WTB PW80 or XR70

My daughter is ready for her own dirtbike. Doesn't have the clutch thing figured out yet.

Would like to buy a PW80 or XR70 for her. Budget is $500. Anyone have one?

Thanks in advance, Rich

Looking for a TW

Does anyone have a TW for sale? Looking for one of the early years.

Let me know what you have.

Thanks

Damn... 2 weeks ago I had three of them for sale. Sold 2 and gave one to my 77 yr old dad.

Sorry I can't help, but keep up the search! If you find one you'll love it.

Yeah... and still have two (one set up for offroad and one that I ride exclusively around town). It's a sickness...

BTW, you mentioned an early one... be a little careful of the '87 models as they are known to have CDI problems. I kind of prefer them, but you have to count on dumping $200 to $250 into a new CDI box.

Thanks all, found a PW80 on Craig's today and she is happy. I didn't realize how fast those things are. I rode it around the yard and will have to limit the throttle.

Thanks for the heads up. What are the signs of a CD I box going bad?

The bike will usually idle fine, but will cut out and intermittently lose spark at higher rpms and/or higher loads. Many people mis-diagnose it as a carburetor issue, especially the seller... "oh, it just needs to have the carb cleaned, it's been sitting awhile"

I just took a closer look at this helmet. While it is in very good shape, it isn't quite as pristine as I thought it was... Some light surface scratches, a bit of dirt, etc.

Dropping the price to $200 even. I would love to keep it, but it's way too small for me.

Super light, at2.8 pounds. Super cool visible carbon fiber, great ventilation, protection, comfy, an all-around top-of-the-line helmet.
