Look what followed me home the other day! 1983 Yam DT 100 with 430 original miles.
Typical long-layup issues-clogged pilot circuit, leaky petcock, broken kill switch, a little rust here and there and no air filter element. Parts have been ordered to straighten it all out. Came with a new battery and a shop manual.
Close, I got the petcock seals replaced today after it dumped fuel all over the bike. Hopefully in the next few days.
Any info on the event/year/rider in that Penton pic?
No sir I'm afraid not.
Oh good golly, I want to thrash that machine

Simply the essence of a front fender.
Minimalist for sure!
Having grown weary of broken connecting rods and broken frames from pushing 125's beyond their limits I got this in late 1970. Traded broken metal parts for broken bones. These were pretty fast for their day. Kawasaki to me baby!
Had a silver Bushwacker 175 back then and loved it. It was a quick little bike. Always wanted a Bighorn but maybe it's a good thing I didn't get one.
Garry is this picture shot in Bakersfield, Ca. east side of town?
We called those "Anklewacker 175". There were several in our dirt bike riding group because we had a great Kawasaki dealership in Tulsa, Action Cycles, Hoodoo. I replaced the Bighorn with an F81M.
