I just purchased a 1984 CT110 and I can't wait to get my hot little hands on it. I've loved riding the CT90's that I've got and I expect even more from the 110. What great, hard-working durable bikes these are. They are the Toyota Land Cruisers of Battle Scooters!

I just inherited a 1968 Honda Trailmaster 90 from my grandfather who recently passed away. Can't wait to get it running and take my first real adventure after lurking here for so long!

OLD trail 90, me pulling neighbor kids in the snow a few years ago near Tulsa Oklahoma.

This trail 90 is a 1967 model and is a franken bike because it has been kept alive from parts from many different years of CT90's. For example the forks are from a much newer model year.
It now needs overhaul because it's compression is low and it burns oil. I will get to it soon. I love it, its been in our family for over 20+ years.

Question silly fuel tank question.

How does the subtank work? does it gravity feed fuel down to the carburetor, or do you just empty it into the main tank when you run out of gas? Also what is it's capacity? I am looking for some kind of aux tank for my C70, and I think this one is still available from Honda.

Dunno if it's available from Honda but Dr. ATV has 'em. The hard thing to find is the hanger bracket for the 90/110's. eBay has 'em all the time but they bring big bucks.

Acerbis makes a fork tank in two sizes that could be adapted in a similar fashion to the CT's auxillary tank. The nice part is that they're plastic, eliminating the rust factor.

Thanks for the info Woodsrat. I just checked with the local Honda dealer today, and the tank is still available for about $63, which would make it cheaper than ordering elsewhere since I wouldnt have to pay shipping. So does the gas just siphon out through the hose at the top?

The auxiliary tank is completely separate. You just pour the gas from the aux tank into the main tank.

When I'm using the "canteen" to refuel my bikes, I open both tops (the small one on the hose and the large filler one too) and then I place my thumb over the tube and position it over the opening in the main tank. Then I move my thumb and allow the gas to flow through the canteen tube and into the main tank. I canteen holds about .6 gallons or so.

Like some others have said, whenever I refuel my bikes, I tend to refuel first with the canteen and if the main still needs more, then put fresh in there. Then I put fresh into the canteen and secure it back on the bike.

Time to revive this thread.

Here's pix of the 1969 Honda CT90 we just bought as an urban run-around for my wife. It's got a new Lifan 138 engine with oil cooler and manual tranny. The bike has been converted to operate kick-start only (no battery). The previous owner did a nearly complete restoration on it, with powder-coated frame and everything. It still needs some sorting, but runs really nice and is pretty punchy with the bigger engine.

My wife has already dropped it once and gashed her leg while learning to ride. Broke the brake lever is all, and there was a spare in the parts box that came with the bike. She was a bit shaken up, but after I fixed the brake lever, she bravely got back on the next day to try again and did great!



The shiny new motor showing the oil cooler and the carb mounted sideways for some reason (I may fix that).

Did that engine just bolt right in? Or did you have to make a bracket?

Dunno, it was put in by the previous owner. But in poking around under the bike, it looks like there's some sort of adapter bracket under the rear of the engine. Wish I could answer better, but I'm still learning my way around this thing.
