1970 Honda QA50. I can't imagine how many hours I spent in the backyard riding my loop track but I remember I didn't have to steer from the groove that was worn in the dirt.

My first motorized two-wheeler was a Honda Hobbit moped in high school. But it did not ignite any passion; it just got me around town until I could get a car. Pic below, except that mine did not have the windshield or bags.

My first real motorcycle was a 1976 Honda CB360T, bought at a garage sale for $25 (including helmet). Pic below also, of one the same as mine was, but in better shape than mine.

First street bike was a 95 katana. Piece of shit. I liked riding... but i hated that bike.


Still on the quest to find the perfect bike. I think I'm going to have to build it, honestly.

At 10 yrs old, got this one:
CHP Motorsports CLASSIC HONDA PRIVATEER RACING Honda Mini Trails Honda mini bikes and Honda Z50 Honda 50 Honda Minitrail NOS Parts and services Kitaco and Takegawa performance parts.

Funny story on the z50 that I had then:
had it modded out, lol, cut part of the muffler off to make it really loud, got special brackets for the handlebars so I could mount motocross style handle bars on it, and put a quick twist throttle on it that got it to full throttle with just a 1/4 turn of the original.


At 14, got this one:
http://www.vintagemx.us/guestbook/im...3_ATMX_125.jpg

Modded the yamaha out too:
Easy mod it was to do though. went to the Yamaha dealer, bought a 175 cyl and piston, slapped them right on; then went to the swap meet with a friend an found a Hodaka high comp head that fit right on the cylinder. Also got a 250cc carb for it too. Bought a J&B down pipe for it too and it took off really fast( or at least I thought it took off fast at the time, lol).

Wow those monkey bikes bring back memories. The rich kids had the bikes with suspensions I just had hard tail and forked minibikes. My first street bike was a 1983 V45 Sabre.

Ain't nobody got time for that!
