Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

About 30 years ago my passion was collecting antique pedal cars made for children. I had about 60 vehicles in my collection ranging from 1915 to the late 1960s. Probably the coolest one was a D4 Cat that was made for two years (1951and 52 I believe). I had other cars too that I traded for or just flipped. I visited monthly toy shows around Chicago and the midwest. Couldn't get enough of it. The wife owned an antique shop so we were always at swap meets anyway. Then about 20 years ago reproductions hit the scene and vehicles that were worth $2000 went to $800 or less. I sold my lot out before the market completely collapsed! I adopted "pedalcrazy" from those days and it has just stuck with me. Steve Shoppa, Iowa.

Since I was a late teenager I have always had a Yamaha 175, I believe they were all CT2's as well!

I don't think this site had or has any rules on username... except maybe something that isn't family-friendly?

I joined pretty early on and I don't remember that anyway.

Replied by Enduro nut on topic Explain Your User Name

Im simply a NUT about these old enduro's especially the Yamaha's. No matter how many i buy it never seems to be enough! i currently have 10 bikes 6 of them being old Yamaha enduro's. They look good, they sound good, they last longer then modern junk, their fun to restore and ride as well! i find myself now buying parts for bikes i dont even have yet! but i know i will one of these days.

RT325 was just a guess at the cc that one of mine worked out at when i ran a 64mm stroke 250 crank in a 360. so 80x64 instead of 80x70. Of course i could have gone the other way as am also running a 360 70mm stroke crank in a 250, so 70x70 estimate 280cc someone said once.
