1967 Honda CL90, S90 Motorcycle Build

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.

  1. I like the "springer" front leading-link - a.k.a. Cub forks! I'm currently restoring a 1968 CL90, and it's also the "electric blue" as your frame is. I'm gonna keep the original telescopic forks on mine, buy kudos to you for finding a great use for an abandoned set of Cub forks. Be sure to post photos of the finished project!
