    Get it going and take it out bush or sell or give it to someone that wants a bush basher but don't have any money to buy one to thrash around.
    A mate of mine was at the local tip many years ago and there was a old XL100 dumped he put in his boot and took it home changed the oil and put some fresh fuel in it and it fired up, he rode it for years before giving it to a local kid to ride it around.

    If it is not too tall, it might be good for teaching a kid to ride around a paddock.

    I'm not really Honda guy but it did sadden me to see it laying there.
    The carb was off, so who knows if it sat outside and is locked up.
    It had been pulled clear of the skid loader.
    Min dump charge is 93.20 plus tire premiums, so unless it was part of a load it cost over hundred to dump it.
    I'm thinking there are title issues with it.

    Short drift here. Back in the 70's I was working on a house with that had some stuff under a tarp.
    2- Hondas, a CT-90 and SL-100. Gave him $50.00 for both.
    Basic service, fluids, carb clean etc and they both fired up.
    Never cared for the CT-90, SL-100 was a ton of fun. Undersprung for my lanky 180 lb at the time, I rode the snot of it.
    Sold those, plus 2- Bultacos and my original first Norton plus an Austin Healey Mk III, for the downpayment on my first house.
    Of the items I regretted where the Norton and the SL-100..
