MY FIRST BIKE

It's a 1975 Kawasaki KV75.
Two stroke, air cooled, 3 speed automatic.

MT1C 1975

I was 5. My dad would hold it for me when I got on because I was too short to touch the ground. When it was time to stop, I would call for him and would pull up next to him and he'd catch me and hold the bike so I could get off of it. If he wasn't around, I would just throw it down . Come to think of it, nothing's really changed

Lots of good memories on that bike. I had it for about 10 years and used it for a pit bike when I raced motocross as a boy.


Let's see yours

Spoiled brats.

All I got was a birthday card with a picture of some kid riding his dirt bike.

Kinda looked like you now that I think about it.

Ohh well, I'm making up for it now.
