    Not good.

    he's 7. And he's doing pretty good. I had a guy bring in a artic cat kitty cat sled the other day for me to fix, I asked him if he'd sell it and he did. I bought it for $100 and put 30 mins of work into it and it runs pretty good. We have aloe of snow so I let him go out and putt around on it for a little bit. Nothing big I rigged it so it will only go about 1/2 of its top speed wich was already ridiculously slow. He just went big ovals threw the yard.

    I'm already hearing it! He acts the same as normal, wich is the worse part! He's been working (sitting as I kinda tell him and show him how to fix stuff) with me in the shop today, he came out about 9 o'clock and said " if I can't go to school, atleast I can learn about stuff I like" lol.

    I think he can handle it, he ran jays small wheel around the track and did great, but he is only 7.. I felt like I got him on the 65 a little early, but if I get him an 85 as soon as he can ride again, he'll be on a 125. By the time he's 10! LOL.

    Thank you all! Yea he's pretty unbelievable! He's been going on all night " did you order my bike parts yet?" LOL. The worse part is, he asked me once when his mom was in the other room he asked if I could get him an 85.. I'm tempted.. But I can't do it. I think I'll keep him on the 65 till he can ride /race again, and maybe next year I'll get him An 85..

    So I haven't been on for a week or two. My boy wrecked his 65.. Just got outta the hospital today, he wrecked on the 11th. We were riding at a personal indoor track, he Came out of a turn and there's a big triple that you can jump as a double(obviously) he was hitting the double all day, I told him do not hit the triple cause his bike wouldn't clear it. He decided to go for it I guess.. Came up short, hit the backside if the landing ramp, flew up over the bars, smacked down and rolled for a little bit. The damn kid jumped back up and ran to his bike, got his bike up as I got there, he said he was fine. I had him sit down. He say on a bench for about 20 minutes and I realized he looked like he was in Lala land. He started coughing, and he spit up a pile of blood.. We headed to the ER. Turns out he broke 3 ribs, had a pretty severe concusion(isn't. Aloud back to school or to do (basically) anything for atleast six months, he has a doctors appointment every two weeks till he's better.) he also broke his collar bike. The docs said that with how hard he hit that he couldn't feel anything with the concusion.. He had surgery on his shoulder and it'll be in a sling for up to a year. Could be 2 months they said, could be a year. Anyways I posted this here to say that if it wasn't for his gear, the docs said he probably wouldn't be here today.. He was wearing a leatt neck brace, Thor chest protector(did allot of good huh), and a cheapo (I know...) HJC helmet. The bikes fine, just bent bars, broke plastics, cracked clutch lever and hang guard. I can't beleive the forks aren't bent. Sorry for the long wright up, but it's been tough. The track was 2 hours from our house so we were in a hospital we've never seen let alone been in before. Were all home an sound now. I asked him why we tried to hit the triple and his exact words were "jay can do it and I'm better than him!"(jays a kid(12) who races 85s)

    Is it weird that when I get a new bike it has a name within 24 hours? Bought a 96 kx250 last night. It's called mean green(bett you can't guess were that cans from..)

    I've got a fresh set of forks that were just rebuilt with a triple tree, a freshly rebuilt rear shock, and a 2003 kx250. Motor that will need a top end and a clutch cover. If anyone's interested I'd sell them or even trade for parts I need. I will keep them for backup if no one does want them tho.

    I picked up a 1996 Kawasaki kx250 today. It runs pretty good but the clutch pulls an slips real bad. It will need front an rear tires, wheel bearings, I'll do a top end, and I'll fix and replace the following Plastics Graphics Wheels Bars Leavers Grips Any cables that need replaced Air filter Piston Wheel bearings Tires Clutch Possibly the stock silencer(has fmf fatty header) Brake pads Anything else that shows signs of wear an tear.
