The real title of this thread should be rebuilding my youth. I got my first 89 YZ250 when I was about 15 years old after moving up from a couple of older YZ125s. I had this bike for around 4 years. During that period My dad, brother and I were riding a lot and I have a lot of great memories from those years. About a year ago I was looking through Craigslist and came across the listing for this bike After looking at the bike I couldn't help myself and it followed me home. While being in pretty good shape for a 23 year old bike I have decided to do a restoration on the bike and return it to its former glory. This will be a slow process between work and life getting in the way, but I wanted to document it here. This bike is actually in better shape than my original was when I got it in 1991. Below are some pictures of the bike and its tear down. And Hopefully it will end up looking something like this.
