1966 Honda CT90 Street Urchin

1966 Honda CT90 has roughly 1000 miles on the chassis.

Engine:
Stock engine was salvageable so a higher HP pitbike 140cc engine was sourced. Claims it makes 10-12hp, and feels like it.

Suspension:
Stock front suspension was ditched and an external front coilover setup was fabricated. This uses Vespa progressive coilovers on a leading arm setup.
Rear suspension maintains stock geometry which suits the bike great.

Body:
The factory rear fender was bobbed, hammered and welded to run a wider rear tire.
Everything was stripped down and I powdercoated the body in a two stage blue metallic.
The seat was stripped, powdercoated the frame then upholstered in cross-stitched perf vinyl with blue thread to match the body.
A simple “dash” was built to house the main ignition button.
A custom made headlight bracket/shroud was fabricated to clean up the front end, mount the headlight to and affix the handlebar mounts.

Wheels/Tires:
Factory wheels were tore down. I powdercoated the hubs, rims, spokes and nipples. Nipples were shot in a metallic blue. Everything was relaced with new bearings and hardware. New Michelin tires were installed.
The rear sprockets were both powdercoated, the trail sprocket was shot to match the body and the street sprocket is gloss black.

Electrics:
The whole bike was rewired to run a LED headlight and tail light.
A single ignition LED button is just under the triple clamp on the downtube and swtiches everything on.
A key switch is housed on one of the side covers where all wiring is hidden along with a fuse box.
I built a custom tail lamp mount to sit centered on the rear fender and uses a beautiful LED ATV tail light.
The headlight trim ring was coated to match the body.
