Update 2-22-19

Well I've decided to finish up each BW and get them running and riding before selling the balance

I keep thinking any man can clean a carb and get a dirt bike running but it seems monumental for most of the people inquiring off my CL ad

I have a few forum members I will still work with in getting them a BW350 either from my collection or elsewhere so feel free to stay in touch if you ever decide to pull the trigger on a BW350

Honestly theres a huge demand way more interest than I expected I doubt they will last long once they are turn key ready to roll

I have clear clean titles on all of these BW's

Prices range from $2200 for one of the BW200's to around $4500 on the BW350's

My interests have changed and I'm onto other projects but I'm keeping 3 BW350's for my personal stash

Based in Arizona

WoW, that is an incredible collection. Could anyone else have that many in one place at one time.
Amazing!

Amazing Fred. There are a few here on the right coast who would love to find BWs of this quality. I would make a suggestion to them, me included, to get our acts together and make Fred do another east coast run. These are all over 30 years old and I don't expect Yamaha will be making any more of these real fat bottom gals.
From my own personal experience with my BW350 I can tell you these are just as easy to work on as our TWs and the 350 has the same make carb that may or may not be just a little larger. As Fred mentions the BW350 is a heavier unit and you won't be tossing it around like a TW but it sure can give the seat of your pants a thrill you will never feel on a TW. Let the bidding begin if you really are serious. A road trip for Fred or one of us on this side could be in the future.

I have several messages I need to return but I'm on the road all day today and a good portion of this week driving in snow storms in Arizona! I'm back in Winslow AZ today delivering a TW but I'll reply to all as soon as I get a chance! Thanks!!!

I actually plan to buy a new trailer out of Indiana so that would get me half way back east already

Trucker Jamie just picked up his first TW200 and he's based back east and he wants to pick up a Big Wheel as well so we might be able to have him haul a load back for use - Picture taken in Winslow Arizona and every time I come here I look for that girl in the flatbed Ford but still haven't found her lol

Get 'em While You Can...

Oh Boy! The BW's are great. Get 'em while you can boys.

I have a BW350 and will be getting my BW200 back from my Nephew soon. The Bw200 was a lot of fun and is a great bike, but for those looking for more, the BW350 is way faster and fits a bigger rider better.

See my YouTube video of the Dog and I ripping around the yard on the BW350, in the Winter.

This is my first post on the Forum... and I just picked up my first TW200; It's snowy here in Minnesota, so I haven't ridden it much yet, but expect many a good outings on her. Now I need to pick a name for the TW200.

See Ya on the Trail,

Welcome to the forum, Ken!

I lived in Minnesota for 15 years so I know how short the riding seasons can be, but it looks like you're having fun in the snow with your Big Wheel.

It also sounds like this winter could be a record breaker!

Thanks Brian :)

The Big Wheels won't tackle the deep or loose snow, but it gets real fun when the snow is melted down and sticky. Lot's of side slides and berm making can be a real hoot.

Welcome, Ken. Fun ripping round the yard. P.S. I think you're dog want to play frisbee. :p



I grew up in Minnesota down near Rottenchester (Rochester) in a small town east of there. I moved to Idaho to get away from the snow and cold. Not sure it worked!
