Just re-joined Planet Mini's. Haven't logged on in a long time and may have gotten lost in the shuffle.
Owned this one since early 70's.
Started my first bike shop in my parents garage at age 15.
Guy brought this one in for 2nd gear repair. Bill was under $100. Owner (and a friend), said he didn't have the cash and to just keep it.

First kick for 45+ years. All my kids (and a few of their friends) learned to ride on this one on my old QA50.

Pics taken a few years ago, 2014 I think.

1972 checking in here. Not much original here beyond the frame, fenders, swing arm, and speedo (lol). Lifan 125cc that I'm still struggling to get tuned right but it is street legal and registered! I'm still torn as to whether I am happy with how much I invested into a bike that really only retained a serial number but I learned a lot! I could use some tips on cleaning up my cables in front beyond going with the whole integrated headlight basket.
