Yesterday at Emanuel Medical Center I parked next to this old beauty. This Honda 90 really brought back memories. As a teenager I rode around a little on a borrowed Honda 50. In those days the riding gear consisted of t-shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes.
At the time I thought the Honda 50 was pretty big. My dream bike then was a Honda Scrambler 250.
One of the guys I grew up with had a Honda 50 too so we would ride together. His dream bike was a Honda Superhawk 305.
Occasionally we'd have heated but friendly arguments on which bike was faster. One time in the heat of an argument I told him that Scramblers scramble the eggs that Superhawks lay. I don't know why I thought that 250cc's would be faster than 305 but we had fun discussions.
I looked up the 90 on Wikipedia. They were made between 1969 and 1979. This one is in pretty good shape considering it's between 30-40 years old.
I like the aftermarket cup holder too, and that's a clock down below. And the pilot light on top of the headlight told you if the high beam was on. Talk about old school!
When you compare this to the bikes that are around now it makes one wonder what motorcycles will be like in the future.
