    yowza...that is very cool (to me!)

    I love having a CA-plated 2-smoker...*everyone* asks me questions about it...and even after the motor exploded after I pinched a cylinder head gasket re-installing a top end, the motor was professionally rebuilt from top-to-bottom (w' a re-plated cylinder) for ~$1,200 and I'm good for another year or two...I even snagged a spare motor for $100 off craigslist and scoured 2 extra cylinders from ebay when they were cheap. As long as I don't bend the frame, it might be the last dirt bike I ever buy LOL

    bummer on that smoker...my only gripe with a YZ is the close ratio gearbox ain't so hot on the road...a wider ratio transmission (and maybe 6 speeds?) would be more road friendly for a smoker

    saw it, very cool, but overpriced!

    $2,500 + dual sport kit accessories will add up...for reference, I've seen plated WR/YZ250's with all the lights for ~$1,600...the way I see it bike + plate = $$ for bike + $1,000...and a 90's smoker is $800-$1,000
