I love the early model Honda Cafe’s. They just seem to really hit all the right notes and this one is a tough looking little rider which I especially appreciate. Show bikes have their place of course but I like the “patina” of a road grime just fine.

Honda Supercub C90ST.
Joe from Mexico sends in some pictures of this new Honda C90ST. At a quick glance, I thought it was a restoration of an early model. then Joe mentioned the history of the bike. I didn’t realize that these were being built by Honda in North America! In my beach community this bike would be fantastic! Why the heck can’t I get one of these at my local Honda dealer here in the US? No offense to the Vespa “style” scooters but I’d rather have something along these lines for where I live.
great website! Here’s my 2008 Honda Super Cub C90ST, I bought it new in April, 2008. Built in Kumamoto Japan, assembled from CKD in Guadalajara, México. I learned to ride on it, but rarely ride it anymore, I ride a 2008 Honda NX4 Falcon (400cc version of NX650 Dominator, built in Brazil) now.
Thanks Joe! And if you have pictures of that NX4 Falcon I’d love to see them!
Update: 1977 Laverda Jota
I’m a recent recent convert to Laverda (and several other brands actually) and I’m a looooong way from getting the models sorted out. In that spirit I welcome any corrections to what are often my best guesses.
So from the comments: Lovely Bike, Jota it is not however, more like a late’ish 3C, I’d say 1975. ALL Jota’s had cast wheels, and dual seat with duckbills at rear…
The french have a racing series called the Guidon D’or. Wow it looks fun.
This looks to be an offshoot of the 70’s wide world of sports “Superbikes” events that pitted racers from all different disciplines on one track that combined road and dirt.
