Hey guys, just came across this site.
I located a 1983 YZ125k that is in need of restoration. The guy wants $250 and the bike is currently not running. It has all the original parts and from what I can see on the outside, nothing is damaged.
Can you guys tell me if this will be a worthwhile restoration? Are parts even around for a bike this old?
The main thing I inquired about to the local Yamaha dealer is whether or not they could rebuild the motor for me. I can do the other things but really am hesitant in tearing the engine apart.
I guess I'm just looking for opinions on how easy (or not) this will go. This was the only dirt bike I ever owned as a kid and have been thinking about doing something like this for the past 30 years!
