BIGGUS-Jack Penton designed/built his own bikes from the start-KTM stepped in when he was stepping out--There was a 1hr story on penton last week---I actually rode with the Pentons in 1974 in elmsford ny---they showed up with 2 vans full of new bikes--rode and shot the **** all day--JOHN

We've got a Penton 125 (green tank, I think) that we need to sell (at the bike/jetski shop). Runs great. Needs very little to be perfect. Tank excellent, leather tank strip intact. Speedo cracked, but have a fresh one for it. Biggus, you know Anybody that might be interested?

Jan, my buddy also has an intact and good-running IT490 if you're interested. Pretty sure its a 5-speed. His kids just got into bikes and stuff, but they have all gravitated towards 4-wheelers and now he has no use for the big Yammer. It kind of scares him, anyhow.

I also got a few old geezers in my collection:
1974 XL250 with a Powroll hi-comp piston.
old Vespa
1978 RM80
1973 Z50
1974 XR75
Got a Husky 390, also (sold my 74 Husky 250CR last yr)

I'm currently looking for an old-man dirtbike.
Either a fairly current KDX200/220 or a thumper hotrod
along the lines of a WR250/426/450 or KLX300 or Suzook DRZ250/400 (with the electric leg). Would also consider any raging deal on a lesser thumper (TTR225/250, XR250/400).
I need something to ride with my kids. I still got my old batch of mxers that are in ready-to-race condition, but they just aren't the ticket for trail riding with 10-yr olds (stop-n-go is hard on me since I fall over a lot in the woods going slow - never could touch the ground on my mxers, but didn't need to like you do in the woods).
