    BW or PW80 in Central MA?


    i'm looking to pick up a BW or PW80 to rip the yard with my kids ... i have like $500 to spend on a solid running rat.

    anyone have or know of one around central MA? i'd also be interested in other minis that an adult could hoon on.

    thanks!

    But a BW80 is a proper hoonmobile.

    hear that, but they won't budge on the price insane what those things fetch.

    actually, we're screwed in general in New England. piles of shit for top dollar. fark that. the Worcester bikes are the best.

    man that BW 80 is a $1,500 bike in LA too

    the PW80 is closer to your budget tho

    yeah, the BW's always go for top dollar but a lot of the other stuff i've been looking at is priced really high, too. makes you wonder what they end up going for eventually.

    i feel like a rare bird because i fucking wash a bike before i sell the damn thing

    yes, i will end up with a PW80 w/shock extender and tall bars or an XR80/100 most likely. still pissed i missed out on that '86 XR. thing was awesome.

    Re: BW or PW80 in Central MA?

    what's the appeal of the BW?

    are big tire bikes just fun to ride like a TW200?

    and did XR's go up in value? i bought an '80r in woosta for $350 IIRC in 2005ish

    i know they did in socal after mini moto got popular...now they are $800-$1,100 bikes

    other less popular models - suzuki ds80 or china pit bikes

    yes, the fat tires on the BW are the appeal. i will just be leading the kids around a small track in the yard so it's perfect to bang around on.

    yes, XR's def went up. really would love an '86 or '87.

    i started looking at TTR125s as well ... budget might increase to around $750. the wife just said to wait until winter, prob a good idea.

    yes, saw that one, thanks. tried contacting but was getting errors, i'll try again. would be curious what they want for the 230 but don't think i want a bike that big.

    shock extender (until i can find a KX60 shock), rear tire, tube, air filter, plug, throttle tube ordered. chopping silencer up to remove the cone and veins inside, shorten it, perforate the tube and wrap in 2T packing, check for the restrictor plate in header pipe, open up the airbox...

    ride it. jet it ... THEN black

    before


    after: 4” rear lift, blue ano wider bars, black brake lever, new throttle tube, fresh grips, fresh MX52 rear + tube, drilled silencer w/fresh packing (sounds so good! quiet), fixed kicker position and degreased motor. oil injection delete and jetting next...
