An all new up to date YZ 2 Stroke dirtbike within the 300-500cc range.
And also make an Enduro version of it!  :)

I want the current YZ250 engine in the current YZ250F frame. Or something similar.

I bought a 2010 YZ250, I will buy another new bike in the next 1-2 years. If things don't change it wont be another Yamaha.

I will have a perimeter frame 250 2T soon, The way things stand today my choices are.

2011 Service Honda CR250AF (1st Choice, I love the Honda chassis)
2011 Service Kawasaki KX250AF (2nd Choice, Because I'm mad at Honda)
2011 TM 250 (3rd choice, They now have a dealer in California)

All good choices Glenn. :D

The AF KX's look great.

The way things are going your choices will be the only way to get up to date bikes.
Euro or AF.

If a pair of 2" brass balls isn't working, I doubt that the 3" model will make much difference.

The Yamaha of my dreams is a 1980 YZ465.  When that came out it was a real world-shaker, and they looked damn good, too!


Is this Maico a 440 or only a 400?  Well in all the confusion, I forgot myself.
But considering this is a 1978 Magnum, the best-handling bike in the world, you have to ask yourself one question.
Do you feel lucky, punk?

There you go Jetz, there's been one on Craigslist for quite a while now.

http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/mcy/2188076458.html



Not a bad price if it's all restored like it says.  $1900
Modest beginings start with a single blow of a horn, man.

That is actually quite a price.  But I'm afraid I have to pass on the Yamaha of my dreams so I can save up for the Maico of my dreams.
