I reckon looking at the seat yours was a 125.

[/quote]Thanks for the pics,it must be a 125cc, do you know the make of the motor? The red frame also look interesting, fit the bike and the whole 60's 70's idea. The tank i think is also orig. it wont take a lot of fuel,won't go to far.

The 1 front light, rear light bracket,frame,wheels,seat(whithout steel inlay),i think is still orig.

Front light like this (50cc)?



Seat like this (125cc)?


Motors were Minarelli I think

IT 465 - around 1987.
Also taken in the empty Beaufort West dam.
That dam broke a lot of bones in the 80's.

sien ek nou eers die thread..

ek leer ry toe op n kx65 - erens op n plaas n beaufort wes. ek was gese ek mag nie gears change nie , omdat die ding te vinnig is. lank rond geploeter toe ondek ek 2de en 3de rat.

TOE BLIKSEM EK NEER.

anyways toe kry ek n Honda C90 3speed automatic.. i loved the bike till the petrol tube corroded and the bike never started again.



Toe kry ek n MBX50 - ek was 13. Bosson exhuast .... ek was die miskiet op Riebeek wes.

Many times i was pulled off for riding without that thing they called a license and i was always instructed..

stoot hom huistoe ... LOL ya right!



then it seized .. and i sold it.

got a Suzuki GT200 2 smoke... Rode it like i stole it... 1st bike i had that did 160kph - That things Rpm's ran at through the red @ 3 o clock and ended up at 7 most the time .



then my 1st dirtbike..

YAMAHA DT/AG175.  bought it for 3000 and the very same day the chain snapped and bent the clutch pin.

sorted that out and got a flat tire.  then the clutch cable snapped.

ai it was a bad luck bike.




then after that i got to the superbike market ... and splashed alot of money on crotch rockets.

untill i found dirt a couple of years ago..

Me on my Yammie 600 TT and my son on his Yammie 50. Check the similar colour schemes. My son rode this bike a while, but decided that he like surfing more.

btw, I sold the TT for R6k and threw the 50 into the deal in '92

Yup, it was fun to do the bike thing together. When my son took to surfing we did that together and had lots of fun. Since he left home, I now reverted back to my first love, bikes !!

The TT was probably the best offroad bike I ever had, but I never tried it on longer runs (than 100-200kms). I think on longer rides the 'geel kameel' is king ......
