I know these big wheel bikes aren’t great in the woods and a normal dirt bike is better, but man… I want one. It’d still probably be a lot of fun.
Does anyone know anything about these mid-1980s Yamaha big wheels?
It looks like they came in 80cc / 200cc / 350cc. They’re way cooler than the modern Yamaha TW200. IMO.
And then at the bottom… Those Honda trikes look awesome and dangerous.
One of the Yamaha big wheel 200 which recently sold on eBay had the description:
This is a kick-ass bike that will go anywhere. None of your friends have one. Better that that, none of your enemies have one either! This is GLOAT-CITY doing a wheelie! I am selling it because I am getting a little older and feel safer on a four-wheeler. But I still bust it out occasionally when I want to crap out my neighbors.I could have washed it up for the photos, but then I’d be getting a lot of questions like “does it run?” or “Is it any good in the mud?” or “Can you cross a creek with it?” Yes, yes and OH, Hell yeah! This bike does it all.
Quit bein’ average and do something cool for your self. Your wife will hate it, so park it in the living room. That way when she starts yelling, you can ride it to the refrigerator and get a beer!
