I respect your decision, and your restraint ! I have wrestled with this a few times before on this same bike, so I could change my mind ! Thats a really nice YZ. Being so popular back in the day, hard to believe it survived.

No, it's not my original bike. It's an 83 but similar to my 81. I'm thinking about racing it and treating it just as I would treat new bike. At 55 yrs old I'm not gonna wear it out, right ? How about you, gonna ride it or hide it ? LOL !

Reserve was set for 5000. I haven't seen another this original. So, just like original poster I can't decide between not riding it to preserve it's originality or racing it. I was 20 years old in 1981 with a brand new 250 Maico, heading to Florida to ... more »

I have the same problem, just in a different color ! I bought this bike 10 yrs ago because it was an original survivor. It's part of my collection and I have never ridden it. I just tried to sell it on Ebay, and it did not meet my reserve price. So guess

These are the old style lugs with the bigger axle. I was thinking all the 52mm CV's were this style. Looking at a photo of Bagget's new ride on Racer X site and his forks appear to have the bigger axle.

I have a set of 52mm CVs w/clamps, axle, and spacers. Price is 3500.

No new plate and I continued racing while the hairline crack healed. My point was it takes a lot of force to bend that plate so don't worry. Probably upgrade to the new plate next time !

Added reply in a thread Broken Collarbone Question 10/24/2016 3:17 PM

Broke my collarbone July 2016. Doctor plated it and I followed his advice and waited 12 weeks before racing again. One year later I slammed my shoulder into the ground again with enough force to bend the stainless steel plate. This is what it looks
