    A friend just dropped off a 2008 GSX-R600 that had 1277 miles when he crashed it. It looks like just typical damage - plastics are gone, shifter is broken, mirrors, and levers bent, etc. I need to buy a fuel relay to see if it runs but it looks OK for the most part. The best part is that he sold it to me for $1.

    My squidding days are back.

    scored this from an old friend of my dads. 1981 yz125. fucking radiator is in the number plate. looking for an air filter and cage. may have to just put a pod on it.

    [​IMG]

    possibly has the original tires on it.

    theres a little bit of boot wear on the frame but not much.

    [​IMG]

    the best part was it was a 2 bike deal. when my dad went to register this one they gave him a plate but my dad not knowing the whole plate vs green sticker thing said he didnt need a plate and just got the sticker!! 1985 ty350 with practically zero time on it. which one would you ride in "clowns of the west" :) hahahahahaha:rofl
    [​IMG]
    my old man came to his senses and decided not to sell the trials bike and handed it down to me. i told him the 125 was only worth 400 so id rather just keep it because it looks good in my garage!!
