Thank you.

I’ve had this link open for a few days ready
http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/honda/c_90_t_cub/96-03/
:D

I will order a few parts when I’ve gone over and checked the bike. I know I need a new rear indicator bracket, but need to check if it is short or long version.

Finally had a chance to look at the cub tonight. Now sat on the workbench in pieces.

Lots of corrosion underneath :shock:
But salvageable. Will patch/tidy up parts for now, get it working for this year, ideally June 1st.

Rear tyre looks ok, Front has great tread but cracked sidewalls, so unlikely to pass an MOT.

Going to order a list of parts from Wemoto tonight, inc pattern legsheild and other small parts.

Great thread, welcome! :D

You can chuck away that carb insulating gasket when it arrives.... no one uses them, especially in winter. Ok if you're in the Far East! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just looking around the farm at the old CUBs.
Might see if we can get any back on the road. Maybe for a bobber/cafe racer style bike.

So from the original photos I posted in Jan 2017x the blue one is a C90 HA02-1417966
Red C70 and Red C50.
Also just found an early C90 round headlight with switch behind. Key on the side cover vin C90EA051***

It’s early C70 in gun metal grey with red dog carrier between the legs I remember him driving as a kid.... complete with numberplate
He has just said I can have it!!! 😮

Hmmm there is a chance the Grey Bike VDL860K is not the original one registered to that plate, my uncle remembers the red one breaking and replacing it with the grey one :o

In other good news, my other uncle has shown me KDL 237W which is a Blue single seat 1980 C50L complete with Plate and keys I can get road worthy

Red C50 is vin 5449651

Yep, VDL 860K shown as red on DVLA. At least they are on there, makes recommissioning them a lot easier. :D
