Honda produced the CT90 for 13 years, an evolution of the varying small displacement trail bikes that were marketed to farmers, hunters, and other people with a sense of adventure. The model started as a spinoff of the Super Cub, and for 1966 Honda dropped previous designations and went with CT90 – though you may remember it as the Trail 90.
The first year of the CT still showed a lot of its Super Cub roots, though the motor now utilized an overhead cam. Previous versions of the bike had two sprockets to enable low gearing to carry large loads, but now the switchover was done with a lever on the gearbox. This gave much quicker access to what was now basically an 8-speed tranny. The transmission was semi-automatic, so your left hand did not have a clutch to work with. For more information, check out this site dedicated to the Trail 90.
This example (VIN: CT90-110205) is said to be an “unrestored, unmolested, survivor”. It hads 3,960 miles and it comes with the owner’s manual, parts manual, service manual, factory tool kit, a 1966 Georgia license plate, and a period poster. Everything is said to work though the seller notes the bike “is not perfect” and doesn’t specify exactly what that means.
