Honda C90 Street Cub build.

Hi all,

I started this project a couple of weeks ago. I thought I may as well start a thread rather than clog up the 'In your garage' today thread. with it.

I bought this from ebay, with no engine. The frame appeared to be sound and I will be installing a Lifan 125 engine anyway. It a 10 careful (not) previous owner 30k mile shitheap.












I started the strip down and did not find any massive issues. The centre stand pin was rusted solid and no amount of heat or brute force would shift it. Hacksaw....



Same story with the swingarm but I'm doing new bushes so I chopped that as well.



My Man castle



Strip down finished





Chosen the paint.



New tail/stop/numberplate light arrived.


Got everything sand blasted.













Will do some welding and grinding this weekend now I can see what I'm working with.

Great, have you started a build thread yet. We need pictures.
I am mostly gathering parts at the moment. Got some fresh tyres today. Should make a bit not progress at the weekend hopefully.

Made a little progress today. Got the rear shock mounts plated and welded and chopped the back end a little shorter. Going to clean up the crappy welds and get a coat of stone chip paint under the rear end tomorrow.

Some more parts arrived as well. Got the Indicators from China this morning.

A bit more fabrication this afternoon. I wanted the chopped frame to have a nice finish, so grafted in a bit of 6mm rod.





Got the stone chip paint on under the back end and down the inside of the forks.





Rims are ready.











Got a coat of high build primer on the swingarm as well.

A bit more progress today. Mainly cleaning up parts before they go back on. I also mocked up the lights to see if I like them.





I was thinking that the Tail light/number plate was going on the side of the swingarm.














Had a bit of a clear up as well.

Not a lot of progress this week as I've been waiting for parts and the engine. I did get the chain and sprokets this week and a couple of other small bits.

Not much progress over the last week or two. Work has been crazy.

Added a bit of bog on the tail to hide the weld.






Built the Top yoke/handlebar risers

Nice progress man. One of the best parts of a build is when you can sit on your bike with bars in hand and make motor noises.
I finally got around to posting my own build thread. It's over on the chopcult forums if you'd like to check it out.

Yeah it's a safety thing Makes falling off less painful as you can't stick the bars in your ribcage. I had a look at you build thread. Your making more progress than me at the minute! ;-) Looks great.
