ct 90s ct 110 s

amazing to me how these little bikes can hook you with everything else that is out there. The bug bit me about 6 years ago when a friend asked me if I wanted to go tail riding with him on a 69 ct90. 6months later I was rebuilding a basket case. Nothing against the big ktms and BMW they are awesome but I find these little bikes a hoot and a real adventure maker.

The one I used holds 1.6 gallons and was from a Honda XR100. That brings the total to 3.2 gallons.

I am totally certain that anybody may add whatever to anything and get a different result , but -

origanally came with the Motorcycle is the 1.5 gallon Seat-tank
and the Auxillery .5 Gallon Removeable gas tank located under the rear package area
and was lockable also with the helmut - if you used one.

Most people get them from a motorcycle wrecking yard. I got mine from a basket case XR100 that was given to me for free.

well since i have wanted one of these since before they were available to me I have studied them and I have some buyer's magazine's
from the seventies showing exactly how they come as I have shown in the above pic's...
except for the one that has extra rear footpegs an a non-standard rear seat... as this specific model " ALWAYS " was a single
seater yes there were lessor engine sized of this line-up that were 2-seaters but not this 110 ever...

Everything served on a platter for free, huh ....

The suspension on the CT is stock as far as I know, I might get beefier rear shocks.

New from springs

My new front springs are 50% stronger then stock, it was a big advantage in my April trip to Moab.

Now these CT110s are cool bikes. I would love to have a brand new one. But I don't see how anyone could compare one of these to the new Grom. Whole different thing.
