    Oh, I SIT corrected. That is one Schweet mount. Not stock--better. Let me know how that goes down. When I am rich I will add one of those to my 465.

    wellllll....

    I could have had it for Buy it now of $1550. or anyone else. but once reserve met it ended up going for $1757.

    I never saw a sniper in action. it was sitting at $1525 with less than 5 seconds and all of a sudden boom. $1757.

    I even jumped back in at $1500.

    We had an 85 IT 200 from 1990 to about last year. Fun bike. The 490 has to be a beast. I know a guy that's got one he doesn't ride. hmmmm

    Anyways another place for you guys to look, the 86 IT 200 had disks that (according to a dirt rider article) were "10 years ahead of their time". So, now they're only 12 years behind the times. :evil

    I miss my IT 200. Was my all time favorite bike. Fast and flickable on the singletrack and very easy to work on.

    I know it's not a 465 or 490, but I do have a 1980 IT 125. These were pretty rare, only had them here in the states for 2 years ('80/'81). Kind of a 3/4 sized bike. Basically based off the YZ100 with an older style YZ125 motor with different tuning. Lugs like a trials bike and weighs about as much. A very easy bike to ride too.

    Nice bike! I'm used to seeing the 465 in white. This one looks similar to a 490.

    Thanks for digging up this great thread!:D
