Post Sale Update: Initially, this CT110 did not meet reserve with 44 bids up to $3,050. The seller then relisted it and it sold for a BIN of $4,500!
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. So when Honda moved on to the CT110 in 1980 (basically the same bike but it weighed a pinch more and the motor was bored out to 105cc), they made sure to keep your left hand free. This example stands out as it has just 300 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.

Though the included photos of this bike are a bit out of focus, the seller says it looks nearly untouched and it “runs as good as it looks.” The seller acquired it from the original owner and says the only flaws are scratches in the left side of the headlight bucket and left rear turn signal housing, a “little ding” in the left headlight bucket, and a small tear at the end of the left hand grip. The bike still retains its original Bridgestone tires – they hold air but they have cracks in the sidewalls. You’ll get the original key, original tool kit, and the California blue plate (but it’s currently registered in Nevada).
