1964 to 1968 Honda CT 200 (aka Trail 90) Specs and Information
The CT200 was a 90cc trail bike released by Honda in 1964 (NOT to be confused with Honda’s 200cc trails bikes!)
Although these little 90cc off road beasties are fairly common in the USA, they are rare in the UK.
We did buy, ride around and sell one of these in late 2010 / early 2011………..
**Please Note** As with most older bikes, it can be very difficult to get ACCURATE information, do PLEASE don’t take the info on this page as gospel!!!
The Honda CT200 was originally sold to the hunter and fisherman market (there was an optional gun holder as a genuine Honda accessory for this bike!) in the US between 1964 and 1968.
Extra features included large rear carrying rack, off road tyres, 2 sets of sprockets on the rear wheel and a non sparking exhaust can!

Whats a Honda CT200 worth in the UK?)
Difficult question to answer…………….The Honda CT 200 we had was a runner and only looked to have a few parts missing and was sold in January 2011 for £450.
There was a Honda CT200 (aka Trail 90) sold on Ebay (complete and running) in March 2011 for £901.
The downside to these bikes in the UK is we’ve never seen one with the import documents (or ANY docs!), which does make registering them a chore……
The engines in the Honda CT200’s can be a bit rattly, but, the engines are pretty much bullet proof and usually go on forever!

Many of the Honda CT200 90cc bikes around seem to have been imported from the USA and Australia (where the MAY have been used as bikes for the postal service in these countries?)
