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 from the mechanic, and suspension work from NorCal including a dual rate spring for the shock. Forks/clamps upgraded to what looks like 43mm (not certain, but massive) Takasago rims/Buchannan SS spokes with new Dunlop M51's. As a bonus, it also came with the originals wheels wrapped in brand new M31's, a spare motor, original forks/clamps, boxes of misc. parts, the OEM manual, and the title! .

Wow, that's a really nice score, right down to the old snap on style crossbar pad.

Did those things come standard with a restraining order to keep away from high schools, or was that an option?

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 and ending up on my knees with the throttle GRIP still in my hand - the bike had shot out from under me and continued on for 20 yards or so.

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