Default Saved! Honda C110 Custom

This is exactly why one should always be equipped with a loading ramp and a set of tie downs in a truck. This bike was going to be retired to who-knows-where but I saved it with some quick footwork. There are endless possibilities for restoring this bike. I'm thinking more of a custom rebuild but I'm not sure. It gives me something to think about though! My Ol' Dodge
pickup is surely coming in handy. It's a true motorcycle hauler just as I intended.

I'm sure there are some stories behind the miles on this classic.

She came with a box of side covers and the tank, all in good shape!

Some closer side shots. Exhaust is in pretty good shape actually. There isn't any big damage to the bottom of the engine or any cooling fins broken off. The Honda c110 is in better shape than I imagined.

The square head reminds me of my friend Maico.

Is that wiring harness stock?
Did the Benly get its stamped steel frame idea from that bike or vice versa?
Interesting little thing, thanks for sharing.

The early Benly and Dreams had stamped frames as early as in the 50's. A very economical production method for sure.Ryan bike is basically a Cub with a stamped backbone vs the stepthru tube.
@ Ryan and S90 tank should do wonders for that bike- How about an update?

That wiring harness is Good Ol' aMerican know-how and I'm sure is easy to service like a tractor. You know I have that extra CB160 tank I might just have to utilize on this project. I'm sure the thing will just fire right up. It's on the list of to-do's for sure. My neighbor just pulled out his "motorcycle in a suitcase" classic. It's called a Go-Devil (click link) . I'm going to tinker with that this afternoon. This thing is sitting in my garage right now. I have never seen one before so I have to try this out first.
