Thanks for the best wrightup ever about the best Christmas gift I ever got and will ever get, my 1966 Sears 106 motorcycle. It started a love for two wheel adventure that has never gone away all these years later. Thx Kevin in Cincinnati


I have a Sears Gilera I purchased last year. It is really fun to ride around town, though it has garnered the nickname “one way” because it will get me anywhere I want to go, but will only rarely get me home.
