      My wife rides a factory perfect '78 CB400 Hondamatic. I like riding it too, but have a hard time not clutching/shifting. It goes pretty good though, 0 to 60 in about 30 seconds tops at 105! It is like riding an electric golf cart.
      Handles good, but most Hondas did, except the CB750F a ton of rolling exhaust pipes!

      I bought my CL90L 5HP Scrambler 90 when I was 15 years old at the Honda shop in Traverse City, MI. It is the Candy Red/Silver model and I still own it. Any ideas on how I can find out what it is worth?

      This was quite a popular bike in Miami Springs FL. It was about all that was available for a restricted license. I had the candy apple red version as there were 2 or 3 blue ones already. It was my first bike and looks much smaller now. You could replace the jet or slide to increase the HP which of course we did. It was a GREAT bike. It would jump, scramble, wheelie. I made the best jump of my life on this thing. Riding with about ten of my friends about 45mph I pulled on the shoulder cause I knew of a small hill ahead, flew in the air, planed beautiful, crossbar across my chest, back wheel kissed, then the front, pulled back into the group not missing a beat. What a feeling! Of course my freind on his Honda 350 tried and failed miserably. Split his nose.
      I could do wheelies for blocks on curves and circles. Really had to pop the clutch to get it up. Went through a few rear hubs as a result. Thing ran and ran, one time till the footpegs fell off. Finally died one day taking another hill. Never ran again. Was watching the movie "Independence Day" and they had a Candy Apple Red Honda CL90L hadn't thought of it for years.Thanks for pic, never had a pic of mine.

      Ok so HP is not everything. I was able to keep up (in the ccorners) with a Honda 175 in the hills near Salmon Hills, not far form Coloma CA back in the late 60's or early 70's. The 90 really allowed for some decent cornering. Yeah laugh it up, I know. But it was so fun!

    16. raynittolo 60 months ago | reply

      I loved it. Had more fun on that thing. I could keep up with most but a kawasaki 90 two stroke blew my "side covers" in. Hell, I used to ride with big BSA's Triumphs, Harleys, they would just pull over and have a smoke and a laugh till I whined by. I didn't care, I was there.
