My new vintage bike

86 it 200, got lucky and found a original bike with 1/2 tread tires,only problem it set outside,with some love and some new plastic parts and covers and more this is the end result,ready for my first vintage race next month.




Beautiful bike man!

Looks like you found a nice one there!... I love these it 200s; so light and flickable through the tightest of trails. Only one problem, the 86' had a disc set up on the front with the gold DID wheels. Looks like someone either did a swap-a-roo on the front end or you have a 85 or older. Either way great find and cleaned up sweet!

Its a 86, had to covert to drum for vintage racing. Drum brakes must have been early versions of anti skid brakes. Front wheels is from a 83 yz 490.

Ok very cool, I was a wondering if someone just put gold hoops on an older one or what. Makes perfect sense though. The gold wheels definitely makes them look trick.

Had it at our last enduro and it got tons of attention.

I had IT400, Was a real stump puller. Heavy as @#$%! Was not much for the jumping up but the coming down was very cushy.

That is one sweet vintage IT. I wish I could find one of those. Been working on my '83 IT490K, but it is slow going finding the little bits and pieces.

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
