History
Purchased Apr 2021
I purchased Doh! as a way to take my 88 year old dad out hunting and to do some light trail riding. Because of the remote difficult terrain where we hunt the old girl has to be very reliable because I don't want to have to carry him out piggyback along with a couple of rifles. That's why I'm putting so much effort into a full mechanical restoration. She runs quite well and compression is good so I believe after all the new parts and work Doh! will be a great machine.

I do all of my own maintenance and fabrication.
