I bought this bike for $200 and it was in almost junk yard condition. After 2 years of persistance and patients I ended up with a very nice machine. Everything inside and out was either replaced or restored to as new as possible. I have another original 1981 yz125 that is my rider that I’m not sure I want to restore are just leave as a survivor.

Beautiful bike, and great job on the Resto. At 19 y/o, I went running to the dealership, counted out 16 $100.00 dollar bills and some change, then off to the track. I was a bit disappointed in the power but having Yamaha's first water-cooled bike was awesome, bike was bullet proof also. Anyway, props again on a good looking bike.

Sore subject there. I had a problem with my phone and lost every picture I ever had of all my projects. I had pictures of every step from just the frame to the steering stem lathe job to fit new seals and even the split engine cases. I even had a picture of the bike when I pushed it home. It had miss matched rims, side panels from a newer YZ screwed to the side. Coolant just poured out the neck and someone bored it 40 over and put a stock size piston back in. It was a mess. Took me a month to get over losing those pictures.
