Like most kawas of that era the color schemes were left up to the watercraft department while on acid.
Other than that it's a fun bike.
I wouldn't want to ride one over 45 for very long.

Intended use would be mostly around town, with a little light trail riding out at my ranch.  Think it would be fun, and as far as bang for buck goes, it seems pretty hard to beat...
Half the fun's in the get there...

Well that just happened.  Already have a short laundry list for it, fork seals, brake light switch, etc etc.  Runs great, and the guy tossed me a couple fresh sets of tires with it. My first smoker!

I hope you realise that smoking is addictive!

Before long you will be lusting after RD Yammies and Kawa triples. There is no cure (fortunately).

Oh I've been warned, I know what I'm getting into. I hear they have a funny way of multiplying too...

I had to fix my buddy's sons DT50 and I decided to test ride it, it hauled my fat 220 lb ass right up the back yard hill like nothing. As long as I kept it between 6-10K, and man I tell you I want a smoker Dual sport bad now.

You've gone and done it now!

Strokers will get us all in the end (I hope).

That little 50cc smoker was more fun than all the 4 stroke bikes I have ridden, just because it was like a mountain bike you didn't have to pedel.

The tiddlers can be a lot of fun.  I used to race a 50cc Kreidler way back in the 70s/80s.   An absolute hoot.  Get it right and the little bugger flew.
