    There's a ad on Craigslist for a 99' YZ250 and is in really great shape (look wise) but the engine needs work and comes with a new piston and spare parts. I've already got 4 bikes but debating on if I want to buy this as another bike to have around.

    If it's really a 99 the motor is the same as the 2012. Meaning you will have lots of ebay / classifieds parts to choose from.

    i'd be all over that. especially if you can find the newer forks... it'd be an instant 2012.
