Looks really cool in that color. We are planning on doing ours in a seafoam green!

Thats a great rebuild you are doing. Heck, the before pics look better than the '69 I fixed up to run again after it sat 17 years in a carport.

Almost there...

It looks and feels like a motorcycle now:

Today i took the first ride on it, took a while to start but once it did, it idled perfectly... some chain rattle on the inside of the engine.

Love the look of those allen bolts:




This new shock work great but, now the centerstand floats a little because of the new bike's height:

CT90 muffler repair (cheap)

This is my nasty looking exhaust from my CT90 (shaky hands didn't help much either), since i know it will be a long time till y buy a new one, i decided to take it to a muffler shop to see what they can do...


I dremeled out the broken, and thinned metal parts...


Muffler guy slabbed to pieces of shaped, thick... very thick metal to house the tip of the muffler. Looks ugly, works great!

Finally... finished CT90!

...well, 99% finished since the ignition switch and fork lock are on their way home, then it will be 100% finished... well, not really cause I'm still missing all the 6v dash lights that i can't find locally (do this bikes ever get finished? seems like there's always something missing).


oops, just noticed that I'm also missing the left side cover bolt... i tell ya, there's no end to restoring this bike.


Real leather seat, upholstry guy did a great job... i gave him the seat pan, seat foam (DrATV, thanks), and a bunch of pictures of how it must look stock, next day the guy calles me and asks me if i wanted the HONDA letters also... i thought he was gonna paint them on but to my surprise the guy did a... don't what it's called but it looks great!

Very nice job! Those black allen screws will rust in time. I wish Honda would bring the ct110 to the US.

One last thing...

Other thing recently done, but not documented... kreemed tank.
I notice there was a small leak running down the frame, almost where the SN number is. I was sure it would be one of the rubber hoses leakeng but to my surprise, it turned out to be "sweating" from one of the joint plates (really don't know what to call those), where the tanks get bolted to the frame, those ear-like pieces... well, you get the idea.
Did the whole Kreem thing... lot's of reading before i started, crossed my fingers, and 4 days later (had lots of rust) i ended up with a Kreemed tank.
It's been 5 days now with gas in it, and everything seem to be ok... only time will tell if i kreemed succesfully.

Oh, and I'll need new tires soon... damn money pit!

Yes they will... adding to the look of an old military bike!

Unlike with my airhead where i also used those bolts and don't add to the look of the bike.

Reading my last post... I'm actually planning on taking this little bike on trails, not only city streets, so any scrape, dents and scratches done while riding will only add "character" to the bike.
