Default Garage find Honda

My brother found this Honda in a garage not far from us and figure I take a ride. We ended up picking up a very nice 1 owner 110 with low miles. Has the high low range which is a plus. Interesting factory auxiliary fuel tank also. Spent some time with it and he had it running. Purrs like a kitten. Kinda getting harder to find these older Honda’s in decent condition. I can remember back in the day when they were everywhere, starting to get like a needle in the haystack! Don’t see many around anymore.

I have had two of those , the older 90 c.c. models , they are a lot of fun to ride and use . That low rang will surprise you with the climbing . You made a great find / deal there . Have fun with it .

Andrew, I once found a young woman! But she didn't get along with my taste of old iron. Pop, tells me to keep looking, at the retirement homes that is.

Years ago when I was in the bike biz a guy came rolling in in a CT110. An older semi disabled guy that was living in an Air Force retired assisted living home somewhere in the eastern states. This guy was doing a tour to Alaska then Mexico on this 40 mph bike.

He stopped in for a rear tire that was down to the cords and I noticed it had like 20,000 miles on it. It was a bit wheezy so just to fuel his passion I tossed a set of rings in it and touched up the valve seats as a freebie. Hell, it only took a couple hours and about $20 out if the till. About a year later I got a post card from him. He made the trip and the bike had like 35,000 miles on it.

When in the bike biz we often marveled at how much grunt these things must have in lo-lo. One day we had our chance and for a grin one of my guys took a CT110 and hooked it to a customer's single axle dump truck. These typically weigh 13-15,000 empty. The bike pulled it on the flat concrete street and he got it into 2nd which might be 10 mph.

We never had a chance to see if it would pull it loaded but I doubt it.

30-maybe 40 years ago mom was good friends with an irish "Padre" (that is a priest in gringo lingo) that rode a little Honda across Africa saving souls, he even got chased by a herd of elephants on that thing. He wrote a book about his travels, pretty sure I have a copy, cannot remember if I ever read it. Trying to remember title, something like "where elephants walk", maybe roam, I forget.
