Honda S90

Pictured here is a 1966 Honda S90, this particular example is owned by Neil Kidby. These were the fastest 90cc Honda's of their time with 65mph being achievable, they are now one of the most collectable of the small Honda"s. The engine is an overhead camshaft type and differs from the normal Honda 90cc units as it uses an aluminium barrel (as opposed to the normal cast iron type) and a high compression piston. The bike was found by Neil in running order but after having been in storage for over 30 years was in need of a complete restoration. Parts were sourced from within the VJMC,  as well as the USA, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam and within the UK. With the exception of the rechroming all work required was carried out by Neil and the bike returned to the road in the autumn of 2009. These bikes are capable of around 180mpg. Pictured below is the bike nearing the completion of it restoration.

Neil intends to use the bike for shows and local VJMC section runs and events. It was lent to an Ipswich motorcycle dealer in 2009 for display as part of their celebration of 50 years of trading.
