More Motorcycle Madness!

1972 Honda Trail 90

Another day, another set of bikes for your review. Oh, the 70’s and the Honda CT 90s, what fun! Listed here on craigslist is this two owner 1972 Honda Trail  CT90 for $2K. You will find this bike in Barnhart (not Barn Find) Missouri. Oh wouldn’t it be great to live in a city named Barn Find…?'72 Trail 90 left

Along with the price being $2K, that is also happens to be the mileage on the bike. The yellow paint is factory original and the gray was updated at some point to blue. This bike is said to be all in order with all systems “go”. This is a good looking CT90, don’t you think?

'70 Moped

Here is a package deal for you. These “bikes” are sitting somewhere west of St. Louis, Missouri. This package is listed here on craigslist for you review and the contact information. The seller says these are “2 VINTAGE 1970 MOPEDS” with an asking price of $650 for the pair.

'70 Mopet

One is a Honda Trail 90, yes another one, and the second one, according to the seller, is a Mopet.

This package is a two vehicle project, neither one of these are in running condition. Hopefully they will be easy to get running! With some work, you might be able to sell one to pay for the other.

'80 CT70

We are still on that mostly “Honda” theme. Here is a 1980 Honda CT 70 which is listed here on craigslist. You will find this CT70 is sitting in Marion, Illinois. If you wish to take this 2,800 mile bike home it appears you will need $1,700 and be ready to hand the Benjamins over.

'56 BSA DB 34

Now we turn the page back in time. How about a 1956 BSA Gold Star DB 34? Yes you will need a bigger stack of cash to get to play with this BSA. It is parked in Jefferson City, Missouri with a $14K OBO price. You will find the listing here on craigslist.

This was an ’80’s build. There are some chips and nicks on the frame. This is a titled and running bike. If you don’t wish to get pulled over right away you should remount the tail lamp though. There are 18 images with the ad if you are interested. If you don’t have the “big bucks” now and you want to ride one of these this spring, then maybe the 1st CT90 makes the most sense. But, then again, you can pick up the project-pair for $650. What to do? What are your thoughts?

Motor-on,
Robert

    This is what I wanna do with one of these; I’ve had for years a 1992 model CT70 but its too good to cut up. These larger ones are everywhere cheap. I like this bobber/dirt kind of thing and think of the weight loss !

    again…

    A friend was going to give me his old Honda Trail. He called his mom to tell her that I was coming by to get it. She told him that she had given it away years ago. Maybe he should have visited his mom more often? :-)

    ~ I DO live in a town named Barn[hart] Finds!!! This first bike, Honda Trail 90 is maybe 2+/- miles from the house. My RVs are parked or this would be a great little pit bike for the race track.

    all interesting but at least 3 of them are to slow for todays traffic and the bsa has the gearshift on the right and rear brake on the left ( been there done that, not ever doing it again ). still like the idea of review different bikes. spring coming and Bikeweek starts in 2 weeks, i think. great fun.

      The reverse set up shouldn’t be a deal breaker. I had a moto Morini that came from UK. First few seconds would be a bit difficult (sometimes I would switch bikes during the day) but after that it was the same as on my ‘regular’ bikes. It’s like learning to write with the right and left hand, but not at the same time ;-)

    love the Honda 90 and the 70 is nice. I have had 20 + of these and love them . Now I have a early 80s 110 that I like the best. It still will run when the battery is dead,big bonus.I have a qa 50 stuffed away that I have not looked at in 5 years. I should dig it out and put it back together. fun simple bikes.

      erikj,
      In Australia we call the Honda 110 a Postie bike, every postal carrier rides one with 2 big bags mounted over the back wheel and a bag in between the grips on the handle bars full of mail. Currently a very good condition 110 will bring about 2 to 3 grand Aus. they all seem to have about 35,000 kms. on them so perhaps that’s when the Post Office gets rid of them.
      Tony
