    restored this best as I could and sold it off last year. It was a fun bike. 1978 DT400.

    I bought this new back in 1998. I traded it off a little more than a year ago for a 2000 ZRX1100 Kawasaki which I'm loving, but I miss my beloved KTM. I tried to buy it back when the guy put it up for sale but I hesitated and missed it. Ya snooze ya lose.

    Got this a couple weeks ago to scratch that itch. 1990 version. Needs a few things changed out and the exhaust will be ceramic coated versus "upgraded" to aftermarket. Don't need loud, need fun and cheap. Yeah, it's a hoot on the two track around here.

    I got this in 2000. It was a non-running, no title, but mostly there bike. It's a '73 Yamaha AT 125. I put a little work and a few hundred dollars into it and now it is completely street-legal and rideable. I just rode it Saturday as a matter of fact.

    Some beautiful machines posted so far - I had the chance to get a DT400 like the one pictured earlier, but I missed it. Looked like a lot of fun.

    My own little slice of madness - 1977 Husqvarna WR250:

    And my very first motorcycle, wish I still had it. Dead reliable, never ever failed to start, gobs of torque. This is a picture I took after getting it out of a mudhole that went up to the top of the cylinder and riding it home.

    $200? Nice. I'd like to find something like that to play with. What'd you put into it?

    1976 Suzuki TC100 that I rescued, sounded awesome with that Bassani pipe, bike was street legal. One year I rode it from Simi Valley to the two stroke show at Woodley Park.

    Gave it to my brother who converted into a vintage DS racer.
