The '''[[Honda]] CL100''' was a 4 stroke single cylinder motorcycle sold by [[Honda|American Honda Co]] in the U.S. in the early seventies. The CL designation indicated this model to be the "Scrambler" version which implied some off-road capability. (This was before real dirt-bikes were gaining popularity.) It was really just a street bike with a higher rear fender, a braced handlebar, and a high-mount exhaust.

The '''[[Honda]] CL100''' was a [[Four stroke|4-stroke]] [[single cylinder]] [[street motorcycle]] sold by [[Honda|American Honda Co]] in the U.S. in the early 1970s. The CL designation indicated this model to be the "Scrambler" version which implied some off-road capability. (This was before real dirt-bikes were gaining popularity.) It was really just a street bike with a higher rear fender, a braced handlebar, and a high-mount exhaust.  
 
  
 
The CL100 was a full-featured motorcycle with a 100 cc 4 stroke engine 5-speed transmission with manual clutch, high mount exhaust with chrome heat-shield, full electrical system, including headlight (hi/lo beam), taillight, brakelight, turn-signals, horn, speedometer with neutral light, high-beam indicator, and odometer.

The 100 cc engine produced 11.5 [[Horsepower|HP]] according to Honda. This was sufficient to propel the bike with a small rider to about 70 mph. The CL100 was also available in a model designated CL100S, which had a throttle limiter to reduce power to 5 HP to meet some state restrictions for younger operators. In this configuration, top speed was about 50 mph.
