91 Miles – 1979 Honda CT90

In Dual-Sport, Less than 5k, Small Displacement by AbhiLeave a Comment

Honda’s Trail 90 (or CT90, depending on the market) was a popular entry point for youngsters to learn how to ride in the dirt – one of the reasons it was so easy to ride was the 4-speed transmission with an automatic clutch. That apparently wasn’t too much of a concern for the owners of this example, as it has less than 100 miles!

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. Pre ’86 models have a 6V electrical system with points.

This example is offered by the second owner, who says that everything is original (down to the tires) and that it’s basically perfect except for a scratch in the front fender mounting bracket from when the original owner kept it stored in their RV.
