Seeking a BS90
« on: July 04, 2014, 11:44:04 AM »
Hi Ya'll:

I stopped by my first and oldest friend's house the other day. He and I are both 58 years old now and both of us still live within 20 miles of the small community where we first met in elementary school.

It's funny, he's still as narcissistic today as he was in the 60's. He was a spoiled little s#!t to the max. (Oh Man! I could tell you stories) But, I love him as a brother and he and I still hold dear the years we spent together.

His mother bought him a brand new little BS90 the minute he expressed an interest in something bigger than the 5 Speed Schwin Stingray bicycle he later sold to me for $5.00 after his mommy obliged. His mother is long-since gone, but he can still afford to spoil himself, but I digress.

We rode that Bridgestone around for many summers together. I remember him stripping it down and making a flat-tracker out of it. He made a track down in the sandy ground next to the Luckiamute River behind his house in Hoskins, Oregon ,and we learned how to power slide the corners together.

Eventually he got into motocross and went on to be fairly professional. He recently tracked down his first dirt bike (Maaco 400, or something like that) and restored it perfectly. It was so well done it was featured in some National magazine. I'll try to get pictures and links.

The reason I'm here is to try to find the same year and model for us to restore and briefly relive our old days.

I'm not sure of the year and model, but I'm pretty sure it was a '66' BS90 Trail (black).

Hello and welcome to the site! 

Thought I'd toss this your way, it's the only 90 Trail still "active" on craigslist, The price isn't bad but shipping will put a bite into things. If you do decide to get it (or another one) U-Ship is one of the cheaper ways to get these things from one place to another.  Good luck in your search.....

Gotta ask because of the handle. Are you a pedal steel guitar player?

Inaresting (quote Neil Young). I've been playing guitar since I was 13, mostly rock, but also lots of "country rock" (which is my preference) for which ya gotta have a pedal or lap steel in  the mix. Have friends who can make a pedal box talk, but I'm a 6 stringer...nice to have another music guy on here.
BTW, my experience is you never stop "working on playing it."
Good luck with both your projects.
