I'm sure it can be tig'd or mig'd, but will it be worth the effort.
Not so much the initial expense of the welding repair, but possible problems that may be on the horizon from a bike that age.
Is it going to be a beginner/starter bike, race bike, or just a play bike?

Hi thanks for the reply. I have a yz426 that I usually ride,, was just a bike everyone can ride , learn on.. while away. The rest off the bike is in preety good condition. Everything is there. Bottom end looks n feels preety fresh. Been garaged for the last 10 years..If I can repair the head I think it'll be worth it as for a new piston on ebay was about 100 for the wiseco. I'll offer him 200 250.. Probly be bout 450 in total. What's your oppionion... Was either that or a thumpster.. And it say bring on the 2stroke... On the pipe
I also have a 83 rm80 first water cooled big wheel... Need a stator n rotor for that.. Was a reliable bike when was goin.. No power valve.. Loved the felling of band... Nothing beats the sound and the smell..
300 aussie dollars
I think it would make a great play bike.
Maybe offer 200 and end up at 250.
This way when you're done, it's paid for.
And if they trash the bike, you're not out that much. lol
One more thing; maybe check and see what a new or used cylinder costs, so you'll have something to base the cylinder repair against.
That bikes probably worth 500 if that so see how much a cylinder is and tell him that you need to replace that so then you'll get a better deal
I also have a 83 mdl rm80 that needs a stator, rotor,airbox, carby so I might use the parts on that one till I get the 88mdl ready to go. Does anyone no if these parts will fit the 83 mdl
