I'm still around and still riding my T-Dub, but my wife, son , daughter and myself are all racing MX and hare scrambles now, so the dual sportsdon't get out as much these days.



My latest venture is just now coming together for vintage hare scrambles. Managed a 40 mile stint on her this past weekend and it ran great. Bike was given to me by the original owner and had been sitting since the late 70s. Engine is new, top and bottom.

It's a 125, so you have to work to ride it. Your body makes up the bulk of the suspension.

Sets me off to thinking about my Hodaka's from way back when. I loved that little 100. He'll; I could pick it up all by myself. Could really throw it around on the trails. I think it had less travel than my TW.

That 125 is beautiful!

What a keeper you have there.

And what a friend you have to give it to you!

Hey man! We were out at T-cross a few weeks ago with the club. We brought our modern bikes as well as the Elsie. We camped all weekend. Dean treats us really good.

Elsinore is running great.



T-dub decided to plug up her pilot jet yesterday. Played hell getting it cleared out, rest of carb looked spotless.

Well, a day after I put up my previous post, the CDI in my Elsie gave up the ghost while riding our club's hare scramble property. Finished out the day without issue on the TW trail horse.



New CDI showed up for the Elsinore yesterday and it runs better than ever! WAY more overrev, so something has been up with the old CDI all along.



Looks like the old CR might be ready for our upcoming hare scramble in February.....

My Doctor has an old Husky 400 that has set for 20 years. Hmmmm...Wonder if there's still a place to get parts?

No doubt, the internet makes it much easier to find part. I would bet they are available, I see quite a few restored Huskys.



Recently I found a very complete - running condition - Penton/Sachs in WPB. I had been told about this bike a few years ago, but didn't follow up on it. It belongs to a co-worker and wouldn't you know it, he's another original owner. Bike has been sitting in his living room for a couple of decades. It is not weathered. Waiting on numbers, but it initially sounds realistic.
