Thats probably the record for the cheapset ridable bike on the site, and it doesn't look too bad either :)

Good find for $20! I got a circa '92 Shogun Prairie Breaker from the tip shop for a bit less but it was far from rideable and rust proved its undoing. Still, sold the DX stuff off it for enough to buy a slab of beer with the profits, haha.

Looks almost identical, bar the decals, to the Dodsun I had briefly so '95 sounds about right.

After a bit more tinkering, have sort of finished this retro rebuild. All up cost me $40 Aus for the bike and forks. Still have not found out anything about the history of the brand.....
