2 years of reliable and efficient service, and Handy Helix has a new owner.
Hate to see such a fine machine go, but replacing it with a newer, lower mileage Helix.
First possible name choice is "Buzbee Helix" (welcoming suggestions)

If you name it that you'll have to add some black stripes.

Yes, thank you Ultraliner.
First bike, 1990 NS50F. A must-have for the odd, elderly types with a need for speed.
The second, green bike is a '70-'71 SL100. Pure nostalgia. Beater without a heater.

I haven't spent alot of time scootering or tinkering recently. Right in the middle of winter and too ball freezingly cold at the moment to be indulging in much garage time.

I thought i'd share my most recent 2 wheeled acquisition... At least it's a Honda, so it kinda belongs in here somewhere ;)

Yes indeed.
One owner, now 89, parked it, gave it to his grandson, who kept it sitting around the last 5 years.
Garaged all it's life, used for going to the end of the drive to collect mail.
Not giving any number, but if I told you what I gave, you'd punch me in the face.
Me second Jog ever...the first was a '96 Next Zone.
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=34143
I am very curious about the name, "Artistic Spec."
Both Jogs run 40mph...maybe generous, but saw the speedo hit 40 today on the '93,
and remember pegging it on the '96.
