Hi everyone

Im a new member to this forum, I joined as there seems to be a large community surrounding c90 riders and I was hoping a could gain some knowledge / future riding mates. I've been riding motorbikes since I was 17, though I'm just coming back after 2 year break after a bad off on the motorway involving an Audi whos driver was looking for a CD in the glove box.

I bought a BMW R80 1980 which I've been restoring slowly (You can follow my progress with that on Instagram "forgotten_steel" if your interested however I have always fancied owning a Honda C90 after watching C90 adventures on youtube as I like the light weight nature of the bike and basic mechanics.

Due to my nature of buying absolute nuggets when it comes to vehicles you will lightly see me in posts attempting to fix the cub when I've purchased one. Also if you local to Portsmouth I have a welder and some other power tools more that happy to lend a hand on other peoples bikes.

Good luck with your search, Henry.

Aim for early August 2020 and you'll have a great weekend of Cubbing in the Isle of Wight to look forward to.

I'm on the island a lot as I'm helping mate fix up a Nissan Figaro, but would be very up for some what I can assume is some sort of motorbike weekend in August what's the event ?

I'll have to let you know when I've bought one so you can swing by also willing for someone to led a hand.

Found one in Chippenham, 1994 with 2 engines and few boxes of parts. You know your doing it right if it comes with boxes of parts aha.
