The Honda CT-90 was a 90cc 4-stroke OHC dual-purpose motorcycle made by Honda from 1966 through 1979 using styling cues from its smaller brother, the Honda C105T. It had a unique step-through design which remained during the run of the motorcycle. The seat accomodated one person and it came equipped with a generous storage rack behind the seat. It is perhaps one of Honda's hidden success stories, this bike sold well worldwide and has a faithful following to this day.
