Hey all, I am looking at an '81 Yamaha IT465. It's been sitting in a shed for around ten years. He's taken it out for the occasional spin, but other than that, it's just been collecting dust. I'm excited about this model, as it reminds me of my beloved '81 PE175, but with more juice!!! I had a look at it last week and what you see is what you get. I'm not seeing signs of blatant abuse, but a good deal of indifference is apparent. We couldn't get it to run for more than a few seconds, but he has since cleaned the carb, replaced the plug, and claims it's running "great". It seems to have plenty of compression, and I think it has potential. I'm sure a full round of the typical maintenance is going to be in order. I'll be checking for the blown out case behind the kickstarter gear (which I learned about right here!). If anyone knows of any other specific issues to look at, please let me know My concern is that the owner is wanting $950, and is dead-set against being "low balled". I have no problem giving the guy what it's worth, but I seem to be seeing better looking bikes for less $$$. So.... If you were selling this thing, what you expect to get out of it? Thanks, in advance!
