  1. Thank you so much for your help. I think I should have kept my 1986 Honda TLR200 Relex...lol.
  2. I decided on the Yamaha, but it was kind of in rough shape and I didn't think it was worth the $1,500 asking price. It is still for sale, but he is not budging on the price. Am I wrong in thinking a 1974 TY175 in running, but rough shape, is not worth $1,500? I am not going to ride competitive anyway so I thought about just getting a cheap small 110cc dirt bike to play with in my yard. What do you think?
  3. Thank you for the input. I really appreciate it.
  4. Hello, I am a 59 year old that has ridden motorcycles for years. I had a 1986 Honda TLR200 Reflex and a 1997 Gas Gas Contact 200. I would like to get into riding very easy trials type riding in the woods around my house, not competing. Used trials bikes in my area of Northern Indiana are hard to find and I would like to start tinkering around in the woods asap as this COVID-19 stay at home order is driving me nuts. There are two within 90 minutes of my home. One is a 1975 Yamaha TY175 ($1,400) and the other is a 1974 Suzuki RL250 ($1,000). Both seem to be in the same shape. My question is which one do you think would be the better bike for me? From the specs the Yamaha seems to be 21 lbs. lighter, but the Suzuki is more powerful. I sold the 1986 Honda TLR200 because it was a 4 stroke and not powerful enough. I sold the Gas Gas because I didn't want to stand up all the time. Any input would be extremely helpful. Thank you.
