This Wednesday I'll be embarking on a nice 5 hour round-trip drive into the back woods of Kentucky to pick up this nice little neglected A1 for $12.




Just curious how far have some of you nuts have driven to pick up a PB and if you had an interesting traveling stories to tell.

True, but the way I see it is:
I already have a A1 in decent shape needing a rear wheel (sprocket, axel, brake, and everything) which I can get for $30 off of eBay. It needs a muffler which is another $30-$40, chain $10, pull-start $15, and an ignition coil $15. Around $100 in parts to get it running. So in the end, at the very least, I'll be up $40 plus I'll have a 2nd PB to ride and enjoy. Oh, and I love road trips. :D

Nice grab for $12 bucks......Once you tally up the fuel and drinks youll be into it for a bit more........

I drove to Connecticut from Ny to pickup an X18 w/125 for $125.00.It costed be $80 bucks in fuel and that was before the major gas price hikeup.....It was supposed to be a 3 1/2 hour drive one way and I got there in under 2 hours..............My brother was white knuckled all the way there and was wishing he never agreed to go....lol

100 miles (each way!) to go buy 2 new Cateye's and 1 x1/x2 <--- It was a weird mix + match mashup bike, so I just call it an x1/x2 but it did have the SWEET FAKE C.V.T. with a CVT sticker on it, but it's just a normal gear reduction...

Thanks, CL comes through again. I got the lady's address today and turns out the trip will actually only be 2hrs each way so, borrowing my moms car, I'm thinking gas should be no more than $40. My truck on the other hand would have been like $60 or more. :/ I'm looking forward to it though, haven't been on a road trip in a long time and going through the hills of Kentucky, I should also be able to take some nice nature/rural shots with my camera as well.

These were from the last country road trip I took last year. You just don't get to see stuff like this around the city limits anymore.

Now that's a road trip!

Dang, I knew it was a trick, nice work! I'm welding up steel "blast doors" right now, and password protecting all my 3d assets (but I'll leave the password as "password" ) :)

Plus teaching my puppy Lily to "Sick Balls" <---Stand by me is an AWESOME movie!!! "You Guy's wanna see a dead body" ?? too many good quotes from that one!

One hour, one way for my X1 but it was running, complete, and had an upgraded carb for $100. With gas, I probably spent $115.

I drove 2 hours, one way, to pick up a Blata 2.5 for $60. Its' exhaust came in a bag, the body isn't bolted on and it needs a pull cord. With gas I spent $75 which was the original asking price.

Heheh I just like the name Blata 2.5, sounds like an Italian exotic or something. What kind of ride do you have if your doing 4hr trips for 15 bucks worth of gas?

That is a sweet boat! and the name is even better! What kind of power train does that sport?

I really wished I lived closer to water, like an ocean. I suppose I do have a fairly large river to play on but, bleh, it's nasty nasty. I'm almost certain it's inhabited by 300lb 3 eyed killer cat fish. :/
