Very nice. That bike takes me back to a great time in the middle of MX racing. I won a crapload of races on that bike.

That bike is dope, what are you going to do with it?

Doodman, first off you got a great deal on the KX80! My brother will be AHRMA post vintage racing this bike. If you are planning to go to Redbud, we will be running this, and me on my 78 RM400 on the big track on Friday the day before the pro race. Hope to see you there!!

Thanks wavehogg, I always look forward to your inspiring rebuilds, thank for keeping them alive. As far as the kx goes, I scored a twin to it for another $25, but it was buried in the snow so I will pick that up next week. I also scored a 81 cr 125 elsinore(last year elsinore) off my neighbor for $50.00 and he threw in a parts bike xr 200.

Single income, 3 kids, don't know how far I can take these bikes, but I will give it a shot.

I don't think I will be going to redbud, but would love to.

Thanks for the kind words and inspiring countless others to refurb these old bikes, yours are truly a work of art.

good gas for you.:thumbsup:

Now that is what I am talking about. It's a dirt bike, not a piece of furniture.

Very cool pics...

She is a Beauty! I can't wait to get mine done. Finally sold the TS250 I had last night so that should keep me going on it for a little while.....

Awesome, I'm currently looking at a 1980 YZ250, it's rough but you've inspired me to pick it up!

Thanks,

Bruce
