I had a Cub (50cc) when we lived in Japan for 4 years (59-63). It would not do more than 35mph. I burnt the motor up and took it to a Honda shop and only cost $35 to rebuild the motor, of course back the 365 yen equaled $1.

and have had 28 more since then (1 Suzuki, 1 Yamaha, 3 Kawas and 24 Hondas)

I got a pair of mini bikes for some work I did on a fellow's car, a Rupp and a Honda Mini Trail I fixed the Rupp and sold it, kept the Mini Trail and eventually both my sons rode it to death and I resurrected it 3 times. I picked up a Kawasaki 3 wheeler that was in boxes and rode that thing around for quite some time, my son couldn't keep up so I got a few Trail 70 bikes. I converted one to a 3 wheeler by adding an ATV rear axle and made the swing arm to hold it in. First 3 wheeler I ever saw with full suspension. a couple of bolts and a chain and it was back to a bike. Have owned a few bikes, last one was my favorite, 1984 Gold Wing. Sold it after I got my Pure.
