Honda C90 on ebay......£5000 !!! Really ?

Post by joeloss1 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:32 am

I know the C90 has developed a status now that it didn't have 10/15 years ago but £5k ??!! (alright low-mileage and lovely but £5k ?)
mack13440 has listed it.
£2500 is absolutely top money surely ? Even that seems alot really.
I'm still looking for a tidy one. I sold a beautiful 1972 C50 for £1600 a few months ago but the 50 is just a little too slow,I thought.
It seems like tidy C90s with no problems(rot etc) are between £700 and £1200.
Have a good day.

It's done 82 miles, it's in pretty much original condition (apart from having been waxoyled from new) and they aren't bothered if they sell it or not.

Anything is worth what someone will pay. That's the reality of a free market economy. 8-)

Finally got the photos up on their site ,is that an odd colour and should the sticker on the chain guard say tyre information not tire ?
And of course no shot of the number plate so you could check out the history.

I must agree, the colour seems different, my mate has a 2001 bike with a genuine 585miles ,and it is not the same as his .

Before anyone asks, as I've been sworn to secrecy I know someone with two very late c90's still in the original packing crates never opened ;)

I asked them whether it was a USA import, given the, "Tire" sticker.

This is what came back:-

"No this bike is a uk one I have the original purchase invoice with it. Its like brand new we have never seen one of these this clean!!!!!"

There are folks who would prefer one great, well sorted one over a multitude of rough ones. That is their market.

Whether they will attract that market with this bike I really don't know. Too many things don't add up.
