    A trip down memory lane...

    My first bike purchased new was a 1968 Yamaha DT1.

    A young Fast Eddie riding same:



    So this, seen yesterday at Barber, certainly tickled some memory synapses:





    But that price! Still, I bet there’s a buyer somewhere.

    Holy Crap, yeah I guess there is a buyer out there somewhere for it.

    Before I eventually settled on going back to a dual-sport I was looking for a late 60's/early 70's dirt bike. The problems in finding a nice one were many. Some were too beat up to consider. The decent ones that were kept in ok condition always seemed to lack paperwork (never registered/never titled). That becomes a nightmare at DMV in NY. Then there were the over-restored ones that could be in a museum or some hipsters garage. Finding nice with paperwork was like looking for Hen's Teeth.

    I would enjoy having that, but I remember paying $550, out the door, for a new AT2 in 1972.
    My wife had a CT2 and later I converted my AT2 to a 175cc.
