Who among you was fortunate enough to be allowed a mini bike before you were of legal driving age, becoming the envy of all kids within riding distance? Who cared if it was only 2hp, it was 2 wheels and a motor!
Which bike did you have? Any memorable (or even painful) mini bike stories? Don't you wish you had it back to go with your XR??
One of my favorite yearly events to attend has been Joe's Mini Bike Reunion at Crescenta Valley Park in La Canada, California. Classic restored minis, monster minis, rolling mini-works of art, about a hunnert or so to satisfy your trips down memory lane. Or maybe...you may get the urge to get working on your own creation..?
The show seems to be getting larger, and has been covered by Hot Rod Magazine, Roadkill, etc.
This year's show is Saturday, October 19th from 8 am-3 pm. Look for me with my painfully restored 1968 Bonanza BC1300 (Although I may cut out early, as my GF got us Pat Benatar tickets for that evening).
I also have a restored 1969 Taco 22, as well as a 1970 Schwinn Stingray. I take these to classic car shows and they get more attention than the cars!
Hope to see some of you there, guarantee you'll love it!
