They are tough but they have their problems. The main weak point is the antique 6V electrical system with no voltage regulator and an ignition system that requires a charged battery to run, although the later model 110s will run without a battery. Another weak point is the passages in the carbs are so small that they clog with the tiniest particle that would go right through a larger carb. The frame, wheels, etc., are super strong.

In my youth I had a "mini-trail 50" and a "trail 70" before moving up to "real" motorcycles like Kawasaki 125 enduro.
My question for those of you riding them...Are they as tough as I'm remembering or is it just nostalgia on my part?
