Nice little machine.
Someone upped and plowed that cop car into something.
Mine, need to take her out and shake the dust off...
Ride it like you stole it and the cops are right behind you.
I rode it yesterday in shorts, shoes, tshirt, helmet and gloves...I felt like a flashback to the 70s. I think I got her up to a solid 35 on my gravel road :)
I picked up three CT90s this week - two 1969s and a 1970. For a whopping total of $300.
...because all three need carburetor, exhaust, seat, and headlight bucket. (Anyone got some spares?)
I don't want to part any of them out, so I'll probably just build all three and then sell two. Or so I say. Really, I'll just keep all three.
Time for Honda to revive this bike. With standard motorcycle forks (and not the Earls type that my first motorcycle, an old Trail 90 had), maybe the 125cc Grom engine, the spare fuel tank and all. I live on the big island of Hawaii not far from the current volcanic action. My first motorcycle was a Trail 90. I rode the piss out of it back when I was eight years old or so. Been riding ever since. Mine was the first model with the dual range transmission. My friend had an older version with the two quick change rear sprocket system, which worked very well also.
I'm soon to be 65 and having health problems, but still riding. I"d order a new Trial 125 tomorrow. My older Trail 90 topped out at 57 with my, then, skinny self tucked out flat open on a paved road. I was eight, so it was an illegal ride. The statute of limitations has long run out. I also painted the license sticker red and wore a darkened full face shield too, and road that thing around on the streets sometimes, as I couldn't wait till I was old enough to get my permit. I was never busted for that. Would be cool to have had a Trail 90 for my first ride, and a Trail 125 for my last one.
How about it Honda? A Trail 125 would be a great island bike. Lots of rough gravel and dirt roads here.
Birdmove, good to hear from you, wondered how you were doing and your status as to the volcano. Will you have to evac or can you stay where you are? Have been to the big island and Hickham and got to see an active volcano flow years ago. Very impressive I hope your safe where you are. cms
We're okay for now. It probably won't get close to us, but following lave flow, breakouts, etc, isn't real exact. Seems there has been over 80 homes destroyed now, probably more.
Good news ,hope it will continue for you and others involved. cms
Birdmove are you still on the safe side of the lava flows. cms
That would be awesome!
Hey, where's the tech thread for CT90's? I wanna ask a dumb question about air leaking from the carb-to-intake insulator/gasket.
Boooooooo I don’t wanna sign up for another forum
You could always start a thread. Maybe something like, "the big CT90/110/ other Honda horizontals tech thread."
