    SO, I have seen some interesting ads on Craigslist. Some funny, some awful.

    This is probably the best/worst pic I have ever seen though.

    My buddy sent it to me, said he doesn't think he wants to go look at this one LOL

    Looks like a fine parts bike to me
     

  3. I would make the seller roll it outside before I looked at it. It looks like its in one of those traveling lion cages or something. You may end up in the cage with those martians!

    I want to go look at it just to ask them what's up with the mannequins LOL

    I told him to go, just take his wife since she has her carry permit - they are in New York

    (It looks like a mo-ped...)

    Honda 70 cc Mini-trails were green, as I recall.

    Not worth $25 in the current condition, imo...

    Mmm depends on what all is usable I guess, one of the guys on the DSRL boards rode one from New Orleans to Sturgis and back, then to Daytona bike week and back.

    My buddy who sent that knows where there are 2 110s. Haven't moved in years. He talked to the guy where they are, he's storing them for a buddy. He's hoping to pick them up, one will be for me to ride.....if the missus will let me get my permit/license
     
  11. This must be the once a year that we agree on something. :eek:

    One of my younger brothers had one. While not sporty enough for me to be a one and only, I did ride it for many hours.

    While the other Japanese companies had trail bikes, Honda did it right and the other quit making them.

    I just want to ride. I don't care if it is a moped.

    I have only ridden a dirt bike twice, maybe for a total of 1/2 hour. I have a few hours of 4 wheeling but mostly automatic 4x4s.

    Right now, I just a starter bike. I have a line on a Yamaha Exciter 250cc....it's just getting the wife to get on board.

    I really like street and trail bikes as the riding position seems right to me as I spent a lot of time on bmx bikes ( I used to race) and mountain bikes.

    Ultimately, I'd like a 500cc or so something or other to do in a bobber style,

    or possible a Harley Sportser. I like the simple looks.

    I can find 883 Sportsters for $3,000 all day on Craigslist.

    I also like the Honda Nighthawks...I like the sport bik/cruiser hybrid look.

    I used to have a trail 70 when I was about 13. Mine was a 4 speed with a manual clutch and was like a candy apple green. They did also come in a 3 speed with an automatic clutch and came in candy red, candy blue and gold.

    The original post, that does look like a trail 90. ;)

    trail 70....

    OOOOOH, I loved that one as a kid.
    Wanted one for years but stupid responsible parents wouldn't get me one.
    That was the coolest thing in green.
    That would have had me rolling like a boss at 10-12 years old.

    As someone with over a half million miles on basically every kind of bike, starting at age 4 on a honda Mr.50, to hare scrambling on 125s, to track days on a 650 sportbike, to owning a cruiser for like two weeks "all I could stand" to dual sporting on a 650 ds.

    Get something that is known to be dead reliable with no unique and severe issue "most bikes have them", it's best to start small and work your way up, by that I mean engine wise, you're a tall guy so there isn't bike made with a seat height you can't handle. don't buy anything you wouldn't kick over in the grass...because there will be drops, there will be gravel under the front tire, there will be all sorts of things that will break your heart with a sparkly new first bike lol.

    I would also recommend taking your local msf course, most state police offer a basic riders course for something like $150 and you'll learn things that 30 years of riding without the course won't teach you, plus they'll give you a bike to learn the basics on...the hd rider course is the same thing but costs twice as much and at least here the dmv won't give you an endorsement for completing the harley course without taking the whole test again.

    Also people buy big hulking or overpowered bikes far beyond their skill level because it "fits them" all the time, working in the industry idk how many people I've seen hurt or have their brand new bike totalled, or just extremely messed up. Buy one to fit your skill level, it's extremely easy to change the way it fits, higher or lower bars with more or less pull, thicker or thinner seats, adjustable pegs, tons of ways to make a bike comfortable, not as easy to make one lighter, less top heavy or less powerful.
