How much money you got if you have 1600 you can get a very nice condition 05 yz 125 that how much I paid for mine but if you do get a yz125 get a 05 plus the frame improvement helps a ton and If you don't have a lot of money I would just save up unless you just wanna be last place every race. JMO

id like to keep it at 1k, i dont want to race i just want to learn to ride mx and have fun thats it... i really like the aluminum frame yz but i think i just might get a steel frame one to save money .

Age of the bike had nothing to do with riding ability or where a person will finish a race! I just did a fair race on a 79cr 250 and finished mid pack. And look up Jerry robins who qualified for LL on an 85 250. Just get the nicest bike you can find in your budget.

I remember that olde  79 Honda CR 250 power being quite explosive when on the pipe!

'99 - '01 YZ 250.   Comparable power to the new ones -- suspension is great -- leaves very little on the table compared to a new '12 or '13 and since the engine is very similar from 99- today, keeping a few spares or getting parts is no issue ----   SSS forks and triple clamps from a newer bike will bolt right up too, but if the suspension is built right, it doesn't need 'em
