The silver one on the left a Honda Elsinore?
I wonder how the guy is making out I sold these to?
No, but I did have one of the first 2 Elsinore CR250R's in Oklahoma. The one in the picture is a 1972 Honda xl250. Going to the right are 2 1965 Honda Super Hawks, 1974 Honda 350 Four, 1982 Honda 500 Ascot and 1980 Honda CBX six-cylinder. I have owned more than 50 bikes over the years and always look in Craigslist to see what might be interesting. As I get older, I like to work on them more than I like to ride them. I started out on a 1959 Cushman Super Eagle and I still have scars from it.
I’ve got a 2020 F150 that’s becoming a project.. I’ll let it go real cheap, only $500 less than I paid!
Lol, a line from M.I.B. seems appropriate:
"You're scaring your partner..."
My first ride was my cousin's Hodaka. I got the bug and then bought a red, basket case, 69 Yamaha 175 Enduro. After piecing it back together I rode the wheels off that thing. I never could keep up with the other bikes because I had a 70 tooth rear 14 front but I could climb a tree. I think I have done every kind of wreck on a bike and yes I have the scars to prove it.
Hodaka Ace 90cc was my first motorcycle.
If you're at all a motorcycle guy and haven't done so, go to a Harley dealer and see if you can test ride the Live Wire. My son and I both took a test ride one morning; he took a nice long ride up onto I44, I just ran it up and down a few blocks of Peoria. That thing is stunningly quick - no shifting, and instant power delivery. I rolled into it and quickly backed off - I wasn't quite prepared for the instant acceleration. No build up like a gas engine. I'd like to take a Tesla for a spin.
How long did it take for you to get the stupid grin off of your face after you rode the Live-Wire?
