If you've ever Jonesed for an older dirt bike

Here ya' go!

FROM EBAY DESCRIPTION......You are bidding on a 1974 kawasaki 250cc dirt bike. It runs excellent and the tranny shifts smoothly. It looks a bit rough but is perfect for a starter bike or for someone who just wants to have a blast off-road. It is very fast and powerful, I have had no problems keeping up with the pack. The suspension is sound and has resevoir shocks in the rear, I don't know if they are factory or not. The front shocks do leak a bit of fluid but they are o.k.. I jump this bike all the time with no problems. The clutch is a little hard to pull back, I don't know if it is the cable or what else it could be. It works fine and does not slip or anything like that. The handle bars are bent a bit but with some leverage they could be good as new. I think this may have been an enduro or something because it used to have guages, rearview mirrors and lights. They are all missing now. It needs a new intertube in the front. and the back tire has a slow leak. the tread is good front and back. It is a 2-stroke with a mixer. It will start after just 2 or 3 kicks the first time and the first kick after its warmed up. This bike is beat up but runs great. If you are looking for a cheap bike that won't let you down out in the field, this is the one. Elkhorn, Nebraska
