The C90......is the hot version and will leave a C50 and C70 for dead.

I remember riding one years ago. If memory serves it had an odd 3 speed semi auto gearbox, or similar.

C90 is pretty rapid. 55 MPH.

There are two possible courses of action, neither of which involves me sampling the power of the mighty beast.
1. Tidy it up and sell it
2. Tidy it up, stash it away for years and then sell it.  :)

That seems such a waste, when you could be having lots of fun like this:

Next June goi to the IOM so you can open it up to see what it will really do on the out of town no speed limit sections. 8) 8) 8) Looking forward to you reporting back to OOF on that one. ::) ::) ::)

You could do a few practice track days first to setup the suspension before then. 8) 8) 8)

Several years ago, my father-in-law had a C90, which he lent me whilst my car was out of action. It was surprisingly good, and the only motor bikie that ever hurt me - I came off it on a gravelly bend after being forced to brake hard!
It was fun to ride, though, if slow, so if you ever consider selling it, Albs, I am interested. :y 8)
