Still being made and sold.

Great motor, killer handling (literally)

Beautiful and fast.

I believe this is a 69 Hustler like one I owned and maybe MG owns one just like it.

My kx100 is an 07 and they still make them. There are plenty of others as well from KTM, Yamaha, Husqvarna and others.

Quit bragging, M. G. I lusted after an X6 Hustler when I was riding my Yammie Twin Jet 100 in 1967. I would still like to have one.

Roxy - I rode a Montesa 250 factory motocross race bike in 1975 and it mostly cured my desire for ultra-high-performance 2-strokes. Brutal when it was on the pipe and nothing otherwise.

STOP PRESS!!! After 2 years of fruitless searching, I have found a tyre pump that will fit my Hustler! Seeing as genuine ones sell for $250 and more(!) I gave up on ever finding one. The short 11" length means that classic bicycle ones are too long. I was digging around in the attic today looking for some camping related stuff, when I glanced across at my wife's old mountain bike. I noticed for the first time that it had a pump. I also noticed that it was a short length. Exitedly, I took it down to the garage to measure it. 11"!!!. Oh joy! Tomorrow I'll take it along to see how it fits the bike and, if it does, then I'll spray it the correct grey colour. Good eh?

Unfortunately the pump off my wife's bike didn't look right (too fat). I was round at my mate John's moaning about it when he suggested that he may be able to help. He has a very large garage, and has the commendable habit of never throwing anything away. To my surprise, within 10 minutes he had unearthed 4 bicycle pumps. One of them was the right colour, but was too long. Upon closer inspection it became apparent that it could be shortened without too much dificulty. Half an hour later and we had an 11"" pump, in white. It fitted onto my Hustler perfectly, and it looks great! It doesn't actually work, but who cares, nobody ever used them to inflate their tyres anyway. I am a very happy bunny!

I wished that was my conclusion when I first did that as a boy.


P.S. X6 was my first bike at 15. I still look for that 6th gear while riding my Bonneville. We never forget our first.

Triumpt - If your first bike had been British, you would still be trying to shift with the brake pedal. I haven't actually done that, but occasionally I will "downshift" up.

I only had the X6 for a summer before I had a license and I rode it to the ground. I've been shifting on the right since the 70's so I'm pretty well hardwired that way permanantly.

However, I had a Harley in the 80's for about 4 years while riding the Bonneville and had some very close calls mixing up the controls.

If I ever do get a "modern" bike (I like the V-Stone), I think I'm in for some wild times for the first year or so. If I can get past a summer I think Ill be okay.
