Over the winter I decided I wanted to build a YZ 125, so the search on craigslist began. Ended up finding an 04 yz that was completely torn apart and missing quite a bit of stuff. It only cost me $300 and I had a lot of the extra stuff that was missing. Unfortunately I don't have many pictures of when I was working on it, but I took a lot of them when I was done.

So here is what was done to it.
09 YZ 450 forks & Triple clamps
06 YZ rear shock
15+ Airbox and plastics
Pro-circuit pipe and silencer (Head pipe is a little dented)
56mm piston
Boyesen Rad Valve
Powder coated clutch cover, side case, water pump cover, front & rear caliper & carriers
Honda front master cylinder
DID Rims & powder coated stock hubs
A few miscellaneous bling parts and some graphics

I didn't go all out with everything until I was sure I liked it. After riding it a few times I got the jetting all sorted out and the suspension dialed in. As of right now, the bike runs great and turns on a dime (compared to my 450). Hopefully I'll keep updating it. looking at getting a boyesen ignition cover and powdercoat the triple clamps. And during the next rebuild I plan on putting a 6-speed transmission in it to make the jump from 2nd to 3rd a little easier.

And of coarse cant forget the pictures...

That bike definitely belongs in the Kick Ass Two Stroke thread. Very nice build.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Very nice build. I bet at $300 purchase price you came out nice on total cost!

Yea it came out fairly cheap. I had a lot of leftover parts from some 125s I had many years ago. I had under $2,000 into all of it

awesome build man!!

Just wondering, what were the names/codes of the powdercoat colors you used. I love the colors on the clutch side case and cover. The hubs are also a sick color!!

And this was the blue color I used for the hubs.

For the blue I had to use the super chrome base coat to give it an anodized look.
