    Yes, it's a '99. NMTrailboss has one just like it.

    Congrats. These are sweet rides! :thumb

    Pics of my 314 coming as soon as the old pig is photoworthy. :lol3

    Mine looks just like it too, except for the dirt, and the scratches, and the stickers...

    ...oh, and my plastic is a different color. Other than that, they're identical.

    For what ever reason, I'm a Montesa/Honda guy...The first trials event that I went to 'observe', the Montesa was the bike I HAD to have (I bought one two days later). At the time, I didn't even know that Honda had something to do with them.

    Many years ago I had a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10. I LOVED the aluminum frame. It looked soooo cool to me. I think that might have something to do with the Montesa. Strange comparsion...the male mind :dunno .

    VERY nice bike huskey123.

    I have a brand new 2002. Like fresh out of the crate new. Rode it around the parking lot so it has 1hr on it now. Not sure what to do with it! I'm scared to even look at it wrong, needs to go in a museum. [​IMG]

    You're right, it's way too nice to ride. I've got a battle-scarred '02 that I'll trade you for so you can ride it..... :evil :lol3

    Big thanks to Mike at the Tryals Shop for the fender. Now if we can get the "seat" piece, it will come together nicely.

    Had to get the 315 in. Just got it you know.

    Yes, the '14 needs some work. Husky123's is what I'm aiming for, finishwise. We'll get there.

    Maybe. :lol3

    I think they go together very well...if you put a 'little' blue/purple? on the 315, they would like kissing cousins :patch .
