    Well I took too long and the bike (box) sold.

    I appreciate the advice. I am going to replace the fork seals on my YZ and then start looking for a running ish project. Im thinking of looking at the California market, finding a bike that doesnt pass emissions there ( emissions arent a thing in my county)

    That's a good idea. 2-strokes that need some work and are only eligible for red sticker registration in CA (seasonal) don't bring high prices.

    On the other side of that; vintage 2-strokes that can be green stickered, or better yet have grandfathered street plates, cost an arm and a leg.
