I picked up some more crap to add to my junk parts collection this week at an old bike shop.Does it make you an old fart if you know what any of it is?Remember when you bought numbers at the local bike shop(if you didn't use electrical tape)and stuck them on yourself?How about all of the cool DG crap?grin

I picked that crap up at an old Zuki dealer out of state.I try to stop at any old dealers that I run aross in my travels when I can.I stopped at an old Honda dealer in UT a while back that still had a poster up with the "new" '79 CR250 and '79 XR500!One dealer I stopped at out west still had a new 1987 Honda on the floor!That was last summer.

what makes me feel old is each time i look at your avatar. I use to have an '75 xr75 back in the day. red of course. I thought i would be cool and painted it metal flake red.

i think my mom ended up selling in a garage slae for $100 when i was off to college one year.

DOH!...........$100??You can't buy much of a XR75 for that these days.I got my brothers '76 XR75 back in '82.That thing was fast!He still has that old POS.Three of us ragged it out.It's too bad off to restore,but it's still there in my dad's shop.Good times!One of these days I'll get off my @$$ and fix a monoshock XR75.I started on a PK package bike 3 1/2 years ago.I finally gave up on it a few months ago and hauled it off.The swingarm is still at the machine shop where it got a new set of brass bushings made up and pressed in over three years ago.Pretty sad........

That xr 75 was the first motorcycle my father bought me. It was the first one I had to use the clutch to change gears lol then I took it apart because I wanted to go faster and was never able to put it back together... lol
