S90. Highly collectible.
Good luck with the carb and gas tank as they'll likely be crudded up, otherwise it should fire right up. Nice flowers! Certifies that it was 1960's hippie owned.

it sat for 35yrs. was luck to find it had no fuel in it. the tank is clean. I'm sure the carb will need cleaning anyway. I had it started with either for a few seconds enough not to put a hole in the piston. has a few acorns spit across the ground. the sticker says gene mcgarthy! old politics. yes a hippy runner. lol here is a pic of our other 90 we have that both will sit aside. this bike was pretty much in the same cond

I've had a couple of these back in the '60's & can say the 90 MPG is very realistic for this bike........But the 65 MPH would be quite a stretch, Unless downhill with a pretty good tailwind.

65mph is scary to even think about with one of these. The smaller 90 (cleaner bike) has 2 sprockets on it. 1 for trail, other for hwy.

Wow, that's neat! I remember as a kid people had the Trail 70s and 50s. Those were neat too!

I'm constantly amazed at the sort of stuff that is coming out of old schools these days!! None of the schools I attended had Anything anywhere near as neat as stuff like this!!

I don't know if it's where I went to school or when lol.

I remember those also......In the tool kit you had a short length of chain {4-6 links} that you would put in when wanting the "Road" sprocket.

The earlier trail bikes like this CT110 and the CT90 had the two sprockets. A couple years later they went to one sprocket and a hi/low secondary gearbox.

A little 90 I had a couple of years ago. An SL90 only produced in one year, 1969. As far as I know it was the only 90 with a tube frame. This one was painted the wrong color, they only came in red or blue.
