If you learn to ride good, and there around the same size. Your bike is built more for cruisen. It won't take to hard of a beating, but should hold up for plenty of sunday rides.

Yeah, I was not planning on doing any jumping or racing with it. It should be okay for some trail rides and hills and stuff,right. because there is this network of trails behind the feilds next to my house I have wanted to ride on for forever. I think is built sturdy enough for that.

I think you're going to have to just find out.

I'd get a can of engine degreaser and clean everything throughly. Change the plug(s), flush and top off all the fluids, etc... and go find out what it can do :) Start easy, and let it warm up before you start revving it hard.

Let us know how it goes. Great find.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

how much do you think it's worth. I'm not going to sell it or anything, but I'm just curious. I plan to ride the snot out of it. not jumps or races, but I am going to ride it a ton.

Go to www.kellybluebook.com type in info and it should give you a average. A lot of used dealers go to it for a referance.

thanks. it doesn't have dirt bikes on it , though, only street bikes. but a similar cc street bike in good condition goes for a whopping $220 at a dealership.

I have some other old motorcycles that I use parts off of,and one of them was a kawasaki with the exact same clutch cable. I took it off and installed it , no problem. I then took it for a ride It is a VERY
peppy little machine. very fun,shifting is very easy. I AM SO ESTATIC RIGHT NOW!!!
