Finally...

Well I finally got my '67 Honda CL90 running again. Not well, but it's better than just sitting there being an obnoxious doorstop.



It doesn't look anywhere near as nice as the picture (when I first bought it), I hammered on this poor thing, but we had a lot of fun!
I'm getting it in good enough order to sell so I can get this:



I'll immediately take it to the shop and add a 140cc top end with 26mm carb., and possible rear sprocket upgrade.
BTW- the flames have to go!
Just thought I'd babble for a bit,
thanks for "listening"...

I dig it.
It's based on the honda 90 (snout foward engine design), and is slightly smaller than my '67 CL...
I personally like small bikes. I always have, that's why motorized bikes appeal to me so much, but I need something like the honda for commuting, etc. and my toyota is good for frozen roads , ice, and snow. I feel more in control of a smaller bike, and weighing in at 125, I can get smaller bikes to move pretty fast.
I think the tank will need a couple of Motoredbikes.com stickers, no?
LOL

That's a clean looking Honda, I got my first Honda fifty at 12 years old for 25.00 , then a Honda C(B?)100 for 100.00 when I was 17 to commute ten miles to High school. Both were great cycles and a fundamental riding experience.

p.s. just re-read, okay the bike does not quite look like the pic now got it.

Yeah, that pic is how it looked the first day I got it.
Now it's hammered. It wouldn't take a whole lot to get back, but I just want somethin' else.
I dig small bikes, I always have; that chopper is about the same size as my CL, but 10cc bigger. With the larger 140cc top end and 52 tooth sprocket it should be just right...
Probably as much fun as my whizzer, chinese80, and island hopper kits I hope!

I traded the Honda 100 for a Cushman Super Eagle, sold that when parts were scarce, in 1980 I bought a Suzuki TS185 Sierra enduro. I will take a pic and post it soon.

Cushmans are cool. There's a lot of repop parts for them now since the renewed interest in them as collectible vehicles.
I look foward to the pic.
Hey my longest standing, closest friend just bought this:



Oh yeah! she and I are gonna terrorize the neighborhood!
1t's a 1987 with 122 original miles. It looks, sounds, and rides like it just came out of the showroom. We got it from the original owner. Man is it ever cherry!
I'm picking up my chopper on Tuesday, so we will be 150cc (combined) of wild adventuring heck on wheels
*LOL*!
When you ride odd and orphan vehicles you gotta have a sense of humor about everything!

I have tickets to see the WHO tonight.

And what a show it was! The WHO had not played Fresno since 1968 when they performed with Quicksilver Messenger Service. The band was in fine form performing material from their new release endless wire, interspersed with some of the standards and a powerful reprise of Tommy. A great show.
