1970 Honda US 90 ATV
Chassis no. US90 106830
Engine no. US90E 106832
This US 90 was purchased new by Kirk Remick of Clayton, North Carolina on July 2nd 1970 directly from a Honda dealer, remaining in Remick family ownership for 33 years on their farm. On June 16th 2003 the machine was purchased by the vendor, Chris Schneer, and shipped to California for complete restoration. Undertaken between June and September 2003, the rebuild involved stripping the entire vehicle down to the last nut and bolt. The frame, rear brake cover, mounting plates, chain guard and skip plate were powder coated by Embee Performance coatings, and the rear grab bar, on/off switch cover and exhausts heat shield re-chromed by Sihilling Metal Polishing. Luigi's Classic Paint used the exact match to Honda's bright red (in PPG paint) to re-finish the gas tank, front fender, forks and rear fender. The engine was rebuilt by Loung Mach of Mach One Motorcycles.

The machine was re-assembled by Chris Schneer ('The ATC 90 King') using only original Honda parts and fastenings. We understand that this example is exactly to factory specification with the exception of the rivets retaining the rear fender rubber protectors (the original rubber grommets are no longer available) and the rear fender's underside which has been strengthened with extra layers of glassfibre to rectify an inherent weakness. This machine has not been ridden since completion and is presented in mint condition.
