Is the 110 worth the extra "power?"

I personally don't think so. Condition is the most important thing.

If you can get the same exact bike I would go with the 110 but if a 90 is in better condition I would go for it.

and the little things, like the aux fuel tank - are frequently missing on this vintage CT-90.

Going to go look at this one tomorrow. Trading an ar-15, which I never use, for a bike I'll never ride.

When you get tired of it in about a week I will trade you my AR for it. or some vintage stuff.

That looks like a great one and I would be all over it for about $900 less.

What I don't understand is why the front fender is not all bent up. They are always bent up on CT90's.

Say what you will about the 440 but I've always hoped one would find its way home with me.

Since we're on a single kick, here is an oddball for sure. Not sure on the price but I'm sure it will be available for a while.

http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/mcy/4007600663.html

1997 MZ Skorpion 660 sport bike - $2000 (East Mesa)

12k miles, runs great, new front tire, extremely clean, set up for racing
No calls after 8:00 pm please (480) 986-1288

The MZ Scorpians are pretty cool and that seems like a decent price. It's a yamaha engine, 5 valve I believe. There also make the Baghira a cool SM.

LOL, yeah if I make this trade he's coming out way on top, but even if I paid $600 the wife would be pissed every time she looked at it. I figure that's worth a grand. I might have 700 rds. of .223 to get rid of.....

The naked ones are the best. Real light, good handling. Like an SRX650 with an electric foot.

If it was local I would be looking at it.
