Merry Christmas to everyone up north. Looks like you guys are in the bulls-eye for the big midweek storm.

Everything looked great for being 12 Yrs old. I dont think the engine was ever apart before. All bolts were spotless and didnt have a mark on em.

Piston was discolored but not scratched up and still had bout 185 Psi..



Which is well within spec..

I'll be ready. Heading to the store tomorrow afternoon to spend a few hours installing fresh Kold Kutters into the Punkin' Chucker sneakers. Bring on the ice & snow! First place that I'm gonna head to test 'em out of oPAULo's yard! He just loves it when I tear the snot out of it. Best part is that I know he doesn't own a gun to shoot me with!

Unlike modern off-road bikes these bikes were intended to go through the woods at a crawl and were light and simple enough to operate almost anyone could ride one. There's something to be said for a bike that allows you to gently visit the outdoors rather than blasting your way through it and get fantastic gas mileage doing it.
Great vid.
Thanks for posting.
Love the Honda trailies.

Enjoy the Holiday and safe riding in the new year.

I was drooling over that setup the other night. Watched the promo videos and they were, indeed, very suave. Bit outta this Santa's budget though. Still, I'd like to try one out for a bit. Looks like a blast!
