    Don't forget Vintage Iron. That front brake needs a cable. After a new cable and some set-up time my '80 YZ465 w/drum brake will stand on the front wheel with 2 fingers. For 2 laps. :D

    How can you tell that it has a flywheel weight on it??? The owner (second one) said it didn't....that would be a great score if it did...

    edit: are you talking about the spacer on the right case...?
