I'm surprised a 60's Yamaha trail 80 tops that list. My first bike was something like a 1968 Yamaha trail 80, it certainly seemed to outpower my buddy's Honda Trail 90, maybe because it was a 2 stroke? Maybe his wasn't running right because he had to jump off on a few steep hills. Maybe his was one of the really early ones without the low range, or even a 55. I also currently have a tired 1963 Honda Trail 55 that won't climb my yard, but I only have the high speed sprocket, and my butt is 3 times heavier than it was in 1978. None of these bikes seem like they would get anything near 100 mpg, but maybe.
