  • There's a special place in my heart for mini bikes

    My first ride way back in the beginning was a mini bike. Me and my neighborhood buddies rode the crap out of it. Loved that bike. Over the years i have owned others and even restored a few.
    Started to get the itch again, Then I came across this. Definitely not the mini bike I grew up on.

    I once had a CB750, it sure didn't look anything like that. That'd be a scary ride; not sure I'd trust that tiny little rear drum brake to stop you.

        This is what I learned to ride on. Even though it was just last year

          From time to time I think having a Honda grom or a Kawi z125 to play around on.

            Oh, the memories! I was very lucky to have a SL-70 for my first bike. Living in Kayenta, Az. by Monument Valley 1970 thru 73, I could go anywhere, north, south, west, or east for 20 miles from our home. $0.25 would fill up the tank and go for the day. I do miss those days. Steve McQueen, Peter Fonda, and Evil Knievel were my heroes. Been on motorcycles ever since then.

              God, how I wish I had some pictures of my little creation. I grafted a Harley Z90 engine into my min bike frame. Wore out quite a few sets of sneakers that summer. No brakes at all other than foot power.

                I learned on a red honda 50 minitrail when I was 8 years old, we then got a blue Honda 70, the rest is history... At 55 years old I’m riding a RS and in the midst of rebuilding a Honda CX500.
