I am restoring a Honda 55 trail bike.
The Ser# is C105C-040755
Everything I look up talks about a c105T or a C105ST
Do I have a C105C?
And if so why can't I find mentioned anywhere?
Any idea how I can find what year exactly it is?
The Ser# seems to be before the listed ones for the C105T that it looks like with the swept down exhaust.
Also does the C105 have points and if so where might they be located?
I just started restoring the bike and am waiting for a service manual to arrive in the mail.
Thanks for any Help.

I think it been stamped wrong and the 5 was meant to be a 2 making it a c102
Here is serial c102-C056031 looks familiar

Who knows maybe your bike is a c105 stamped as ac102 ??? or some kind of bitzer
Does the frame number match the engine number

Probably best to post some pics so everyone can have a look see.

First of all I believe you meant The Ser# is C105-C040755 as the "C" should be after the dash. There will be no "T" in the frame serial number as all versions of C105's used the same frame. Engine numbers do not even remotely match on those models. But if you can post it, I can tell if it is in the range to be original. Anyway if it's a C105T it would have the "peashooter" exhaust. It also should have the larger fuel tank and longer seat but still no reserve tube back to the tank. As mentioned pictures would help to confirm that it's still original or not. The Trail 55 was introduced in April of '62.
The points are under the flywheel on the left side. A special flywheel removel tool is required to remove the flywheel to get access for changing the points.

Below links of Frame number list for Honda C105 and C102

Nothing seems to add up i do know there is a separate parts list for US bikes so maybe there was a difference in frame and engine numbers to ? it seems logical.

Rizingson if you got some more info on the numbers etc ya should post it up to spread as there is stuff all info out there.
