Member Info: I collect and restore vintage dirtbikes, I trail and pit ride a bit every year; I pride myself as being one of the few who still ride motocross, when the majority up here ride quads and "side by sides." My old junk doesn''t carry much for resale value when Im finished fixing them up, but ... I am always looking for more.

1981 Yamaha MX 100

Photos: 13
Purchased: May 1995
Info: This is my 2nd bike. I purchased it from a friend for $280.00 back in 1995. This is as close to factory original as I can get it with my budget and experience. This is the best shape it has been in since long before I obtained it.

1977 Honda XL 175

Photos: 8
Purchased: Sep 2009
Info: Bike started with little trouble after sitting in the weather for more than a few years. Difficult to get even the most common parts for, so everything has to come from E Bay and wreckers. Top and bottom end of engine is rebuilt. Front shocks, wheel bearings and brakes, all cables, and carb rebuilt. Headlight and switch, exhaust and seat replaced.

Purchased: Sep 2009
Info: Has most of the parts, although much needs refurbishing / replacing. Motor had the top-end rebuilt, but was never started or installed. If the engine runs I will restore this into a trail bike.
1984 Honda XR 200

Purchased: May 2011
Info: Bike starts without trouble, and runs, but is a bit low on compression. The exhaust is still intact, and most components still function well but a few parts have been improperly repaired or are missing, along with the proper front fender.

Purchased: Aug 2011
Info: This bike has 1028 original Kms. It is 100% original and has spent most of its life in storage under different owners. It needs a new battery and is a bit low on compression; otherwise it is ready to insure and ride around my small town.
 
 Past:
1976 Yamaha IT 400

Photos: 1
Purchased: Jun 1999
Info: I obtained this bike from the abandoned Mining town of Cantung, NWT in 1999. It ran and was very powerful, but was wore out and I had neither the money or knowledge to refurbish it. The bike was left at the wrecker yard in Watson Lake YT.
1978 Honda XL 70

Photos: 3
Purchased: May 1992
Info: My first bike. Purchased from my Bro for $180.00 in the spring of 1992. The spark plug was cross threaded so we tried to remove the head (not knowing the difference of a 4 stoke) and was not able to get the timing chain put back on. We shot at the motor with rifles and threw it into the lagoon. An inglorious end to an otherwise very reliable bike.

Info: This bike has a 100 cc rotary valve engine that was completely wore out. (Along with everything else about the bike) The tank is supposed to be a lighter shade of Lime Green and the fenders; white.
