Honda CS90 1967 – Honda Sport 90, Super 90, or S90
The Honda Sport 90, Super 90, or S90, was a 90 cc Honda motorcycle based on the Honda Super Cub, made from 1964 to 1969.
The single cylinder OHC air-cooled engine linked to a four speed transmission. It had a hand clutch, and shifting was “1 down, 3 up,” with neutral in between those. There was no tachometer but the speedometer indicated speed ranges for each gear. The top speed was claimed to be 64 mph, and the engine was rated at 8 horsepower.

The engine held a quart of oil and had an internal centrifugal oil filter, and the exhaust had a removable baffle. A metal cylinder behind the carburetor held the air filter. Tools went under the seat in their own compartment.
The frame was pressed steel rather than tubular steel to minimize weight and the bike was fitted with telescopic front forks for improved road holding. The motorcycle was not intended for off road use, as evidenced by the narrow handle bars and street tires; it included no accessories for such travel. 90 miles per US gallon (38 km/l) was not hard to attain, even with spirited riding.
There are a variety of models including the Honda S90, CS90, and the Benly 90. The date of manufacturing can be determined by removing the fuel tank and examining the tag surrounding the wiring harness.
