Seeing as I’m heading out to the US launch of the Trail125 today, it only seems appropriate to feature the last Trail sold in the US – the 1986 Trail 110.
The 105cc engine produced 7.6 horsepower, but that was fine because the bike weighed just over 200 pounds wet. In addition, it featured a dual range ‘subtransmission’ which could be engaged with a lever that would yield a roughly 2:1 ratio reduction. This enabled easy scaling of steep hills, even with less than 8 horsepower. ’86 was the last year that CTs were officially sold in the US. For more information, head on over to this site dedicated to the CT90 and 110.
The seller of this example says it should be in a museum and that it’s in spectacular condition with just 556 miles. The first 33 years of its life were in Idaho and the seller believes he’s at least the third owner. There’s no surface rust and it looks damn close to new.
