Wish I lived closer! Guess I was bored that day back in 2014 when I looked on google earth. Would love to kick the dirt until I found a souvenir. The old bikes chucked parts off constantly (still do). Imagine tripping over a half buried silencer or side ... more »

Cool stuff. Yeah, if you've ridden plenty just like it, then keep it fresh and enjoy looking at it.

I wasnt gonna say it haha. Mine started giving me the side-eye after 20 but two are hers and she still let's me keep a few in the house. You should tell her it's a Christmas ornament.

791, yeah I think so. I was a kid compared to most of the guys ripping Crow Island, in my KD125 that I wished was a KX.

Love it! Thanks for keeping the Blue Anodize to a minimum. What kills me is seeing bikes "restored" with so much extra color (blue hubs and yellow swingarms come to mind), that a good bike ends up looking like a clown. Nice work. Now go do some easy ... more »

I never raced in that era, but worked at Hudson Yamaha in '85 and '86. Used to practice with "JoeBoy" Joe Debiase. He was always so smooth. We all rode Crow Island too, along with the marshalls.

Then install a 2001 yz250 ignition complete. Bolt-on swap. If you search my posts you'll see everything I did to mine.

@KDX yeah, that's the plan. I'll keep looking for a complete bike. I had to try to save this one especially because it was missing the motor and I had a KDX175 motor on the shelf at the time. It was on CL for $100. Seller didnt know what it was and I ... more »

I had high hopes for rebuilding this one, but it need a new everything, almost. I will make sure the parts go to help save another that's in need.

RIV, What you're looking at is all that's left. I sold off a rotted pipe and a rotted broken seat. The frame is roached where the front and bottom motor mounts are, actually missing pieces that cracked off. I don't have the time or money to save it, ... more »

Sad day in the Bike Barn. I've decided that the '79 KX125 that I salvaged isn't worth building. I found myself utterly furious at the PO or POS that ruined my childhood dream bike. So, here's the question: I have a '79 KLX 250 that is awaiting a build

Two reasons: 1st, it took a bunch of research to figure out which tapers and backing plates matched up. The 250 did, but the 125 didn't in most cases. I wanted a modern ignition so I could use a HPI programmable ignition box. I haven't gotten that far ... more »

A little teaser Pic from last summer. I fit a 2001 YZ250 ignition, complete. Same taper, same Backing Plate size. I think I had to create new bolt hole (slots) though... Much more mid and top end, plus the low end is easier to handle in the New England
