I am thinking about picking up a '68 CT90 K0, not running but with title. It was used as a hunting vehicle and hence has been painted camo (which I don't mind) and has had the signals and taillight removed. It currently doesn't run, but just needs some tinkering. The price is right, but I'm thinking since its not original anyway, that I may as well do a resto-mod type of build with a 140 gpx or something along those lines. I would want to register it for the street (pretty easy in TX with a title and bill of sale, not too mention it considered an 'antique'). Does anybody with knowledge of this model know if this would work or not? The dual range trans is all there and works, but a 140 would be way more streetable in my opinion. Let me know what your opinions are.



Thanks

Ryan

Besides converting it to 12V, why else is it not a good bike? I'm sure I have the capability of getting the stock engine running, and the bike comes with a bunch of spares. Was the K0 the only model that didn't have conventional telescoping forks? Thanks for the input.



Oh, and I wouldn't bother with the paint probably, just leave it camo. It will see some time on my father-in-law's deer lease anyhow. My uses would be a trail bike, but possibly some trail to trail street riding/grocery getting. What would you consider cheap?

Well it recently ran, but appears to just need a good tune up (set the valves, new plug, clean/rebuild carb). I'm pretty sure you can put the 110 top end on the ct90 judging by the parts that DrAtv carries for them. It actually has a California title, but the seller is asking a few more bills than that with a heap of spare parts. I have confidence in my ability to tear down and diagnose/rebuild the engine if necessary. It would need at least new tires as well. Thanks for your input
