    My first bike was a Honda CT90 and I've been on the hunt for a nice used one for years with no luck. So I was pretty excited to hear that Honda maybe releasing a modern version of it. Only concept at this point but if they release it and it comes to Canada I'll be getting one. Would still rather an original but a new one would be pretty cool. I think they did a great job keeping the original styling.

    My brother had a ST90. Back in the day, he was stopped by the cops for 'racing'. Cops called my dad to come pick him up....and my dad removed the back seat of the car and put the bike in the back seat!

    Ha ha, awesome. I was never chased by the cops on mine but I remember a motorcycle cop chasing a few other guys, he went up over the curb and did a bit offroading too. We mainly stuck to offroad but had to ride on the street for a bit to get there ;)

    I haven't been this pumped about a bike since I found my MB5 for sale. If this doesn't come to Canada I will be seriously disappointed (the new Super Cub and Monkey bikes have still not been released here). Need to start finishing and selling projects to get the funds ready, will sell the Africa Twin if I have too :)

    I have one ..the 1970 model came equipped with a Hi/LO gear selector just behind the shifter. Very fun to ride-and you can pick it up to carry over a log or put in the truck. It was yellow originally,and star IMG_3443.JPG ted life as an Ontario Hydro vehicle , used to check power lines off road etc before the days of ATVs .
    The '70 model was technologically advanced with that HiLo range switch as the '69 model had the available option of a little kit containing a larger rear sprocket and a small length of extra chain. The print ad is fun...shows a guy on his CT90 with a fishing creel and a deer slung over the cargo rack ...
    after a Day in the Woods you just need to " simply change the rear sprocket " and "merely add a few links to the chain " and you're ready for the open road to home.
    These little bike were also used to deliver mail in Australia- they're called "Posties " or "Postie bikes "down there

    Awesome, very cool you have one. I'm sure there are more around the island but you rarely see any around or for sale. I've heard great things about the hi/lo gearing, would be cool if the new one came with it as well but highly doubt it. Wish I knew more details about the one I had but I was pretty young at the time, remember it being very fun though.
