Play bikes
 
New here! Since hardcore motocrossers call anything that isn't a YZ, CR, KX, SX, or RM a play bike:evil, lets start a thread for pics of "play bikes"! Any 2-stroke that you would rip off road with, jump, and basically have some fun bottoming-out moments on qualifies. I'll start with my 1991 Yamaha RT 180. It's reliable as the day, morning, evening, and night is long and a blast to ride. The suspension isn't the best, but by gum, it works. Every week we go riding out at a track in the boonies and I take the old smoker, because the only other bike I have is a 1977 Honda CT 125. I've jumped the thing--35 feet repeatedly, 25 feet constantly--and I weigh 200 lbs being 6' 6", but the little sucker gives me no troubles. Nothing like flying on one of those old buggers--everybody looks at you like "what in the world?!?" :rofl Here she is!http://i1310.photobucket.com/albums/...ps5967ee6e.jpg

Here's mine- 1988 DT50. It's a budget playbike...I have about $250 in it. You would think a 50cc dirt bike could not hurt you, but I have proven that theory wrong!:puke1

Those are awesome! Keep them coming everybody! I think the part about " You would think a 50cc dirt bike could not hurt you, but I have proven that theory wrong!" needs more detail:D I like the fact that you only have $250 into it. I paid $150 for mine, and then put on a new rear tire, patched the seat, bought an air filter, and relaced the rear wheel. Good as new:D I've had an opportunity to buy an IT 250, but I didn't know how they were for jumping and such. Probably about the same as what I already have though. You should paint your gas tank man!

Here's mine -

It's an xr100 with a 120cc kit. I built it to compete in a local mini road race series. I have knobbies for it too.

I forgot to post a pic of my little Honda! It goes well with yours. It's a '77 CT 125: http://i1310.photobucket.com/albums/...ps091a8ed0.jpg

the IT was yamaha's enduro bike at the time (IT stands for International Trials). the 250 and 400 was basically rehashed outdated YZ stuff with different porting/pipe and a bit more rake/trail. they can rip if setup right.
the IT175 was its own thing... and a very competent trail bike that can take a ton of abuse.

Down to this one-just out of storage and ready to be cleaned up in/out and maybe even make a street scrambler:

Wow .thats a beauty. I Dont know much about Rickmans , but that looks original ? Always love those radial fin heads.

Jeffn 05-12-2013 07:05 AM

Yep, original but lightly restored 73 MX(not a playbike back in the day however). If you could keep it out of 8 false neutrals, you could get a chequered flag. I had a new 72 endure 125 back in 73 as my 1st real bike w/a clutch...paid 699 & sold it for 175.
