1997 DK General Lee

1997 DK General Lee

Dirt jumper

When the General Lee first came out I was 13 years old. I saved for months to buy one, and finally did. I got a car and sold all my bikes and regretted it ever since. I bought this General Lee off someone who got it from Herbert Hill the AA pro racer from the late 90's. It is one of the originals that was made in the U.S. Hopefully one day I will be able to restore it to glory.
 
*I was going to changed my year model based on talking to some other members. DK said it was a 1997 but other people are saying 1995. I found this website that confirms what DK says.

Re: 1997 DK General Lee

I could be wrong but isn't his a '95? I have one and was certain that it was a '95. Thats the first year they made these right? :|

Re: 1997 DK General Lee

Nope, I checked with DK because I couldn't remember what year they came out and Dk says that 97 and early 98 were the first ones. I have tried spreading that to other people on the site but haven't gotten much feedback. But it makes since because this was the last bike I bought before I quit ridin for a couple of years and I was in 8th grade when I quit and the school year was 1997-1998.

Re: 1997 DK General Lee

Sure do look nice with the "real" redneck stem, like you got there, I had the same one on my 99 for a while.
