Default Yamaha MX 175?

Anyone ever heard of one? I hadn't until I found one in the trader for 400 bucks. Its mostly original, mostly put together, with all the parts for sale with the bike. I thought it might be a fun project (of course, haven't seen it yet, just a picture), but has anyone any more details about the bike, or any idea where I can get a manual for something like that?

Thanks ya'll

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

the Yamaha MX bikes were made in different sizes starting in the early '70's and running thru the early '80's for the most part. They are really no more than stripped Enduros and not to be confused with YZ's or as being competetion bikes. We had a '77 175 and it was a good trail bike, lot's of fun and very good power characteristics, and damn near bullet-proof. There's plenty of parts and info available, and we got our manual at a used book store. A good site to check out would be www.motorcyclememories.com
Hope this helps, Bob

My girlfriend's Dad has one. I found it sitting in the back of their house. I took it home, cleaned it up, and after about a weeks worth of work, got it to run. Good bike to trail ride. I converted the rear drum brake to disk as well. But left pretty much everything else stock, I cleaned up the cylinder and the head alot.

They LOOK like a nice little bike to have fun on. Probably heavy though...but as long as your rollin and not tippin it should rock.
