Yes you can!

Not only riding the TAT in the reverse direction but also building the bikes you are gonna ride it with?

Sure beats spending 20k for a shiny German machine and no doubt makes for 100 times more fun and one heck of an adventure.

Damn boys... good deal! I applaud you...

Honda Corporate Sponsorship

Have you thought about asking Honda to sponser this ride. Pocket change in big corporate budget. I would use the Environmental Responsibility angle to sell them. Imagine all the big adventure bikes that do that 4000 plus miles of the TAT burning gas at the rate of 35 MPG? You guys will do it on 1/3 that. Maybe they can replace your gas guzzling van with a Prius

Seat covers

I use the Walmart ATV seat cover on my CT. It is large and I use the extra to go up the front of the basket I have zipped onto my luggage rack. It was under $20 and I don't know if they still carry it. Here is a link from the ct90 website that shows a picture of it:

http://hondatrailcts.yuku.com/topic/3758#.UYUpM8rgVq0

I too use an XR250 tank for extended range. Most of the guys relocate the key to use the tank but I use it infrequently so I just unplug the ignition key and connect (hotwire) the ignition on when using it.

I still have the original engine but ran a Chinese carb for two years. Only problem that I had was one time when riding the idle jet unscrewed and fell into the bowl.

Good luck and I wish I was there riding along.

The van - classic. You might want to change all rubber (belts and hoses) before the trip even if they look good. Cheap insurance against two of the top 4 reasons to breakdown (gas and flats).

Another interesting link you might like is from the Aussie Postie Ride where they ride across Australia on ct110s:

Once again, nothing has been a direct bolt on for this engine swap. The carb either hits the back bone or the right skidplate support. Cut away the skidplate and will reweld a new one in.

CT90 fender mounted a bit lower than stock on the XL125 front forks. This will allow more suspension travel than with the fender mounted at stock height.

Swapped out the old hub for a newer style. Two reasons, this style allows for the brake cable to enter from the top of the hub compared to the earlier models that had to loop around to the rear of it causing a large loop in the cable. Second reason is so we all have the same hub set up so all parts are the same and interchangeable.
