A friend just dropped off a 2008 GSX-R600 that had 1277 miles when he crashed it. It looks like just typical damage - plastics are gone, shifter is broken, mirrors, and levers bent, etc. I need to buy a fuel relay to see if it runs but it looks OK for the most part. The best part is that he sold it to me for $1.

My squidding days are back.

scorpion, thank you so much for posting that video. i love the artistic flair that most of the stuff on vimeo has.

and congrats, duy. i say leave the plastic off, buy a leather jacket, and turn that thing into a genuine hooligan machine! just try not to too much.

scored this from an old friend of my dads. 1981 yz125. fucking radiator is in the number plate. looking for an air filter and cage. may have to just put a pod on it.



possibly has the original tires on it.


theres a little bit of boot wear on the frame but not much.



the best part was it was a 2 bike deal. when my dad went to register this one they gave him a plate but my dad not knowing the whole plate vs green sticker thing said he didnt need a plate and just got the sticker!! 1985 ty350 with practically zero time on it. which one would you ride in "clowns of the west" :) hahahahahaha

my old man came to his senses and decided not to sell the trials bike and handed it down to me. i told him the 125 was only worth 400 so id rather just keep it because it looks good in my garage!!

yeah buddy, 4 cylinder is bad news.

borrowed my neighbors 4 cylinder truck a few times driving out to Johnson Valley and averaged similar gas mileage to my now current 8 cylinder van.

i was flooring it to keep up with traffic on slight inclines.

the 22r is a really solid motor, I don't think any of the American outfits were anywhere close to competing in terms of the 4cyl market.
