Hi from Australia

Hi All,

recently took delivery of a C90. Approx 1967? trying to work out what year it is. One owner and she cant remember when she bought it brand new :lol:

It has been under a tarp for 47 years at least!

I am looking for some parts, specifically a speedo cable and mirrors. Any good suppliers recommended?

Hi, new member here also, in the UK the go to place for Original Honda spares are David Silver Spares or in Europe CMSNL.com
I guess you will have similar suppliers down under, bike looks amazing for sitting so long.
Good luck reviving her.

Welcome, That looks really nice!

Bit of an obvious question but have you tried SC Moto? Appreciate that they are best known for Postie parts (I've had stuff from them) but they have been known to get Cub parts apparently. Might save horrendous carriage charges but as said CMSNL/Silvers/Wemoto or even Webike Japan. Mirrors are pretty universal though and looks like there are a couple of acceptable versions on eBay aus.

Although I'm in the UK and have Cubs I also have a 1972 CT90 at my son's house near Melbourne, not seen it for 3 years sadly but kept it rego'd for my next 3 month stay. I have a list of parts I'll be bringing over as there are some items just as easy to get in the UK. Including EBC grooved brake shoes, a worthwhile mod to any Cub (any brake improvement is worthwhile). Hopefully they will improve the posties abysmal brakes.

Good luck!

If for nothing else CMSNL is a great site to obtain part numbers which you can then google to find other suppliers.
