Default Check out my new hog!

My wife's grandfather bought this new in '71. He brought it up from FL this week and gave it to us. It has a fuel tank leak and a 20 year old dry rotted front tire but other than that looks to be in good mechanical condition.



Honda Mini Trail Z50 A K2 for those who are interested. 50 CC engine that gets 157 MPG. The wife says I am not allowed to ride it to work <G>...

She should have said that you weren't allowed to post pictures of yourself on the net either. LOL. Seriously that's a cool little toy.

I had a 50cc sportbike, I think it was a yamaha TZR-50 or YSR-50, can't remember which. It was SLOW compared to the SV1000.

My picture is on so many of those "locate child molesters" sites that I don't worry about it any longer. <G>

Yes, it is slow. Not a bad thing because I would probably be dead if I had a fast bike. I used to ride them but I am smart enough to know that I am too much of a speed freak to use one safely.

That is an awesome bike. I drove one of those when I was younger. I think it was a different year though...because mine had rear suspension...
