Every child in our family learned to ride on this. My son still rides it.

It's me 5 years ago on IZH Planeta Sport (hardly modified). It's not exactly enduro, but all-road 2T 1982 bike)))

To many irreplaceable memories attached to it. My great grandchildren will leard to ride on it. We have the trials version too, but my father will not relinquish it quite yet.

74 honda xl 350
picked it up for free, made it run for the price of carb parts, fuel line, spark plugs, carb cleaner, and a throttle cable.

My old 185, bought modded, and my best friend's 125, bought stock with only about 2000km on the clock, both from around '80.

Yeah, I had the same one. Bought it brandnew in 1989. Much nicer than the 87-later models. IMHO the bet looking Enduro ever. Unfortunately id didn´t last very long. Enginge and Transmission weak after 1 Year. Sold it and bought KTM.

I got up Saturday to go look again. The salesman came over, and told me that he'd seen me in before. I said something like "I came in to look at that '86 you had, but it's gone. I don't know about the white ones". He told me that they had just finished putting together another '86. We went out back and they were just washing it off. I got on it, started it and listened to it idle for a little bit, them I bought it.
