C90 wanted

Post by Perran » Tue Jun 12, 2018 12:52 am

please bare with me as I am new to the forum.
I am looking at buying a c90 . Not to perfect but useable. I am very interested in customising one .
Maybe 125,140 or 190 geared engine.
Something to match my vw van ?
I hope this is the right forum for honest information and help and maybe go to a local meet ? I am in the north west ie lancashire.

welcome Perran, 90's are getting harder to find, and going up in value, and IMO are overpriced. Maybe this is because many good original examples are being butchered,, I mean customised. ;) with purchace price and parts to customise including a new bigger engine I hope you have a thick wallet . an easier way might to look for an innova, which will have van van performance from stock.
Hope this helps, keep an eye out for ride outs from Rivington, you will be more than welcome and have a great day.

Hi Perran, and welcome.

Just keep doing the rounds of eBay. As 'horobags' says, some are inflated by bidding frenzies, but there always seems to be a bargain to be had. I recently paid £900 for an '86 model and was offered £1100 the next day. I am presently doing a minor restoration to original specs.

I would love to do a Repsol version, but would probably be booted off the forum quick smart!! :o

If you want to do a custom then I may be stating the obvious, but you want to find a real roughen for cheap which has already chopped itself about making your job a lot easier and cheaper!

Good luck finding a bike.

If you buy one that already been chopped or bobbed then they usually go for half the cost of an MOT'd 'rough un'.

Matching Cub and VW van? Good idea for long distance and a half decent top speed. :lol:
