Yep! Did I tell you that story at one time, or did you know her well enough to tell who it was from my post?

Girl I dated for a while was just insanely messy. Went to pick her up for a first date and literally could not sit on her couch or chairs while she finished getting ready to go out; just too piled with all kinds of crap. She would get things out of dresser ... more »

Fantastic looking bike, sandman! Super attention to detail and some perfect mods to make it look not only race-ready, but ready to kick some butt. Sorry if already discussed, but what are you going to do with it now?

Started new thread '80 RM125 Winter Resto 12/11/2017 9:31 PM

Day one of my 1980 RM125 restoration project. The tear down was super smooth until I got to the swingarm bolt. It turns easily, but won't budge otherwise. Soaking it overnight with what I already had in the garage (PB Blaster) as a first attempt to free

Raced an '82 CR250 that I had dialed in for over a year; it felt like an extension of me. I knew exactly what that bike was going to do over every bump/jump. It was stolen from the back of a van while travelling to a series race. Not wanting to lose ... more »

Welp, I definitely have a T model (beefier chain guide, swingarm buffer, rear br. cable etc.), so I guess it's an 80' after all! Previous owner listed it as a 79 and the parts houses show parts for both N and T during both years, but that was all misleading. ... more »

Honestly, I'm still a little confused about this. My frame nbr is RM125 107914, Engine nbr RM125 108261. On two different Suzuki identification charts I've seen, that makes it a "T" model. So does that automatically make it a 1980? Or did it come out ... more »

Just picked up a 79 as well; 125T model. Perhaps we can communicate and share info during our builds this winter. My goal is to restore it as a racer in time for Diamond Don's in April. Jealous that yours came with tank and seat; haha. Only thing I've

In very general terms, the water has receded enough in/around Houston to allow most to begin the very long task of rebuilding their flooded homes. That being said, many don't have much of a home to come back to, and those that lost everything are still ... more »

My sister lives in Winnie, which is the same exit Newmann takes to head toward his beach house (the whitecap picture above). She's a nurse in Beaumont, and has been stuck at the hospital since Sunday. There is just no way to get home, so they keep her ... more »

Home and bikes all dry, but the neighborhood has the worst flooding I've seen in the 15 years we've lived here - halfway between Galveston and Houston. My son and I were getting some good exercise riding bicycles in 2+ feet of water when we spotted this

The "extras" that came with the bike. Thanks again to Gary near Austin, TX.

Added reply in a thread My first "Look what followed me home" thread 8/16/2017 7:10 PM

Very nice bike, but If I go in either direction, it will likely be for a 125. Rode a 78 YZ400 back in the day, but started out trying to ride it like a 125, which in retrospect....almost ended me. The most vivid memory was trying to blast out of a berm ... more »

79' YZ250 - looks to have been rebuilt well but then became a garage queen. Not any more...gonna take a little time to make sure it's good to go and make it my regular rider/racer. Rebuild included crank bearings/seals/top end with handwritten notes

+1 on the Evapo-rust; that stuff really works and can be found at Wal-Mart and/or Home Depot. I have a home-made tumbler using walnut shells, but the results are less than I expected. A little "harder" media might work better. Evapo-rust, a high speed ... more »

By the way, the gorgeous frame, engine, hubs, swingarm on the YZ was done by none other than the maestro Newmann himself!
