  1. Such an awesome Learners bike!!!!!!


  2. My first was an 83 RD250LC. Oh yeah.

    This isnt a pic of my exact bike - but its the closest example I could find. Except mine had a red tank sprayed from an aerosol can (badly) and then filled with dents, dings and scratches (at least when I was done with the poor girl). And the *WHOLE* rear frame from the tank backwards had been home bodged with a welder and some bits of tubing so that the tool bag could fit a one piece seat on there. (Again, homemade and shite looking). When I ended up replacing the rear end, I just ripped all that crap off. BY HAND. Such was the quality of the welding.

    Ah the invincibility of youth...
