Husqvarna TE450

That would be a '10, maybe '11. Italian motor, red PC valve cover. I think the '12's got the chinese mill. The white frame might place it '09 because the later ones were black. The date of the pic post is most likely the year of the bike.

Those are very nice bikes BTW.

I have a '11 TE630, black frame, red valve cover, silver rims. It's a great bike.

The Rallye Airheads from HPN are my favorite.
I live my dream with this bike.

On the picture is not the 600cc XR! Maybe he pictured the 250cc XR RFVC.

The early Bultaco Pursangs were gorgeous bikes too.
This was one of my first bikes and easily one of the best looking showroom stock dirtbikes, ever. [/IMG][/IMG] http://s562.photobucket.com/user/pen...g.html?filters[user]=90104569&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=2/phantom_moates.jpg[/IMG]

what they were like

I owned a sand cast yz250 73 in 75,76 it came after boring xl250 ,and great Ossa pioneer 1971. The Ossa taught me how good a dirt bike could be, what a tank, could be ridden at 2-3 mph or 65 mph. Heavy ,but indestructible. The YZ250 and 77 Ossa Desert phantom 250 were the same but different. Yz had great motor ,good ergos , light enough to live with so so suspension. The Ossa DP was my last dirt bike, and probably the one that got away . Miles above my ability, low first gear and tall fifth. Mx starts and 80+ top end. 207 to 212 lbs wet weight. More suspension travel and control than I deserved. Both 250s would run for 30 minutes on a full tank . Inadequate on the YZ and silly on the DP. Desert ? you would be 50 miles from your starting point and done. either would run with my buddies open class pigs in very fast trail riding . As long as there was a turn every 1/4 mile.
Oh yeah the 77 YZ125 , nice ,light as a dream ,None of the bike I listed took any thing but plugs,gas and tires (tubes).
Don't want to mention the awful ones not listed .

Nice looking old silver yammer. The yeller one is too, but geez, they're both old. ;)

The ossa is interesting...my thoughts were, "if you could keep it running". LOL

When I was a kid my riding buddy had a ossa and he custom fabed a Ducati 250 single into it. First frankenbike I'd been exposed to. Geez, that must be 40 years ago. It was a pretty good runner too.

The "72 Ossa Pioneer was a great running bike and for it's time handled pretty good. It did have a problem with the steel spokes and aluminum nipples. Rode one in the Texas State Enduro Circuit in "72/"73. Finished tenth.

Ossa Pioneer....Just last month I helped my friend offload his from his truck. And "his" for sure he bought it brand new in 71, only bike he ever bought new. Sold it 20(???) years ago then found it again and bought it back.

Good for him - I still have the 72 Pioneer I bought new (only new bike I ever bought as well) - I won't ever sell this bike but I sure wish I had my Mick Andrews replica Plonker back.




And per the previous post - steel spokes, aluminum nipples and salt water are a very bad combination - I had to respoke both the wheels on my Pioneer after a half hour ride on the beach at Fernandina back in the early 70's...
