Dang, if I was closer I'd check this out. Terrible seat and all. I'm a sucker for the little Ninjas.

Tip on changing oil: When oil is draining, stick a wired office tag to the throttle grip to remind you there is no oil. Often oil is draining for other repairs/upgrades and may not be refilled for days or weeks. The tag is a good substitute for Ginko Viagra (remember what the F*** you were supposed to do).

and it may not be you that you have to remind...

I was draining the oil out of my Ducati and it kept dripping so I decided to let it drain overnight. The next day my brother in law had stopped by when I wasn't there to pick up some stuff and was checking out the bike. He told me about it a couple of weeks later and said "I was going to start it up to listen to the new exhaust but didn't have time." He didn't see the oil pan under it. I got lucky, he got luckier

1973 Yamaha 175 and 1972 Suzuki 250 for sale. Both bikes run great and have clean titles.
$300 each or $600 for both.



Apparently sold, I wanted that Suzy. That was my first "dirt" bike.

I likes me some Beezers because my Dad has had so many that my blood pumps thru Amals. But the proportions on that one are all wrong! Good price for a running bike of that vintage but it could look so much better...



That's me on one of his...

Here's another:


Beautiful bikes.

Yes, I had a blue one just like that, but without the silly bars.

'76 yz 400

A few months ago I spied this YZ on CL in Las Cruces. It was for the most part original and complete. Took it home, completely disassembled and cleaned up everything. It's all back together again, may put some premix in it and fire it up this weekend. I am worried that it will be under-powered; it's only a little 400 cc two-stroke...

New seals, new fork oil, new boots, ready to RIDE... soon, I hope. They only put them on the 1976 YZ400, discontinued after that year (AFAIK). Will put more pics on my build thread.

As primitive as they were, the TS models were bulletproof. I knew an engineer who rode street only and had over 30k on his with zero repairs other than brakes.
