2003 YZ 125 RETRO LOOK REBUILD

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, after finishing my 1987 YZ 125 restoration I was thinking how cool it would be to build a modern YZ 125 and make it look like my 87 model.  So here it is, I bought a 2003 YZ 125 and striped it down and rebuild it to look like the 1987 bike.  I will not use gold wheels since the modern "gold" color does not look like the stuff used in 87 and the silver wheels/hubs look fine.  I hope you like it!

MANIAC998,  I have always thought the Yellow bikes from the early 80's were Yamaha's best color combo, when I was kid I loved those bikes!  However since I restored the 87 models I kind of started to think you never see this color combo on the  newer bikes so I went that way;  I do think a Yellow bike done right would also look nice.

I agree. Flapwick did a really nice build too, on his 250. I'm going for more of a White plastic, Black frame, Red graphics theme. I'll be posting pics when it starts coming together.

Here you go, the last black frame, white plastic, red graphics YZ made, 1983 euro model.  Something for you to shoot for.
