Here's one from about 73 or 74, Yamaha 250MX. Damn thing had way too much power for the frame and suspension to deal with.

1971 on my brand new Suzuki TC90. dual range transmission.

My first bike. Brand new cost IIRC $425.00

Note the lace up boots. I was so proud of those. Also my hunting/fishing license pinned to my red plaid jacket.





after a year on that bike (18" wheels and 4"travl) I bought my first competiyion bike

'72 Puch 125 Learned to ride 1/4 mile wheelies on that baby and entered my first enduro. super trick Jofa mouth guard was standard equipment then.
