. Still has the extra gas tank and tool kit.
Relined the tank
I've had some great rides on this little guy, hope to have many more. I really enjoy looking at fellow 90 and 110 riders bikes.
Nice looking CT. I like that the large chrome rack was removed and the Early K0 rack was being used. Also like the non-stock downtube cover and plastic color. Looks good. I'd search for any other year than a 1980 as that model didn't have the dual range trans. Still a cool bike!
If I may, what's the story on that exhaust? Thanks.
