    Bought this from a friend for my daughter to ride. The only time she rode it was around my side yard and on the third lap she ran into my AC unit [​IMG] . Daughter, bike and AC were all unharmed but that was the last yard ride dad could handle. In retrospect maybe a MX bike wasn't the best choice for her to learn on.

    I replaced the following:
    Grips
    Muffler Packing
    Coolant
    Brake Fluid
    Spark Plug
    Carb jets

    What it needs:
    One of the seat bolts is stripped. I don't think cleaning it with a tap is going to be sufficient to fix it. Probably just put a longer bolt through and a nut on the backside.
    After getting it all cleaned up it ran great and didn't smoke, when we got it the jetting was set to mosquito fogger. Starts on 1st or second kick but like a moron I left the petcock on after terrorizing the neighborhood one afternoon. Now it bogs off idle then hits hard.[​IMG]

    I'm the third owner and I have no idea how many hours it has on it or if it's ever been rebuilt. I suspect many hours and never rebuilt but it still pulls my rather substantial butt around at scary speeds and power wheelies in 3rd gear even with the bog.

    Includes a set of cheap new tires and lots of wheelies.

    Asking $1200 obo

    All pictures taken yesterday. If you want photos of something specific just ask.

    I would really like to trade for a small/short dual sport with electric start and a title. I'm pretty open to other trades, like a PCC for IDPA use, as well but I don't have any cash to put into the deal.

    Bump
    Pretty much given up hope on the dual sport trade let's talk about guns and gear.
