My eerste bike. 1965 Ducati Mountaineer. Ongelukkig kan ek nie my fotie opspoor nie, maar hy het net so gelyk.
Gekoop by 'n bankrot motorfiets winkel in Vryheid KZN vir R100.00  
R1 vir elke CC  :imaposer:
Hom OP gery en toe die crank breek moes ek hom weggmaak... kon daai tyd nie parte kry nie.
Onthou nog goed toe ek hom vat om deur die toets te gaan....daai voorvurke het BIETJIE play gehad. Ek is terug huis toe en my pel het agter gesit met voorwiel in die lug sodat vurke bietjie uitkom.... toe draai ek so paar lagies MASKING Tape om en ry terug.... Deur toets soos blits  :ricky:

Nou wens ek ek het hom nog gehad...... :drif:

Yamaha rz50 in 1983. Was cool bike and cleaned up a lot of other bikes. But then 80cc motors found their way into the AR50's and 100cc's into MB5's,then it was tickets for me. Before that only rode off road on yz80.

Had a similar one to this, exactly! Suzuki TS125, 400 frame and 125cc engine. Got it when I was 16, replaced my mtb as primary transport. Blew the head twice, bent the piston arm once, crached it twice. Even after all that, it just kept on going until I sold it when I got my car licence.

Loads of fun!  :read:
