It took me 6 days to ride a C90 (25 years old) in 2000, from Salford to Portsmouth (where the ferry does not go to Santander) to Cain (France) and through to Villamoura and Moto 2000 in Faro. Then 3 days to get to Gibraltar, where the police locked me up for being drunk (I had exhaustion), I used the bike as bail (150 quid) and absconded.
1986, my first c70 I put 28000 miles on it and it still was going as strong as ever, cost little to run and look after, and only the chain and sprockets had to be changed. This was only because I thrashed it every day, but this rock of a motor just goes and goes on forever.
I would like to know if anyone in the USA has a C90 for sale? If any of you have pictures of it, I would like to them.
I love this motorcycle. Although what I really have is the C100 which was released sometime 96-97 (the bigger brother as you may call it). Until now I still use it and my oh my, it has continued to be as reliable as ever.
No overhauls, no major repairs. Just the usual tune up & change oil etc. I can't even believe the minimal wear & tear on the piston.
Of course I have made some "cosmetic" changes like alloy rims etc. Sort of reciprocating what the bike has done for me.
What would a 1986, with 900 original miles, in perfect condition, that was serviced each year, be worth in US dollars?
