Kick n Go

In the mid 1970's, Honda introduced a toy scooter called the "Kick n Go". Pretty basic, you stand on it and kick a pedal to make it go forward and then it's got a grip brake on the handlebar like a bicycle.

Very front-heavy and so kids did faceplants and they eventually took them off the market, but now it's a neat piece of merchandise for the old-school Honda enthusiast like myself.

I picked this one up on eBay for $35 shipped a few weeks ago and I also ordered a new OEM sticker set. I'll be tearing it down, cleaning it up, and respraying it some proper Honda color.

Ugly Bike

I've had this 2003 250EX sitting in my garage since before Christmas. The carbs need to be cleaned badly, it won't start at all. Not sure if it's going to get sold or become a streetfighter project. I think I'd rather sell it and look for a CB750. I guess I'll learn how to take a bike apart though.

Damn it.

I appear to have a short-nose crank problem after you can tell.

On the upside, apparently Miatas are really easy to work on, much simpler than any Honda I've touched or an S-chassis. I spent a total of maybe 4 hours getting everything taken apart, working only from "garage" section printouts.

1.6L Grainger manual is in the mail.
