Me too. I bought it for 100 dollars after a summer of doing hay. and sold it for 100 bucks when I moved up to a 125. I've seen the money they draw on CL but I'd have to keep it just to bomb around on. Boy they sure were good times

I have a kfx450 it's a fuel injected quad or fourwheeler runs real good great for cranking wheelies that's what my youtube channel is based on

That 150 will fool you to.

I'd hurt myself on that.... look's like fun tho. I for some reason can not grow up and become a mature adult. I love going too fast and doing it in a wheelie is a HUGE plus

My dad told me not to sell it. That I would want it when I was older. I told him it's just an old worn out bike that barely runs. Why would I want that?

Memories! Honda shop was close to my house. CT70, ST90, XL70 were all starter bikes. I couldn't afford my first bike until I was 16. By then I was too big for those bikes. Ended up with a left over 74 XL175. Bought for the wonderful sale price of 699$ in 76. Yes, 700$ for a 175.  I was one happy camper that summer!

I remember watching Roger Decoster, Bob "Hurricane" Hannah, Tony Distefano,Brad Lackey, Marty Smith, Danny "Magoo" Chandler, and more.  Never cared much for Jeff Ward, Rick Johnson, and a couple others, and not sure why....just didn't.

 I much more enjoyed the days of country courses such as Carlsbad and Unadilla.  Stadium Supercross just isn't the same.

I have never been able to handle the sound of those stupid things, so I have steered clear. I threaten to blow a hole through the block of those running up & down the street! Can't stand them!

I can't stand them around home either, but on a track it's what you expect to hear, so it's not bothersome.  And the smell of BelRay 2 stroke oil is addicting!

I love the sound of a tuned 2 stroke cackling! A lot of kids and adults ride a lot around my town, me included. We are respectful of each other when riding past houses. My quads these days are utility so they are naturally pretty quiet

My starter bike was a a Yamaha JT-2MX. Then I bought a 1974 XR-75. $375.. Used my money from mowing grass and working for a local vet. I poured over the latest Minicycle magazine, and bought a larger carb, hooker header megaphone, and a foam filter. With those three modifications, I raced at the local track. My dad was a Methodist preacher and the races were slways held on Sunday, so it was hard for me to get to the races consistently. But they were fun times and great memories.... The "ant hill" was the big deal in those days. No way I could do what these guys do today.
I have a couple of JT-2's in the shed.....one day I will get them out and get them running again.

Daniel I was a Jeff Ward and Brian Meyerscough (?) fan. Liked Brad Lackey as well.

I always want to ride The Blackwater enduro when I was a kid. I use to read my Dirt rider mag's til the print was unreadable. Broome Tioga was about 45 minutes from my house growing up. It's funny how much has changed  I NEVER would of thought that a four stroke could run with a two stroke let alone dominate the sport
