Found a it 1980 Yamaha It 125 on the net for sale, are these bikes 2-stroke or 4-stroke? I'm at school right now and want something to f#$% around with during the year till I get home. Would this be a good beginner bike? Worth the $250 (no seat or CDI, but basically complete other than that) I have a '84 KTM 125 MX waitin for me at home, will I be able to tell a difference.
Thanks. I never bif on it. I got my KTM for free responding to an add from a dude I never met before and I got it running and riding for $100 bucks.. (cylinder and piston) so sometimes cheap doesn't mean ****ty
The only thing wrong with it was a bad cylinder head. Got a good used one off of E-Bay for $45, and a new piston set off of E-bay for $50. Took awhile to find the cylinder but a new cylinder woulda cost like $600 or something outrageous like that (according to dealer) Also got a entirely separate motor off of E-bay that runs for $130. E-Bay is great stuff.
