Default The 1962-1965 C105H/C105T/CA105T "Trail 55"

Every time I see one of these it brings back memories of my early days of motorcycling. So I just had to post some funny stuff and some pictures.

Here is from a show that Motorcycle USA covered recently.
The show pictures here.

Ugh ... what did they do to that poor little Honda? I guess I am too old to appreciate it.

I actually like the stretched posties. I've got a Ct90 with Ca95 engine set aside for just such a project.Talk about uncomfortable though- just a styling exercise.

Post all your CT50 / CT55 picks here boys. Unless you are restoring one then you can have your own thread. They are cool little bikes. I never thought I would see the day when people started stretching them!

Great ... so I've also insulted Larz. In my defense, I posted my comment before I had my coffee. Very cranky.

I get a back ache just looking at these stretched bikes.

Ah, Kev,
I'm not offended at all. Just to prove it here's my C105- looking for a motor-the engine in the pic was from c102? and when to a guy Oz for more than the bike was worth (wrong engine anyway).
I also think this has a dealer installed fender I've not seen b4 and cool stickers that I'm quite certain were the "speed" secret for some kid a long time ago. Wrong seat too.
Oh, did I it say it fast, like Weber powered fast...

I was at a motorcycle graveyard last week. Just LOOK at all those Honda Trail motorcycles just begging for a restoration! I'm sure they can be had for a price! haha

Geez how do they the grass to grow...
Every yard I'm ever in is usually a toxic dump and nothing grows but rats and snakes.
There are some stories in that picture for sure....
