kx85 + kx80 big wheel????

ok guys I've searched & not exactly sure what to do here,tryin to get somethin for my g/f so she can ride with me, I have a 93' KX80 big wheel bike that I bought for her in pieces, it needs the top end rebuilt, (supposed to have a newer bottom end & has a hot rods crank in it) & needs exhaust, & lots of odds & ends pieces, but I'm looking at a 01' kx85 thinkin I can buy the 85 for less $ than what it's gna cost to finish the 80, but I was wondering if I should keep the big wheel for parts in case the 85 is a little small for her, will the big wheel swingarm & wheels fit the 85??? I'm thinkin the 80 swingarm should be the same length as the later 100's right??? also I'm at about $700 into the 80 so far in buying a new carb, some plastics, engine mounts, air filter/cage, wheel bearings, brakes, kickstarter, shifter, & some other odds & ends, but it's lookin like I'll have as much $ in parts & finishing the 80 as what I can pick up this used 85 for, what do you guys think is the best route to take???? thanks alot, Dusty

      Alright, found three bikes all located where i live in Texas. I know they're all very different, but if you could tell me what you think each bike is worth, and which one would be the best deal. Thanks.
      Notes: Both 2 strokes have new top ends. I think the front brake lever is broken on the kawasaki.
      KX250 2002 $800-$1000?

      YZ125 2000 $1250

      KTM 400SX 2002 $1200

      So I'm at a bit of a cross roads, I currently own a 06 rm250 and I love it. I also have a 02 kx250 which I'm selling with intent to buy a newer two stroke. I can't afford a newer ktm and the older ones aren't that great and kawasaki never impressed me. so I'm stuck between 06 yz250 and 05 cr250. I've heard the yz and rm after 06 are almost the same bike just the Suzuki handles better and the Yamaha has better suspension. So I'm not sure if I wanna buy carbon copy of my bike with slight differences. That's why I'm interested in a cr250 I heard the 02+ models RC valves are shit garbage but was mostly fixed in the 05-07 models. I ride at a track and at some bogs down the road from me. So from people who have owned both, what would you recommend. I know the cr is known for a hard hitting power band which I enjoy since im an aggressive rider. Should i just see which deal comes my way first.
