:D Well actually it's a Yamaha...but hey...

87 Yamaha TW200

I called my bro-in-law and asked if he knew of any cheap...REALLY cheap bikes for sale, about 20 mins later he says his buddy has one, $100...in the Town he's getting married in that weekend...hmmm...oh and we are bringing back a U-haul trailer with some of my :Princess:'s grandma's stuff...yes! It' some older yamaha with big wheels...hmmm sure, I can talk :Princess: into that....maybe :eek:

Finally on sunday my bro-in-law calls and says the guy says we can just have it :eek::eek::eek: Niice! scored bike for free!

So it needs some work:

New battery, new rear fender and just some TLC...but for free! WOOT. I just found a whole 87 being parted out, so I"m getting lots of parts to replace :beer: This could be MUCH cheaper wheeling for me this year lol.

Those are very popular and sought-after trail plunkers for low intensity trail enjoyment. You scored!
Two wheeled ATV, basically.

I used to have one of those, they are great to mess around on and ride medium trails. also great for the camping/pit areas. Great deal, I'll give ya $110 bones for it:rolleyes:

There was a guy at CM this year riding a really nice one around Slickrock campground. Looks like fun.
