Tempted by the Honda CT

Post by roadster »

As a 16/17 year old I had at least a couple of Honda C50/90/cub machines and I have been tempted to try a CT90/110/125 which I have always liked the look of. The amazing thing is that I could buy anything from a brand new CT125 ( albeit imported ) to a 45+ year old original and I have been weighing up the pros and cons. I'm now leaning towards a historic one because it makes more financial sense to have something which I can put away in the shed and it will cost me nothing in depreciation or tax if I don't enjoy riding it. So I am keeping a close eye on various Ebay offerings - watch this space!

Honda CT90 is now mine.

Cosmetically its almost in showroom condition and its hard to believe its a 1970 machine. But quite a lot of mechanical work to do I think.

Looking forward to a ride round the block but I'll have to be patient.

I restored a CT90 some years ago, DRATV. COM was a good source for engine parts. Lot of help and info at https://ct90-ct110.com/

Roadster, Congratulations, you’ve got a beauty there, I hope it’s running and that you have not too much work to do on it.
A bit like the work I’m doing on my ST70.....
