how much are you going to have to invest to get it ridable? If I was going to invest $1000 or more, then I would buy a more recent bike. You've seen the bike. If you are just looking for something to tinker on, the do it. It's $75, check it out good before spending a bunch of money. Then take it to the junkyard if it's more than you want to get into.

Nay sez I.

If you have to ask then you don't have the experience to fix it.

It was one of the worst bikes Yamaha ever made ...........and I am a huge Yamaha fan.

Radiators were on the forks (guess what happens to the suspension's action once the motor warms up), drum brakes, a horrible airbox design.....etc, etc, etc.

It would be a bottomless money pit!
