1990 Honda C90 Cub
A remarkable machine
It has had a battery, exhaust pip and a headlight bulb. I have changed the rear suspension bushes and it has had 2 chains and 1 sprocket set.
The seat is cracking and it is going rusty, but it gets used every day, no matter what the weather.
I love my little 90. It has been so reliable and cheap to run. It handles poorly, stops eventually and wouldn't pull your hat off. But it always starts and runs really well.
I use it to commute on everyday, come rain, shine or snow. I do do a bit of low speed touring on it, and have covered over 100 miles in a day on several occasions, albeit slowly, but hey, where's the fire!
It's been a good little bike and has earnt me 4 years of protected no claims. I just hope I've not been too late with the Wax Oil...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I have one of these fantastic machines, and find it enough for me. I am 76 years old, and it gets me down to get my pension, and shopping, and on the weekend I visit my ladyfriends, bookmaker, and of course the pub. I usually spend 6 quid a week on petrol, and it burns no oil. I am also very safe in the knowledge that I WILL NEVER EVER BE PULLED ON THIS BIKE!

WOW! Wish I could match you NOW, with the plural 's' in ladyfriends, never mind when I'm 76!!!
(Are you sure it's a C90 you're 'pulling' them with?)
I bought a 2003 C90 and find the flashing roadside 40mph signs screaming back SLOW DOWN. So, I guess the later models are the ones to go for, if you want to get pulled over.
Just imagine the scene: "Why so glum"
"I got nicked for speeding on my C90 - again!"
"Hooligan! Time you traded down to a 50cc mate".

I have rode my bike back from Pub every day for 12 years day and night in all sorts of conditions and I never ever get pulled over!

Hello fellow biker's.. I have a BMW 1150 GS ADV and a Honda 90 1993 Cub. I use the works Honda every day going to work and general duties.
The works Honda puts a smile on my face. The wee bike is awesome. Flat out at 45 can't be bad.
This bike will go on forever. Long live the C90.

I picked up a C90 cub with 20,000 miles on it for £300, and am off to Italy on it in August. Can anyone advise on a low pass through the alps avoiding motorways, for obvious reasons. Thanks.

At the moment I never want to part with my C90. Yes I've had a big bike, but just no room on the road anymore. Stick to old faithful; just goes forever...
