They are what they are. If you want a faster better looking bike...buy a faster better looking bike.

The Trails are awesome! They go for big bucks around here. Up to $1500 for a decent runner.

Gota Luv'Em! Gramps gave me this one to fix up to sell to help pay for my son's first car. Fixed it up with the DrATV's help but I didn't have the heart to sell. Now my son love's it too.
Even started a thread on Ones for sell, Although I've dropped the ball posting this busy winter.

I've taken this 1974 model on a couple of rides. The suspension is not good enough to handle the rocky areas where I ride.

I was lost now I'm found

I had a trail 90 in the 60's sold it to my dad who kept it for 20 years . Last time I rode with him was in 1974 on levies around Dallas above the Trinity river.God bless him. As I got my own family we had to ride. So a KDX 80 and a Suzuki quad 80 appeared one Chrismas. Dumb me, how am I going to watch them when they go into the woods? Well it's 1986 and the local Honda shop has a new '84 110 left over. BINGO. For about 3 years we rode in the woods. I couldn't keep up but I was never over 1 or 2 minutes behind. Last weekend (18 years later) I pulled the cover off, draind the gas, refilled and she starded 1st kick. OMG.. took her out to the old riding area and got into several conversations. Everybody said Keep her..... I am. now what when I let a group of riders pass...and ALL of them do I still catch them a minute or two after they stop!!! All miles are on dirt. LIFE IS GOOD

good memories...

A buddy of mine had a trail 90 both of us together probably weighed 240 pounds and yet that thing would haul our butts around all day, and up steep trails in low range. For 90 cc it impressed the heck out of me. I wished I had one. Took me until my late 30s to get a bike of my own, but that trail 90 started my love of dual sports.

Mine was a Trail 70 with folding handle bars

It looked much like the Trail 90s in this tread. I think I got it for Christmas of either 1967 or 1968; so it was one of those model years.

I bent the crap out of the bars about a dozen times. I would lay it on its side, put one foot on it, pull the soft steel bars rough straight again, and ride away.

It was an awesome little ride.

ct110 thumper/scooter

Well I just got the title to my dad's old ct110 (81, purchased new in 83). she needs some transmission work and a few odds and ends. Right now it is stuck in Neutral. I hope to have her going by this summer. Great little bikes.

Loaded-up '84 CT110

Howdy all,

I know it's a little late, but here is a pick of my Dad's '84 CT110 after I got back from the Isle of Vashon vintage bike show and poker run on Vashon Island, Washington.

I had about 60 pounds of gear on it and it worked like a champ. It has HD rear shocks installed and I have yet to bottom it out, even fully loaded on a bad road. It also has a 42T rear sprocket (vs. Stock 45T) which makes it cruise a bit nicer out on the road (cruise at about 45mph)
