    was just a bike. I was no spring chicken even back then but the '83 got me back to racing after a four year hiatus. It eventually came out of the barn for my first AHRMA race in '05.

    Great video! I think you need the modifed 83 YZ125K I have in the garage. $1350.00 takes it. I have no need for it as I have a duplicate. Race Tech front and rear, complete motor rebuild with 2 rides on it. Eric Gore ported cylinder and head work, new 250 carb and DG pipe and silencer. Clean bike, completely rebuilt, and would be an upgrade from the 83 you have now! Just need it out the garage.

    You still have that '83? Though I'm not much of a racer I might just need a real race bike...

    But an upgrade to my '83? It might be mostly original but it's been known to clean up pretty good!

    Do you have any fork springs that will work in my 83 yz250 ?
    Did you sell the 83 yz 125 ?

    Ballinger, I included all the extra parts I had for my 83 YZ250 when I sold it, except a mint, no weld, freshly powder coated frame. Also have a NOS rear rubber mud guard that protects the shock and runs down the back of the air box. I forgot I had that as I bought it when I found out they are no longer available and the one I had on the bike had a very small tear.

    As far as the 83 125...yes I still have it. I bought it as I let a friend in on all the stuff I did to mine and he duplicated it,except I have a Jemco pipe and he put a DG pipe on. I could not stand to see a factory built Z-man YZ go to the general public...much less a member of the competition! Seriously, I bought it to help him out as he needed to get rid of it. I was thinking he would buy it back later in the Spring, but since then, has indicated he has no interest it doing such. So, I have no need for 2 identical bikes....$1,350.00. This bike has over $2000.00 into the rebuild and has only been ridden once, last year in Gainsville. Been sitting since. It a give away price, but basically I am not absorbing the loss. So, come get it! I'll provide the Ohio title as well. Would be nice to see someone run this bike as my AHRMA plans for this year are not much. Taking a year off with the job change and since Eddie and I hit many many far away CC events last year.

    [FONT=Comic Sans MS, Comic Sans, Sans-serif]Who started this elbows up thing anyway? I think I like the '83 so much because it's kind of like an old comfortable rocker with a throttle. Besides elbows in the lap is perfect for thumbs up transition...[/FONT]

    Well, K0...sorry, but my duplicate 83 YZ125K race bike sold this week. David Kidd racing has added a lites bike to his fleet! Now, I have to battle with him in the 125 class! Should be fun.

    Figures, now that I decided that I need it... You wouldn't happen to have a built IT 200 motor setting around that you need to part with, would you?
