    Got it started! Took me a while, that kick start wore me out. I think I need to clean out the carb.

    If it comes off with gas, it is not carc. The sand color of the bike looks like one of the euro colors like some of the Pinz's have been painted.

    This thing is way too fast for me..... Runs great! I got a bunch of army stuff. Elbow pads, knee pads that black plastic helmet and these goretex gaitors for your pants legs. Interesting equipment....but all worked well as makshift dirtbike gear. PS everything is for sale so PM me.

    The bikes in those first three pictures are CRF250X's or CRF450X's with oversized desert tanks. That's pretty cool. Didn't know they were riding any of the newer MX-based bikes.

    Its called a tire mousse (pronounced MOOSE) and replaced an inner tube for durability. Its a big foam donut. Common on racing off-road bikes.
