    It’s so awesome to see some of the bikes Ives owned, still own, and dreamed of as a little kid. That was a treat! Thanks for a pick me up!

    I'd like to know the back story on this. How does someone accumulate all these bikes which appear to be brand new. Badass.

    So he’s basically a collector-ATC dealership
    Great way to surround yourself with seriously cool shit...it’s inventory.

    Lots of memories in that vid ! What a great collection.

    I’d love to see more of this one - I think I might have built that??

    It’s set up for flat track - we built a bunch of those in the early - mid 80s

    EDIT - now that I see this on my computer and not my phone - this is not one of the ones we built.

    My dad had that tecate. I was 15. I remember that fucker would kick back on the wrong compression stroke and slam your shin.
    It was mild until about half throttle. One it hit the notorious kawi high power stroke holy shit.

    I remember Dirt Wheels years ago and reading the article when they did the shoot out between the Honda 250R, the Kawasaki Tecate, the Yamaha Tri-Z250... :p

    As kids my younger brother and I had to share an old ATC 110.... it had that vent built into the gas cap you could open or close. When it was his turn to ride I'd close it and never failed he wouldn't make it very far and it'd die on him, LMAO! :D

    Later I bought a 200X that someone had rigged out for flat track racing I guess. Extended axle, little low pro tires on back. Rode it for awhile then bought a Honda TRX250R. Ran it's ass off but looked like shit so ended up stripping it down and repainting it, new different color plastics, etc. I wish I still had it. Brother got ahold of a Tecate 4, only one I'd ever seen. Was funny, the area everyone used to ride was mostly sand and while it was fun, it kinda sucked trying to run around in the deep loose sand. Sooo ordered a set of Skat Trak paddles from out of Dirt Wheels on some polished Douglas wheels. :) Night and day difference in the sand, my buddies were so jealous, lol. Nearly everyone else we rode with ended up with a set shortly after that.

    Man we used to have some fun with those things.
