I'll have to dig up the stills of the 465 and 490 that we had and scan them to post... Man, every time I rode that 490 I would come back and my arms were longer... That thing was just the balls for jumping over stuff. Power was sa-weet....!

The 465 had a restart when hot problem, all the time that we had it. The bottom would flood not quite to the point of hydraulic lock but close, turn it upside down and drain the fuel from the exhaust and then touch it off, so to speak.
Had to kick the shit out of too...

Photos later...


Lots of good memories...

Thanks,
Rob

this bad boy is on EBay right now. I ALMOST grabbed it at the Buy It Now, but didn't.

I'm currently high bidder. But a lot can happen between now and Friday night.

Nice '82 there, Flug.

Not the stock seat, not stock muffler, not stock rear light cover, missing the tool pouch, but a great looking bike.

Better than anything I will create.

Oh, I SIT corrected. That is one Schweet mount. Not stock--better. Let me know how that goes down. When I am rich I will add one of those to my 465.

wellllll....

I could have had it for Buy it now of $1550. or anyone else. but once reserve met it ended up going for $1757.

I never saw a sniper in action. it was sitting at $1525 with less than 5 seconds and all of a sudden boom. $1757.

I even jumped back in at $1500.

We had an 85 IT 200 from 1990 to about last year. Fun bike. The 490 has to be a beast. I know a guy that's got one he doesn't ride. hmmmm

Anyways another place for you guys to look, the 86 IT 200 had disks that (according to a dirt rider article) were "10 years ahead of their time". So, now they're only 12 years behind the times.

I miss my IT 200. Was my all time favorite bike. Fast and flickable on the singletrack and very easy to work on.
