1975 Honda ST 90

Photos: 5
Purchased: Jun 2001
Sold: Oct 2009
Info: Made 3 years only, 1973-1975. Basicly a Honda 90 engine in a Honda 70 frame. A street legal 90, gets about 95mpg. 3 speed tranny is a big minus, Honda should have used the 4 speed from the CT90 or CT200. Mine is pictured with a cherry condition 1979 CT90, last year for the 89cc I believe. Sold for 1250.
1973 Suzuki TS 185

Purchased: Apr 1973
Sold: Aug 1980
Info: My first street legal dual-sport. Had the crank stuffed, head decked, and bored 3cc over to 186 with expansion chamber, stock pipe rotted out after only a year. Snuf-R-Not and compression release. Loved this 2 smoke. Wheelie''d easily thru first 3 gears, and bounced up in 4th. Notice the straight rear fender has come back into style on current dual-sport machines. Only took Honda 10 years.
1970 Honda CT 70

Purchased: Apr 1970
Sold: Jun 1972
Info: First bike I bought new, made payments thanks to parents co-sign, and paper-route. Flogged it relentlessly to keep up with buddies CT90''s and Yamaha 125''s. Traded it off for a CL160. What a mistake.
