My first bike was a 1971 Yamaha JT-1 60 which my brother bought for me when I was 5. He paid 20 bucks for it, and brought it home from the MC shop he was working at one box at a time on his 10 speed.
We (Mostly him and our Dad) put it together and I've been riding ever since. I'm glad I was born into a riding family, I read stories of "first generation riders" and I think "You poor deprived children"
I had the best childhood ever riding every Sunday with my Dad and Brother.
I'd like to find a JT-1 to restore, but all those old bikes that I couldn't wait to get rid of for "the next new thing" are way overpriced these days.
