    Bought this 68 Trail 90 about 20 years ago for $75 to use as a spare beater. After a few years the engine died and fixing it would cost way more than the bike was worth so it went to the junk pile in the back yard for 15 years. A few years ago I discovered Lifan replacement engines and after transplanting one into another bike I decided bring this one back to life. It is used as a bumper rack bike on my camper and a bike for my daughter to ride mostly off road though it's licensed, insured, and street legal. I have a total of about $600 into it.
