    It is a creek crossing on a legal numbered road in the ANF between the intersection of 309/348 and Smith Creek Road west of 315. The woodpeckers love this tree and therefore we leave it leaning.

    I feel your pain. It should be a breeze to find. Not much else around there unfortunately.

    Holy crap! The tag has moved twice in the last 6 months?

    I need to change a tire and swap on the new tank and I'll be ready to ride :clap

    BTW Buzz, I got a Clarke 3.3 gal.

    Depends on what kind of parts you need. I check vft.org and vintagemx.us pretty frequently. You'll see a combination of different stuff pop up there on occasion.

    I have 4 of them and some extras. What kind of stuff do you need?

    exhaust for sure, side plates, cables, bearings, typical rebuild stuff. If I pass on it would you be interested?
    I have owned it since 1992, it was rebuilt a few years before then and only ridden twice.

    If the motor is good, then definitely interested.

    I have most of that stuff; no cables or bearings, but I do have an ok set of side panels, a like new stock exhaust, and an extra head pipe somewhere. If you need cables, I'd go through motion pro; I snapped a clutch cable recently and had the replacement in 3 days.

    All of mine, except 1, get used, and a bunch. The one in the picture is a work in progress; getting ready to redo the whole front suspension and put a new 34mm mikuni on, and start doing some vintage rallies and dual sport rides.
