One of my favorite bikes ever that helped me live a dream. 

In the late 90's I ran the District 36 Hare Scramble races on a shoe string budget and knew I could be competitive with a competitive machine. The machine I was eyeing then was a 97.5 200 Jack Piner.  Fast forward to 2012 and I decided to race a 2001 200 MXC in the District 36 30+ Vet Class. Most of my riding buddies considered me a bit crazy for riding an old bike like that and wanting to win a championship. However I thought it was a great tool for several reasons. 

1. They're easy to setup with so much information out there with it being a bit older.

2. It's easy to ride for long races. Many folks think they need a big 450 or something super fast to be win on. When it comes to endurance racing I found I could go faster at the end of the race on a smaller less powerful bike that weighs less. 

3. Dead engine starts they can't be beat. 

4. Parts availability are plentiful, most parts from 98-2016 fit or can be adapted. 

5. Tunability - with the wide range of parts available from the EXC, MXC, SX, XC, XCW you can truly create these bikes to adapt to you, your style and conditions. 

 

Negatives:

1. Most people find the forks not very good out of the box. All of my bikes though I have professionally setup and after having these setup they worked as well for off road as the newest stuff at the time. 

2. I did break a transmission, however I was able to replace it within days because of the parts availability. This doesn't seem to be a common problem.
