For Free!!!!!

I have 1 ea. Ching Shen gnobbly in 3.00 X 21 with a bunch of life left in it and a Michelin t63 with a bit of life left in it 120-80 X 18. Might get you by until serious riding season. Hook up pretty good in dirt and gravel but kind of give up when mud gets packed in the lugs.


And a set of Halvarrsson Riding leathers. Swedish. A lot of life left in the pants approx 38-39 waist X 28-29 inseam. And jacket has a bit of wear ( no pavement rash ) and it's XL x 32" sleeve. These are highly desired in Europe but couldn't sell them so I sell for FREEEE! Just can't stand the sight of flesh on the street...

In Nikiski. sevensevensixeightfoureightnine. Or PM

LTB--PW50 or TTR50

Looking to buy a bike for my son who will be 6 this summer. Looking for a PW50 or TTR50 preferably with training wheels. He has never ridden any type of machine. There is one on Craigslist but the number listed is bad, so if you know who it is let me know.

That 50 may be kinda small for him. Have you sat him on one yet? Might be worth a stop at the dealer for a test fit. If he can ride a bike I would skip the training wheels, they will just be more cumbersome than helpful. Just set the throttle limiter way down and keep him slow for the first several miles.

This is Rem at 5 yo last summer with his PW50. Had easily outgrown it by the fall.



Of course AKJack was able to fit it fairly well...

He sat on a TTR50 at the show today and was just able to flat foot it. The TTR seems just a bit taller than the PW50. His daddy isn't built like Shrek

He didn't quite conquer the bicycle last summer but we'll get that squared once the snow clears.
I may run him down to the Yammie dealer later this week just to double check.

Guy, u can get him a 49cc pocket bike..

That's what I started with. Plus ,they're super fun !. But it wouldn't be the best choice for any off road riding.

The PW is a bit smaller and quite a bit lighter than the TT. Not sure which performs better...2 stroke over 4 stroke.

Details shemtails! The bike will be a B-day present in July. He won't ride it until we get the bike down.

If we lived in the lower 48 it wouldn't have been an issue
