    I have a friend who is planning on getting back to riding, and get his 10 yr old son going also. They currently have zero equipment or gear. If you have any leads, please PM me. The thought is something like a TTR110 and a 250 DS bike (e.g., WR250R would perhaps be first choice). Cheers.

    Nooooo!!! Not the courier! It’s just so...you!


    Sorry you have to part with some cool toys, but sounds like it’s all for adulting and stuff. Thing about toys is they’ll always be there when you need/have time and money for more.

    I'll still throw in the m10 for fuel injection if that helps the sale.

    Thanks Tim, if it doesn't sell I'll take you up on that 'cause that'd be nicer driving if I'm stuck with it...

    Dan, that courier would look really nice with some Coldfire graphics on the side delivering kegs around the area, just sayin' :evil

    That Courier sold for $3,000 in 1974. It books for $5k now, and you won’t find a nicer one than Paul’s. Not a bad investment!

    Who says VD is a curse...?

    No kidding. I bought one that was the same vintage and color in 1997 for $500 and sold it a few years later for the same price. The paint was faded, but there was no rust or dents, it was completely straight. Bend, OR vehicle it's whole life before they used deicer in the winter. Seats could have been reupholstered but that was about it. Guess I should've kept it!

    Some of my driving lessons were in a brand new ‘72 model in Death Valley. Good times... :D

    I had one here at the house and was able to do some "testing". I know why they didn't fly off the showroom floor. Not even in the same game as my KTM. The 650x wasn't a bad dualsport overall. The 450x didn't have the same Daddy as the 650x.

    I test rode both the 450 and the 650 at rock hill track and made better lap times with the 650 due to more forgiving suspension,(for my weight, anyway),,I thought the 450 was okay, but not impressive, my old '78 RM 250 woulda "smoked" it! I tried wringing its neck, but it never really lit off like a rocket should. and a rebuild after some sillyness like 80 hours!,,not a bike a poor man wants to own.

    And Thank you for your thankless never ending job of keeping the Flea Market free of useless blather :D



    I had seen that but haven't tried it yet, is it something that a computer illiterate person can do?
