    Can someone please help me identify a bike that came out in the 80's that looked like a motocross (dirk bike) motorcycle? This bike had red plastics all over it and looked like a honda motorcycle. I'm searching for my son. If you know a manufacture you may also know where I can find one. Thanks for your help.

    there is a company called moto-bike that is currently building and selling bicycles that look like modern honda motocrossers. check with them if you can. i remember back then, those bikes were badged as yamaha, but i'm not sure if they were build by yamaha. i think there was a kawasaki version as well.

    How about the old huffy monoshocks, they were fun. Anyone seen one of them lately?

    The yamaha moto-bike was indeed built by yamaha. I have one (I'm the lucky original owner!) It has front and rear shocks, a sweet banana seat, and was fun to ride, though really heavy. there are sites that are specific to this bike and restoring it. the original moto-bike was only around for about 2 years, '75, '76. you could ride huge wheelies on it because the back shock would help you stay balanced for long distance. it was yellow and I believe only came in that color.

    Just about everybody made a motocross style bike.

    Starting in the mid 70's, just about every bicycle company that made kids bikes made motocross styled bikes. They then evolved into BMX bikes. I just bought a NOS full suspension CCM version and have an incomplete (but minty) front suspension only verson. The Yamahas are one of the more collectable/expensive ones.

    I was thinking about 2 bikes

    The first one is a 90's Roadmaster but it definitely doesn't look like a dirt bike

    The second one is a mid 70's Yamaha Moto-Bike, matches a bit more with your definition.

    Anyone one know where I can get front shocks for MX

    Hello,
    Can anyone help me out here?
    Looking for front shocks & seat for that type of bike that looks like a motorcycle.
    I will pay cash for these parts if available for sale.
    Help!
    They don't have to be perfect.
