How many bikes is too many? Contributor John L. Stein draws the line at 23, which meant bike number 24, a dilapidated 1981 Kawasaki AR50, needed a new home. The addition of the AR brings Ari Henning’s collection of 50cc two-stroke streetbikes to three—three too many, according to his neighbors and the California Air Resources Board. The scrawny Kawasaki will undergo a comprehensive rebuild and be painted period-correct lime green before entering service as an errand-runner and way-cool pitbike.
