So nice to see all mini bikes, they bring back fine memories. My dream bike in 93 was the new YZ80 but I couldn't afford a new bike then. Last summer I found a low hour bike at a fair price. I have cleaned it up and will have it as bedroom furniture

Important question

Some top GP riders used preprinted tecnosel backgrounds already in the 80s but as digital printing didn't exist then they were silk screen printed which is very expensive. I prefer to not use printed backgrounds but it is ... more »

I'm quite sure only 91 125/250 fits. 90 was shorter and 93 & onwards have the low pipe routing so the reservoir have high position.

Thanks for the remark but it actually is navy blue but I guess the sunlight together with my crappy phone camera makes it look too bright

Regarding the gearbox it looked stock to me so I guess it can have been changed over the years in Sweden. ... more »

Thanks for shown interest and for you offer to help with anodizing McRoss! Regarding the spigeot I want to avoid the hassle of welding, my plan is to just plug it. Since it will require just too much money to bring it back to showroom condition my philosophy

Nice build! The burn marks are from assembly, my YZ125 have had them aswell.

YZ 96-01 rear fender This one looks like it should fit. I doubt Maicos budget allowed for unique or modified YZ molds. The front fender is an exact copy of the yz.

Looks like Showa a-kit suspension, VRP swing arm (very rare).

I have also been looking for a clean yz80 and I finally found one. Now the question is if I should restore it or just clean it and leave it as it is. It hase a quite nice patina, still original tires

thanks! The clamps are Öhlins and came together with the legs.

I like your choice of build! Making factory replica is just to expensive or impossible if you should do all the details. I also choose to build my 96 as a GP privateer bike with Öhlins suspension.

Will be nice to follow the project!

It would be worse if it was the other way around but I'd say just grind the port to match the pipe. I had a similar mismatch on my 90 & 96 but maybe 1mm.
