    The young'ens are a little too kewl for that today. Looking back, it was kinda hokey..but fun. :grin:

    In the early '60s Mattel made a plastic engine that hung from the top tube and made battery operated sounds.. Hahaha!

    my parents ran with the gin & squirt/pinochle crowd...they were pretty picky about the cards, so the whole neighborhood had plenty of cast-offs...i'd love to be able to post some pics of this flashback, we'd plaster them along the whole stay...wutta ruckus 5 or 6 of us would make on a summer's day :D

    Yep, I did that a time or two. I also remember doing stupider things like seeing what would happen if I rubbed my front tire up against my buddies rear wheel when we were both pedalling as hard as we could on a gravel road......I think I still have a few small stones imbedded in my rump from that escapade.

    I love sound of a hog but for reliability and comfort honda wins hands down as long as 2 things are watched closely.

    Change that timing belt even when you don't think you need to. If it ever does break while going down the road you are going to be replacing valves and possible pistons.

    Hope you never ever ever ever burn you stator out. That sucker is located in the center of the engine and is a royal PITA to get to. So much so i've seen some older wings with a rigged outside alternator since fabbing one of those up can be less expensive and less labor intensive then pulling the stator.

    You bet I did!

    And I had forgotten all about those imitation motors, but I remember them now. Seems to me I thought those were pretty cool.

    I had to steal the family UNO cards since we didn't have playing cards. Needless to say, after a summer of stealing a few cards here and there, UNO was a short game.

    yes -- that (sweet card sound) so we thought anyway

    was getting us ready for the REAL THING

    kids have a way of knowing what they want..

    isn't it fun watching those little ones light up with joy as they say

    Yup, I did it too. The funny thing I saw recently was one day I was riding my Whizzer around the neighborhood. Before I even put the bike away, several kids started riding their bicycles around with cards in the spokes.

    The old bike card trick

    I sure did I wonder how many mikey mantel and willey mays cards I chewed up that way, as a matter of fact I just showed my grandson that trick the other day. He thought it was the coolest thing he's seen. I showed him how to use card board though! not my ball cards. Dane

    Yea...but the cards had to be new and crisp! We would attach four cards with clothes-pins. What a sound! Ya had to have the little pieces of leather strap around the axles to keep em' shiny too.
