    I already posted this in the main forum, but if anyone wants to help, it would be greatly appreciated!

    (All my questions are about the '79/80 YZ80)
    1. How much horsepower (would you think) a 1979 YZ80 would have with an 85cc bore?
    2. Is it tall/big enough for a 5'8 230lbs guy?
    3. If not, where can I find stronger springs/suspension?
    4. Can I put modern grips and or bars on the little monster?
    5. Post vintage 80ccs!

    Do modern bars like Renthal 22mms fit?
