They looked trick,sounded bad ass and went fast.
The tank strap silver YZ's with the red stripe are the shit. The 125's are easy to come by. The 250's are hot items. The 360's are rare and can bring big money. We were at Unadilla when the production YZ's were unveiled, maybe for the first time. Those tiny foot pegs. Everything about those YZ's were trick and
at the time. Great story about how Don Jones developed it all, even the story about the tank strap is cool. Cool bikes.
