1979 Yamaha YZ250 tight and race-ready for the AHRMA and other vintage racing events.
At the time video was made, bike is for sale and listed on eBay.
A second video showing the bike being started and ridden is forthcoming. A big thunderstorm ruined my immediate plans!
81 YZ 465 first ride
This is the very first ride after resto, nothing impressive, just working
the bugs out. Still needs some work, clutch arm popped out of the case, it
is worn in the retaining slot area. Jetting may be off, not going to bother
with it until the "break-in gas" is gone. Running 30:1 right now and seems
a bit lean, but might be fine once I run a normal 40:1 ratio. Hopefully the
next video is a real ride, before snow hits the ground.

1979 Yamaha YZ100F - Start Up
This is a 1979 Yamaha YZ100F I bought recently for parts for a restoration
project. Well, it sparked, so I fitted a spare barrel and piston kit, and
it started right up! Despite the revving here, it wasn't quite as crisp as
it should be. It was fun all the same!
