Thumb Nice Find!

I had one of those in 94-97, raced prolly 25-30 D37 desert races on plus lots of trailriding, it never had any issues, only replaced the piston rings just before I sold it!! I still wish I'd kept it and plated it for dual sport riding while I could have. It's worth the $ effort to have the forks and rear shock revalved for plusher ride, enjoy the wide ratio trans and big tank, even used to be able to get 360 kits for them!! These bike rewarded aggressive riding style and had a good frame geometry for high speeds across rough terrain as well as great in the technical trails. ENJOY
