    I have been a motorcycle/bicycle enthusiast since 1974. I bought my first motorcycle in May 1977 for $460 brand new it was a '77 honda XR75. I really loved that little bike it was bullet proof. Then a '77 Yamaha YZ80D it was a fast bike. Then I bought a used 1975 Yamaha DT 125 and a brand new in the box 1975 Yamaha RD 200 for $595 in 1978. plus assorted bikes like 250 Bultaco it was a strange bike brake and kickstart on the left and shifter on the right and a 1978 CAN-AM 250 Qualifier it really flied. I always was interested in motorbicycling I'm on my 2nd and 3rd build right now . 1st build was a bronze Cranbrook with black 66cc kit (it was stolen) , 2nd build '13 Nel Lusso with black 66cc kit plus assorted goodies, and I'm in the planning stage for a 1998 Cannondale F900 police bike can fit 66cc with some minor fabbing and mods. I am also an MMI Phoenix Harley Davidson Technician since 2005 and Automotive Technician since 1979. So I have extensive mechanical experience. If anyone needs any technical help just ask .

    Hey you need a motor on your bike to get back home after being stuffed with some good cajun food.
