So last summer I picked up a CT90 for $250 and the seller tossed in a Puch Maxi for an extra $6. It's been sitting in my shop for little over a year now.
A week or two ago, my Mrs was reading up on the earthquake we're supposed to be getting in the PNW sometime in the next few decades. It's supposed to be a big one. Huge tsunami, no electricity for days, etc.
We're not really "preppers", but we don't like to be caught unawares, either.
Lemme take a step back for a second... My wife hates everything with two wheels with a passion. She's convinced herself that motorcycles are going to be the death of me and leave her raising the children alone. She really doesn't even like bicycles that much. You can imagine my surprise when she says to me last week, "You need to get that moped running and teach me how to use it. You know, in case that earthquake hits and the roads won't work for the cars."
So, as a firm believer in the magical power of gateway drugs, I decided to make this thing a priority and get her onto two wheels.
Not going to go too crazy on this one. Some basic engine mods and maybe an electronic ignition along with new offroad tires and some paniers. We'll see how it goes...
Here's how she looked when I brought her home and how she looks after three hours of work this afternoon.
