honda ct90

I might be getting my hands on a 1970 ct90, I have not seen the bike yet, but heres what im told.
1970 ct90 174 orig miles, orig owner, all paperwork including orig owners manual, gas tank was drained when it was put away 40 yrs ago in a nice dry garage.
question is...any idea how much this thing is worth? if I go pick it up,i wont even wipe it down, it'll be strictly resale. I'm not quite sure what to offer and what to ask for it. so any input would be appreciated thanx.

I good condition they can fetch $1500 around my area. Something that pristine might go for quite a bit more, but you'll probably still have to replace a lot of rubber parts. Tires, o-rings (carb esp.) etc. You might easily get $2500 out of it if the paint is pristine.

Use Searchtempest.com to look up prices.

If it has a title, that adds a lot to the value.

I picked up a 110 a few weeks ago, waiting on one last part before I dig into it all the way.

Already installed tires, ordered and received all the parts except one spacer that's discontinued and I paid double retail for a used on, but that's just how it goes sometimes.

Here is the recovered seat, I'm happy with it. And the other parts. Found a new chinese carb for under $25.00 delivered, worst case, I'll use some parts. Sure looks good though.

The CT's are bulletproof, they use them in Australia to deliver the may - they're nicknamed "Posties".

I've got to pull the clutch cover off mine and scruff up the plates, their slipping either from sitting or the PO used the wrong oil.

No big deal either way.

Factory service manuals are available on-line in .pdf format for free. I figured this out after I spent $35.00 on a new one.

Picked up a couple of nice fuel filters this afternoon, hope to start on it this weekend.

I hope it works out for you, should be a fun project.

And here is a link for the cheap chinese carb specific to your model I think - verify it first. And I've not tried mine yet to see if it's going to work, but it sure looks good!

Here is the faux-clone carb - note the name cast into it, try not to laugh at the blatant rip-off. I know, it's hard not too!

I tried one of those knock-off ebay chinese carbs on an old XR100 that had sat in a barn for 10 years.

Wouldn't you know it? Sucker fired up first kick and ran like a champ. $24. Cheaper as a whole than almost any single OEM part on that OEM carb.

Oh - I paid $425.00 for mine, and I've got to get a title. I think I paid too much as it has the clutch issues, needed this, that and the other thing, but it's not about the money to me, we're not talking any real money anyway.

Here is what NADA says about the 1970 CT90

Excellent $2,105
Very Good $1,360
Good $710
Fair $520
Poor N/A

Personally, I think they (NADA/KBB) have gone from one extreme to the other. They always used to be too low, now, well, they seem high...

I also need to take into consideration inflated internet prices, I would just like it to go to a good home and make a couple of bucks.
reality shows and internet have caused prices of ''barn finds'' to go out of control.

Here is one for $250.00 or a bundle of 6 for $900.00


List price in 1968 was $399.00

If you want to flip it, it's got a title, runs, and looks decent, you should be able to get $1200.00 for it, offer $400.00 and pay $600.00?

You're going to probably sit on it over the winter.

Maybe $1500.00 come spring.....

I dunno, everything could change in a heartbeat.....
