I've got an '86 & a 2000 model...It's incredible how similar the bikes are. The '86 starts FAR easier, runs just as well, and has a more comfortable seat. The '00 model might be a bit stronger out of the hole. My nephews (of about the same weight) have drag raced from a 20mph start and stayed neck & neck. I'l post photos later. love this thread.
PS- any source for new side plastics for the early bike??
Still slow after all these years...
