Re: Show us your ride!!

2017 SCR950 I sold my Virago to buy this brand new retro style bike from Yamaha. As you can see, they somewhat styled it after the bikes I've been collecting. It turns out that very few people liked the look and sales were dismal. I got this bike at a great price because dealers were worried about b...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1970 CT175 This bike gets ridden hard and put away wet. I bought it simply because my best friend had one when we were 15 years old and he could always beat me on my Kawasaki 175. Mine was big and sluggish with rotary valve induction. His was light and responsive with reed valve induction. I added a...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1971 & 72 JT60s I am currently refurbishing these two mini enduros and have obtained third one that has a lot of better quality parts than these two currently have. I'm about 60% complete right now and have parts scattered everywhere. The little white one was someone's attempt at making a bike from ...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1974 Honda Z50 Notice something here? It's a Honda. My boss obtained this bike for free and asked if I could get it running for his grandkids to ride. Upon further investigation, it needed a lot of work to be worthy of safely putting your grandkids on it. And when grandma found out about grandpas pl...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1974 DT360 This bike is unique in that it was a single year production bike from Yamaha. They made earlier 360s, but not in the DT series. The following year it was upsized to the 400 which I have shown in my earlier post. This is a mean one. You best show it who's boss when you kickstart this bad b...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1975 GT80 This little gem was not rescued like the others. I paid more for this little guy than any other Enduro in my collection. The little ones are hard to find because they were simply ridden to death. They were typically handed down from one youngster to the next. And they were rarely maintaine...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1975 DT100 This is my little Sweet Heart. I ride it quite often, but simply around my yard with a big smile on my face. It was an Ugly Duckling when I brought it home. In my opinion, it turned out to be one of my best looking and running bikes in the bunch. It starts on the second kick. First kick l...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1975 DT125 This is the bike that started my addiction on rescuing old Yamaha Enduros. I bought it from a farmer in Ohio who used it to get around on his farm. It was completely stripped down of all its street legal equipment. This is where I learned how difficult and costly it is to individually obt...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1975 DT175 I bought this cheap as a parts bike for my 76 DT175, but it actually runs well and has most of its pieces. I have since learned that there are a lot of unique items on the 76 model that are not interchangeable with the 75 that I bought for a parts bike. So guess what...... this one is On ...

Re: Show us your ride!!

1975 Yamaha DT250 I got this bike from the original owner. The bike lost spark and they couldn't figure out what caused it. I bought it cheap.....and I couldn't figure it out either. So I bought an extremely rough condition bike that fired right up and ran well. Started swapping parts and found it w...
