I had a Honda C50 when I was 16, in the UK you could ride a 50cc at 16 years of age and my first girlfriend bought me a 10 year old one for my 16th birthday. Then I discovered that the C90 90cc engine would slot right in. So I got one and sneakily slotted it right in. The best 20 quid I ever spent. A lot of the other kids had Yamaha FS1E`s and Suzuki AP 50`s and would spend a fortune on 65cc kits, bigger carbs and expansion pipes etc but my C50 (90) used to flog them all into the weeds.
She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.
