Hey Moth, what year XR100 forks are those? They seem a little long, do XR80's work and are the shorter? Seems like a cool mod for a little extra travel...

The forks, handlebars, front wheel, and gas tank are from a 1990 Honda XR100R. The are a little long but they work great and the bike handles well. I don't know about the XR80 forks.

My first bike was a CT 90. Man that thing took some pounding.

For anyone interested. We run an event here over 11days, 3600+km, on an unmodified Honda CT110. We call them postie bikes as all our postmen ride them here.

This yellow Honda was our first one. I later tried to buy it back from the retired gal that bought it from us but she wouldn't let it go. We got it from Gramp when he got his sparkly new and powerful '69 Yamaha twin scrambler at age 70.

Well I just read some bad news in the newspaper, it seems that Australia post is downgrading from CT110's to pushbikes with assistor motors attached due to environmental concerns (what a toss).

Looks like they're set to become collectors items!

Australia Post trials eco-friendly electric bicycles


Article from:
Elissa Doherty
September 28, 2008 12:00am

POSTIES have begun a trial of electric bicycles and tricycles in a plan to combat soaring fuel prices and be more environmentally friendly.
Australia Post staff will take to bikes in Adelaide first but plans to roll out the trial to Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Australia Post also is hopeful the electric bikes will help boost recruitment of posties, by attracting people without a motorcycle licence.
"We are testing electric bicycles and tricycles, which are more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly ways to deliver the mail than motorbikes," spokesman Joshua Zugajev said.
"We have no intention to replace all our motorcycles, but rising fuel costs and a need for cleaner forms of transport mean trialling these electric bikes makes perfect sense," Mr Zugajev said.
The electric bicycles and tricycles were quicker than walking, made less noise than motorcycles, were virtually pollution-free and used rechargeable ion batteries, he added.
They are assisted by an electric motor, which means the rider still pedals but receives a significant boost from the motor.
"Obviously these electric bikes will not suit all areas given terrain and distances, but it is becoming harder in some areas to find people with motorbike licences and new modes of transport can only assist us in the future when recruiting new staff," Mr Zugajev said.
He said the changing nature of the Australian workforce was driving the postal service to look at new ways to attract people to delivery rounds.
"It's important we find other ways to not only deliver the mail but to make the job more appealing to a broader group of recruits, including return-to-work parents, tertiary students and semi-retirees," he said.

RIGHT before I went to ADV today, I checked Madison, WI's, Craigslist, and saw this!

I have three projects working now, so not for me. But not a helluva lot has changed, has it? :)

Here's some pics of the CT I just picked up. It seems to be an oddball- the model name on the left side is some funky 60's writing and the front fender reflector is rare as hell. I believe it's a 69' K1b which makes it an ultra oddball 1/2 year model. Anyway- it's a hoot to ride and although it needs some maintenance, seems in OK shape. Here's some (crappy) pics...
