BUILT A VINTAGE GAINT KILLER....
PATTI'S 1ST MOTORCYCLE~.
This is my wife's first motorcycle. I bought the bike for one hundred dollars and "cleaned" it up! She rode the bike (all original) in Daytona and everyone loved it! Perfect size, cute and fun to ride. Her favorite thing to do is watch people and their reaction to her "little" bike and if she sees you laughing - she will (without hesitation) come up to you and ask "Are you laughing at my bike" the general response to those looking is "No way we are remembering what we used to do on it!" or "This was my first bike when I was young" The bike continues to be a great conversation piece! And upon her upgrade to the blue 1975 250 Kaw which I found for her in Daytona 2000 we plan to put the 90cc Kaw on a SHELF!
