Yes, bike mentioned by 125ercrazy and Bikerbaker is still for sale. Not advertised elsewhere yet but maybe soon.

1 Unsold on Mathewsons site from yesterdays auction, obviously you would need to arrange a collection.

Thanks for all the replies Southend is a bit too far ( used to be mornings run when I was on the lorries!) guess I’ll keep looking and take my toolbox with me. I figured if I fold the rear seats and passenger seat down I’d be able to squeeze one in hopefully from a bit closer. Or just spend a bit more and get a runner.
I was in a similar position, lurking on here and hoping to find the right C90 locally.

It took 4 years! The market was a bit less seller-biased then, too.

Frankly, if there's an honest 12V C90 available at a decent price, involving a 5/6 hour round trip, I'd be picking a day soon and going for it.

Bear in mind though, that if you take up bikerbaker's offer of assistance, something hilarious will occur ... and he'll be filming it! :lol:

Ta for all the replies, I’ll keep looking and be patient…. Anyway thinking of expanding my searches to other small bikes up to 125cc anything heavier would be a problem as I’m waiting for my knees to be fixed. Loads of Chinese stuff about new and used But I’ve alway been sceptical with build quality and reliability I’ll get mrs Dilbert to look on Facebook marketplace I’m not on there myself

Word to the wise, scammers now using cloned C90 ads on FB. Always check the profile, if there’s dozens of vehicles for sale it’s almost certainly a scam.
