It looks suspiciously like a Spagthorpe. If so, it's a valuable rare find.

What is that I-25N with 36 on the left exit? if so a really terrible spot, my fiance commutes and sits on the ramp from I-76 to I-25 ev. ery. day. Its a mess.

Looks like an old Yamaha or Bridgestone 2 stroke twin, in the 175cc range most likely.

That write up on Spagthropes is hilarious.

There are loads of them out there. There was even a wikipedia entry out for about a year. Born from the twisted minds of rec.motorcycles, here is one of my favorites.

Much like pictures of the Spagthorpe, surviving documentation is usually missing or out of focus.

The frame looks right for a Yamaha YAS1. But the rear of the tank looks like it is sloping too much.

the swingarm is a stamping, not like the YAS1's tube steel

YI1 Twinjet is what it looks like to me

Bummer.

MRI is schedule for Thursday, Doctor suspects ACL, MCL, and meniscus , if that is indeed the case, does anybody have a feel for how long an average recovery time is? I'd really like to get back on the trails before the snow flies...

Daughter's complete ACL repair was 6 months before her conditional release. She endo'ed her moto the next weekend. Re-tore ACL, MCL and PCL, meniscus and chipped the femoral cartilage. Got lucky though, no more surgery.

Doood.. sorry to hear that.

From personal experience you can be back on a pedally bike within 6 weeks, but I'd say 6 months before you'd want to chance technical dirtbike riding. Maybe less if you really push the PT and strength training.

Doing cadaver replacements will be the shortest recovery time since there's no harvest site to heal, but then you have to be real careful not to push too hard too soon, because the pain will go away long before it's fully stable.

The standard of care will be 6 months before approval for normal activity, and 12 months before it's 100% stable.

Depends on what you choose to use for the ACL repair. I was a full year before I felt 100%. That was with autograft. An allograft will probably be at least a year before you get full strength. A meniscus tear will mean no weight bearing for quite some time.

While missing a riding season sucks, getting repairs done in the winter is very risky if you live around snow and ice. A minor slip on ice can rip everything apart when healing.
