Take one field, 3 peds and a group of blokes old enough to know better...
We managed to kill one of the 90s on the way leaving just two bikes but that didn't stop the carnage.
And they're off!
Ade on the inside line
Mud cooling for the Honda C90, works a treat
We thrashed the peds for an entire afternoon without a single breakage only for the sump plug to fall out of mine on the way home. Only a C90 could manage a the last mile of a journey without oil. The best bit is that even though she seized solid, I know that a bit of fresh oil and she'll be as good as new!

Time for the race tuning to get serious!
Dave's got himself a thumpster/xsport carb + filter, seems to be a fair bit faster
I've managed to blag myself a 26mm Mikuni with big bore manifold, way way too big for the motor but hey. Fitting it took my top speed from about 50mph to 25mph, not good!
Removing the pair of tights that I had used as a filter solved the problem....
Adding a proper filter has given me an indicated top speed of 60 mph!
We braced her at the same time and added a different fuel tank, I really didn't think that it could have looked any more stupid.
Full story is on my C90 page

Another outing on the peds, shame they're not submersible!
Sure I could have helped.....
The Honda C90 might not be waterproof but it can certainly jump!
Depending on the rider of course.....
and the ability of someone to capture the proof.
Unfortunately, all this stupidity was only going to end in tears.
Dave managed to break BOTH of his rear shocks, other casualties included a flattened downpipe, two snapped exhaust studs , one gear change lever, a horn (??) and our of course our pride.
Evil Knievel even managed to bend his frame, it's not all bad, he's now the owner of a custom, low rider Honda C90 cub!
Serve's em both right for buying the Cub 90 instead of the real thing, the only damage to mine was cosmetic, she's invincible!
