First Bike I Ever Had...

First Bike I Ever Had...

This is a picture of a bike just like mine.It is a 1972 CT 70 Honda "Trail 70".Mine was the clutchless automatic transmission.I rode that bike for years(got it when I was 5)then let my dad trade it off for a pile of shit Yamaha 125 (late 70's).About 10 years ago,my dad and I had a junk hauling business.We bid and won a garage clean out job.In amongst all the crap was another Trail 70!This one was orange but was totally complete.After talking to the old woman who owned the garage it turned out that her grandson had owned the bike and had outgrown it.It went into gramma's garage and was buried in the mess.We discovered it in cleaning out the garage.The woman gave us the title for it and between me and my dad we keep it around to ride for fun from time to time.It will only go about 35 with my happy reminising ass on the back of it but who is counting?...These little bikes are worth quite a bit around here now.a good original in running condish is going for 3000 bucks!But we keep the one we have for memory sake and hope to let my kids ride it too...as long as they dont wreck it!

Hey, this is the first bike I had as well! They are going for big money restored! Mine was gold if I remember correctly. We called it the popcorn machine. I bought it without an exhaust. It took me awhile to find one. Ran great.

Mine too

My brother and I pitched in all of our savings when we were 11 yo and Dad made up the difference. He got the XR75 and I got the CT. Mine was red as well.

One lung. Yeah, I jonsed for the QA50 and the trail 70 but my dumbass older brother couldn't keep his hide off the pavement or gravel. Mom put the quaitus on bikes so I got my own when I got my own money. Not so much as a scratch on me from a bike wreck.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

After the 'hand

me down' TM-75, I rocked a Suzuki DR-370, after that a Yamaha TT-500. A few years later I started racing 125 intermediate on a KX-125....till' I kept getting hurt, then mom put the kibosh on my Motocross career.....That was back in the day when Roger Decoster was the man to beat.
