1967 Honda CL90 Motorcycle Build, Mixing CL90 Parts with S90 Parts

Here is an update to my CL90 build. I located a nice S90 gas tank but that forces me to use an S90 front fork. I found the triple trees but needed forks. I once again found CT90 forks that fit the bill but it looks like I might need a custom front wheel spacer. Here are the pictures.

I found another motorcycle project that is turning out to look pretty nice. I started with a 1967 CL90 frame. I was able to add a CA200 front fork assembly too it. When it came time to find a gas tank for it, I found a Honda S90 gas tank that turned out to be in really good shape. I got an excellent price for it and then realized that if I want to use the S90 tank then I am going to need the S90 front forks for it. I looked into finding a CL90 gas tank but they are hard to find in good shape without paying an arm and a leg for them. Here are some pictures of the project now.

1983 Honda C70 Passport Super Cub 100 MPG, Miles per Gallon

Here is my super gas mileage champ, a 1983 Honda C70 Passport Cub. It is reported to get 100 mpg and I believe it. I just ran it out of gas after filling it over three months ago. I was just using it to make test drives around the neighborhood. It is almost complete with the leg shields in place. All that I am missing are the mirrors and a front fender. I will have to modify a front fender to fit the oversized 2.75" x 17" tires that are on them The tires are the popular Michelin Gazelles. They have been great tires with excellent grip and a solid road feel.Here is my latest picture of it.
