I started riding on a Honda 90 just like many in the mid range age group. Liked the S90, CL90 Scrambler and alike.

Browsing CL new listings as I do, to stay current on market conditions I found something I thought was a little different, but interesting.

The bike doesn’t show too many signs of re-paint. I could be mistaken. 4 speed, current license tags until June. Starts right up and rides pretty well in the short distance I ran it through the gears. It’s 50 years old. No notice-able dents in the fuel tank. Some light rust inside can be miniamized. Headlight and tail lights work. Was not too concerned about an aftermarket throttle assembly. Two keys, pink slip and a nice condition Honda owner’s manual. 4000 on the odometer. A broken speedometer cable at the front brake backing plate.

I thought of the name and decided to hyphen her.

Breena-Malvina Rose’ like the wine.
1969 HONDA SL90

Rick, would say she’s a peach.

More details as they become available. Just a little chrome polish tomorrow.

Nice! The best parts source for little Honda's is DRATV, they have everything!

It looks almost like an SL-70.

SL's are cool looking,
just curious how long have you been naming your motorcycles?

Well, my 1971 YAMAHA AT1-C was probably the first bike I named? It was purchased September 18, 2012. I named her DOROTHEA, after my mentor Dr. James Anton Bisbas, DDS. That is his wife’s name. He passed away September 1987. The motorcycle was/is so pretty - and “he loved her so very much” and asked for her to be taken care of with “kit gloves.”

So, close to 7 years - I have named bikes.
It makes it easy to search for my threads by bike name. I agree this is the most unusual name BREENA to date.

DOROTHEA, is a wonderful established Poet.

Well that makes sense, B)

I get lost with the numbers. Ive had several of the same bikes, e.g. Honda s90, 3 of them. :woohoo:

The bike absolutely was repainted to look like a 1971 SL70.

After extensive research the frame will eventually be repainted silver, along with the stripe on the fuel tank.

Going tomorrow to AAA pay the fees and get the bike on Non-Op.

Things like the rear wheel should be re-chromed, new spokes, just a freshen up to be a touch more accurate.

She’s a rider. Rattle cans and elbow grease.
