Thanks all, found a PW80 on Craig's today and she is happy. I didn't realize how fast those things are. I rode it around the yard and will have to limit the throttle.

WTB PW80 or XR70

My daughter is ready for her own dirtbike. Doesn't have the clutch thing figured out yet.

Would like to buy a PW80 or XR70 for her. Budget is $500. Anyone have one?

Thanks in advance, Rich

Anyone around the Denver area have a XR650R swingarm tool that I could rent? I need to grease the swingarm and instead of buying one and using it once I thought I would ask.

Great stuff!

My first real dirtbike was an 1980 CR125 and could wheelie that thing forever. Then sold it and bought a RM500, many scares from that one. Thanks for sharing!
