What fender are y'all using for the front when it is a high mount? I got a 21" wheel I am putting on the front of mine...
I have been off of this project for a while (money was tight), but got a little extra to spend. I am at least going to get the engine started/running.
Have a good one,
Picked up a nice 1981 Ct110 a while back. Had 300 miles on it!

I used the front end from an XR1xx, so I was able to use the XR mounting holes in the lower tree. Maybe you could drill and tap your lower tree?
Appreciate the response.
The tree is already tapped for screws, the forks/tree are from a SL100. I was thinking xr/crf70 fender, but thought it might be a little short looking with the 21" front wheel.
SL100 front end on my Trial90. Universal front trials fender mounted to fork brace from Speed & Sport.
Wonder how it would look to mount the fender "high" instead of low. As I think of it, or would probably be dumb.
That CT sure does look swell! That is how I had the first trials fender mounted on a fork stabilizer I got off ebay. I am going to run a knobby up front, reason for "high" fender. This is going to be a little different CT than just trials.
I would guess something wider for a high mount, however it would be more dependent upon the environment you choose to waller around in.
The Trial 90 looks great btw, and the trials fender certainly complements the over-all look.
One of the many adventures.
Touring New Mexico.
Bottomless lakes in Roswell, NM.
Ready for the CDT.
I think it would look better to mount the fender high. Looks good the way it is, but the high fender would give it more of a tough off-road look, IMO.
High fenders might look cool, but function like crap! All spray from any water coats you and the bike with water and road gunk. Stick with the low fender unless you are going through sticky mud a lot, you will be glad you did.
I haven't noticed any problem with being sprayed with water while running a high fender. And I would say run a high fender if you ever ride in sticky mud. Try doing that even once with a low fender, and you won't be glad at all when the mud builds up and locks up the tire, and you have to remove the fender to get it out.

Well, I've been away for awhile. Both of my bikes were stolen in 2014, in December. Both are still completely gone. Have seen neither bolt nor oil drip of them anywhere. Craigslist, swap meets, nothing. Sadly, as much as I love these bikes, I don't think I have it in me to buy another CT. At least not right now. Just hurts too much after all I did to them. Especially since the insurance won't even bother paying out on them. Yeah, that was worth the damn money for coverage.
Still, happy riding y'all. time to find a new bike to enjoy and tinker with. Maybe a Honda Shadow.
Sorry to hear MacGyver.
Its a 69
Same here. BOTH bikes!!
Any new news about your '90s ????
Did you do the CDT on the CT? Any ride report? (it is never too late to do one!)
Just added this 1980 to the stable!
