    Late model parts bike and sweet running early bike make for for some pretty cool parts swapping possibilities...



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    By the looks of things; I'm betting that engine will need a complete tear down. I hope not; but a good buy never the less.

    Congratulations Joe!



    I saw that posting and would have jumped on it if I didn't already have 8 bikes and no more room. Glad to see it went to a fellow forum member.
