Indeed, it was the Christmas that all others have been judged by. It led to this.

Regarding the hangar with my El Bandito and other toys. Alas, the others belong to my riding buddy of 31 years. Here is another view from the side. Anyone recognize the grey middle bike?

Looks like a Yankee to me. Maybe a twin.

This bike can still keep up. In the right conditions, it makes you giggle with torque and sound!

(balancing out my carbon footprint with the car.)

fun fun

Probably been posted a million times before, but I don't care.
Could watch it once a day for life & it would still put a smile on my face every time.

My very first bike, a 1970 Yamaha DT1 250 Enduro bought in 1974. As you can see, it was in pretty rough shape. I don't like things in rough shape but I could see this was a gem in the rough.




First thing to do was tear it apart and see what needed replacing.




After about 6 months of ordering parts, I finally got everything I needed and this was the end result.





I replaced just about everything except for the frame and engine. The parts list went something like this:

Preston Petty front and rear fenders
Clarke YZ plastic fuel tank
Koni shocks
DT250 MX cylinder and expansion chamber (no silencer )
Knobby Tires

I later added a 21" front rim which made a world of difference in handling.

So I rode this bike in the desert for about 6 months and then sold it. The Honda dealer down the street just got in a brand spanking new CR250M1. Well, there was no comparison. I'll post pictures of the CR at a later time.

Kenny's Montesa

Recent Photo of Kenny and a clone he had built of his 1969 Montesa Cappra GP 250 Five flat tracker from the day. Amazingly for sale on ebay.............. get your check book out. I would if I could.





Mine has a little way to go, but I can save you a few K on the price.
