Mark Johnson's Honda CL90 and Yamaha TW200



Wow, your September/October issue featuring the 1966 650 Triumph and the Honda CL90 sure brought back so many good memories for me. When I was 12 years old I owned a little CL90. My family would go camping in the national forest in Washington, Idaho and Montana. We geared down the CL90 with a big sprocket on the rear wheel, which gave the bike more torque at lower speeds. Top speed was about 30 miles per hour, but the bike could climb steeper hills. When I was 18 years old I bought a used 1966 650 Triumph and used it as a street bike for about 20 years. Today I ride a Yamaha TW200 trail bike (see photo). Keep up the good work in bringing back so many good memories for your readers.

The 1968 CL90 featured in Motorcycle Classics (Sept/Oct 2019) has been sold to a reader in New Hampshire. It was a return to having a long lost friend back in his garage again, so the bike couldn't have found a better home to be preserved and enjoyed. Don at Vintage Motorcycle Rescue, Folsom, CA.
