    I'll take one of each please. At first look I thought 75 dollar profit a bike does not seem much but then I went on an inflation calculator and as of 2018 that 75 of 1970 would be 490.00 ......

    This is why I don't trust "inflation calculators". Going by this correction factor, gasoline would be $1.50/gallon, an average new car $18,000, average house $90,000, 4-year college degree $24,000, first class postage stamp $0.24...

    That's really a great bulletin release, looks totally original(y)

    I would have been ~ nine in 1970 and don't remember much economically. I did know there was no way in hell my folks were going to buy me a $320 mini bike, that much was already learned at that young age:mad:
    So what happened to the Candy Ruby Red CT70H's? or HKO?:eek: That was the popular one.:geek:

    HK0 colors: CTO, CBG, CEG. The only CRR H-model is the HK1, which was the better bike overall. Repainting an HK0 "candy resale red";) might be one of those exceptions that doesn't kill the resale value.
