Childhood whip, still running strong. Can't beat a honda.

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

^ very nice.

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

I have always kinda loved these and friend just got one, and it's got me looking at them again. holy shit, they're expensive as fuck now

like i recognize the underbone hondas got a lot of love from the trendy motoblog crowd recently, and theres still that boomer with money and no clue nostalgia crowd that's been paying thousands for CT70's for years, and now the new hunter cub drumming up enthusiasm again, but man - they're fetching like 2 grand for one like advwag's, and people call that a good deal. wild.

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

Keep your eyes peeled. Look at old motorcycle repair shops, junkyards, hoarders places. They made millions of these bikes and they do come up for sale cheap sometimes.

Mine is an early with the cantilever front suspension, I'd prefer the newer ones with regular forks as they are more capable.

Kinda feel bad that I used to jump this bitch as a kid keeping up with the dirt bikes other kids had. My bike was the "dorky" one back then and was very cheap as my family couldn't afford a dirt bike. Glad for that because now these bikes last and are sought after.

Yeah, I like the ones with real forks and the real downtube cover (vs the gray sock)

Does it have the gear selector in the engine? or dual sprockt?

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

nm you can see it in the engine. at least theres that haha

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

Yep selectable low range trans. Another weird thing about the early models is they have to have a charged battery to run. Later models and atc 90s were wired differently so no battery required to run.

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

yea i had an s90, wouldnt run w/o battery and battery had issues with the selenium plate rects. pain

The mechanism is the little bubble out of the left side case cover over where the front sprocket is. Selector is a lil lever out the top of that

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

Watching Adam-12 episode from 2/16/72 ep20 the main characters are loaned out to the air-port and are riding around on what look to be CT-90's! (useless fact of the day) :) Episode is called sub-station if you know where to look it up...

Thanks dude I've been all over this bike and never saw it. I was wondering why I had it rung out and was only hitting 25mph

I love this channel, an older series of his was on his Trail 90 project. Later on he bought an ATC 125 and did an engine swap on it. Some of his methods will make more refined engine builders cringe, but It's a really fun watch. His sense of humor gets me every time

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

I saw that too.....a bit much for a poorly running bike...

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

That trl 90 does look clean, offer em less and see if they go for it. Too bad it’s not closer to me.

Re: Any CT90 bros on here?

Just finished timing it, valve adjustment is kicking my ass though, I'm not confident I'm doing anything even after watching videos and shit. Kinda with I could just put an E50 on it and send it out the door
