    Well well, so we have another Mirage pilot that uses a rear carrier. I'm just guessing, but aren't most 250 cc bikes at least 250 lb. dry? Add another 15 lb. wet and the carrier weight and he's got close to 300 lb. tongue weight. That would trouble me. I imagine with that setup he needs to be hard on the throttle. Not to mention the pic with 2 bikes on the 800 lb. trailer. That's likely the combo killing the tranny. With gas cans he's asking the Mirage to pull WAY over GVWR. Maybe 1700 lb. with 2 passengers. Insane.

    In his state if you buy the car and he doesn't discharge the lien you are still liable, right? The repo man can come tow it away? Why would anyone buy this car? It's a nightmare all ways. He's not that smart using pics that show it overloaded.

    And, maybe some might not believe it, but it towed that golf cart just fine. However, it was not something I was going to tow far, and I knew that beforehand.

    I have Yamaha YW50 Zuma 2 stroke with almost 14,000 miles / 22,000 km on the clock and it's still on the original bore and has never had the head off. Needless to say it's definitely due! Been thinking about upgrading with a 70cc kit.

    Ah, I miss the days of all my triple Kawasakis. I had them all, a 72 500, 73 750 and 350, a 74 500. I never had a 250. My female friend did in high school and it was as fast as my 350 was. Of course, she weighed like 90 lb. to my 200 lb so there was that. i Loved the ring a ding ding sound from those engines. In hindsight they were a terrible rip-off considering how simple a 2 stroke is compared to a DOHC 4 stroke. What I miss most is my 1973 Z1 903 cc DOHC 4 stroke. For quite a while it was the fastest bike on the planet, bar none. My '73 was still faster in factory form than the 74/75/76 and IIRC the 77 went to 1000cc, which finally was faster than mine. Total cost out the door for my Z1 in 1974 was $1385.50 I got a huge discount as it was last year's model.

    It's not exactly a Mirage but it is small and compared to other vehicles in the class it might be cheap
