    Gear Change Pedal Recall on some units (slowly rolling out to different countries?)

    I still haven’t gotten a letter yet but I’m not to concerned about it right now. My left leg broke before the shifter did😁.

    Greetings from Germany

    Welcome Hans. It’s worth a shot at trying to import one. I’d contact Seven Seas in the UK and see if they have a German contact that may help. I lived in Furth/Nurnberg for 3 years back in the ‘80’s. I had a blast.

    Recommendations for fuel additive/stabilizer for 4- 6-month storage and battery tender recommendations?

    Another option on gas is aviation fuel (AV) if you have access to it or, if you have a Sunoco station in Hawaii, see if they can get you a can of leaded 110 octane. They sell it but it’s pricey. The most economical option is what m in sc stated.

    I’m so on the fence….

    I truly understand your concerns about “speed and power” and think the Trail 125 may not be the bike that you are looking for. It’s a nimble bike with adequate speed for enjoying those quiet Sunday mornings on dirt roads and country byways that many of us reminisce about riding 40 years ago. It...

    Look what I found .....

    Hauled these home today. A literal barn find. They had been sitting untouched since 1985. The red frame is a ‘71 CB 100.

    Roxanne took me out on a date

    I try to avoid the main National Forest area because it’s so popular now. Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s you could ride all day there and rarely meet anyone. I do mostly country paved/dirt roads when I can but I never really know where I’ll end up. I need to plan a few routes through rural...

    Roxanne took me out on a date

    What a beautiful day in the Uwharrie region in NC! After helping out some friends this morning I was gonna take my 125 (Eileen) for a spin but Roxanne looked a little jealous. She sallied on faithfully.

    How do you plan to use your CT?

    I also think you will enjoy it! It is a great do-all bike (except I would avoid major highways if possible) Mine is just for cruising dirt backroads, paved secondary roads. The more I ride mine, the more I like it. I have done NONE of the normal mods yet (except I did install a magnetic oil...

    I wonder why....

    Why did Honda make the cargo rack backwards as compared to all other CT’s? The raised portion should be at the back instead of under your tailbone. Can’t really turn it around and keep it secure because you would lose 2 mounting points at the top of the rear shocks. I’m gonna ponder...

    Plastic engine sidecover replacement’s?

    For some reason, that plastic cover bothers the crap outta me. Does anyone know of a descent metal replacement?

    What name did you give your ride?

    I’ve named mine Eileen. She does wear a pretty red dress.....

    Look what I found .....

    Picked up this ‘72 Mars Orange CT90 earlier this week. 749 original miles. Got a great deal in it. She was made in Dec. 1971. After a few minor adjustments she’s running like a sewing machine.

    Short ride in the sand.

    I hit a place around Candor, NC many years ago on another bike that was terrible. Riding wide open on a trail and right into an area at the bottom of a hill where loose sand had washed down and built up to what seemed to be 2ft deep. Stopped me in my tracks, bottomed out, and caught hell for a...

    Look what I found .....

    These things are a rare find here in NC. I’ve been looking for a 110 for probably 8 years and haven’t even seen one. The closest I’ve come was an older 90 that was a rotten bare frame. The engine was there but somebody took the head off of it years ago , lost it, and left the bike outside...

    Look what I found .....

    And after nearly a week of negotiations, I bought them early this morning. The back one is a ‘79 trail 90 with less than 800 miles and the other is an ‘81 trail 110 with less than 1200 miles. Engines are free and everything seems to be there except a missing mirror on the 90. Got me a winter...

    Who's got one on order? And more importantly, what news have you heard?

    bigcanoe, see my post above. I paid a total of $4295.76 in Rockingham, NC this past Monday. No freight charge, no set up b.s. BUT, I do understand how hard it is to get one. Took me 10 months. If you want it, get it. The dollar buys less and less everyday so at least you will have a tangible...

    Colors - Red vs. Brown?

    I like the red. I had an ‘80 model 110 when I was a strapping young 13/14 year old and I don’t remember it being as red as the 125. This thing is RED! I originally leaned toward the tan as it kinda matched my Tacoma (quicksand) but I’m completely satisfied with the red.
