My winter project Honda CT90

29 Jan

I picked up a non-running (stuck) 1968 Honda CT90 back in November.

The bike was mostly complete but very rough
It did not come with a kick lever. No need since the piston was hopelessly stuck in the cylinder
The bike is nearing completion. Lots of new parts from Dr, ATV & eBay.
I still need to replace the clutch and install an air filter and it will be done.

If you have a bike project that you would like to share with the group, send pictures and captions to me at
