Hello all- I'm new to this forum ,but am on many other bike forums. I restored the MX for my grandson ,but he's into hockey The steering head/engine # are available upon request. I have a lot of literature/shop manuals,etc as well as spare parts for this bike. Fully photo documented resto with receipts and pics of parts assy. I stripped the frame ,primed and paintedblack. tank is yellow,fenders yellow/black stripe. Tank is missing Yamaha badges. I did do a rattle can paint on the ex. tank ,expecting abuse from the grandkids. I didn't want to do a lovely Marbles Motors paint job . Randy has done some beautiful work for me on three vintage bikes in the past. ( Marblesmotors .com) I did the following: rebuilt front forks,steering head brgs,wheel brgs,brake shoes (FR/rear),engine rebored with new piston ,rings crank brgs,painted,carb redone. I did not get into tranny,but it goes thru the gears and clutch is free. new chain,primary and rear sprocket,original seat(recovered) and proper original expansion chamber. proper front /rear fenders . NOTE; This bike has not been fired up since the engine was rebuilt. I fogged it and filled the gas tank with oil and it's been in a heated man cave ,suspended from the ceiling for six years..new tires/tubes with the nubs still on .I spoke with the mx guru in Minnesota,I believe it was, right after I got it and he verified that it was an MX. All resto info is in a bound folder. I have spare front forks (rusty,but functional) mx gas tank,trans gears,shift forks,wheels,hubs ,mx carb and assorted bits. All goes as a pkg. If you need more info or pics,I can pester my wife to send them..Please, no photo collectors,she'll get pi--ed. Also email me - firstname.lastname@example.org or call my cell 518-651-9523.. No texts or scammers please. Pick up only in northern NY. Randy says it's worth @2k give or take.
