    I got this pic off the web, but it's the same bike. A Gemini Boss 80 when I was 13, 40 years ago.
    Biggest POS out there. I still rode the snot out of it for a few months.
    This bike thought me the value of quality, or lack thereof.

    My first bike? A Voshkod 175 which I prosaically named 'Lenin's Lament' - it never ran properly, if at all. A short while later I graduated to a Ural 650 called 'Trotsky's Tractor'.
    Picture off the 'net, but mine was the same colour and about as rusty too. Cost? Free!... but I had to push it three miles home :)

    And veering wildly off thread (the bike couldn't hold a line either) here is Trotsky's Tractor! circa 1980/81, complete with Jackson 5 hairdo
