Honda CL90

From CycleChaos

The Honda CL90 was a 4-stroke 90cc OHC motorcycle built by Honda between 1967 and 1969. The CL designation indicated this model to be the "Scrambler" version which implied some off-road capability prior to actual dirt-bikes gaining popularity. The CL series of bikes were actually street bikes with a higher rear fender, a braced handlebar, and a high-mount exhaust.

It appears that Honda quit making the CL90 in favor of the Honda CL70 which met many states laws requiring bikes to have 5 horsepower or less for restricted licenses (age 15). The below mentioned CL90L was already designed for that purpose.
