Boy & his bike.

Son's first project. More of a clean and assemble I want to ride it now. Learning a little patience. 11 yr old instance gratification is the biggest challenge.

However, my dad would have made me walk barefoot on nails if he'd caught me in the shop without shoes.

Just sayin...

Thanks Scoutman. I appear to be completely gizmo inept. Posted pic then deleted it. Makes sense.

Nice!

XR80 right? I had a 1982 for my first bike. If it broke or needed maintenance my Dad showed me how to fix it. When it needed it again, I had to do it myself if I wanted to ride it. I had sooooooo much fun on that bike!

He'll love it!

It's a XR75. Trying to run down a few odds and ends. Motor is in. Going to use the old plastics cause he'll just break them again anyway.
