    Early 80's YZ80's

    Hey guys,

    I have a weird affinity towards the 80CC YZ machines between 1980 - 1985 and would love to see any still alive (or not) around NZ. I have a couple myself and am always looking to expand if anyone wants to sell also

    It also seems that the YZ80 was the most common model of 80cc back from that era and would like any input or stories from you guys.

    Certainly in the 90s we repurposed internal rotor YZ80 ignitions on many bucket racers. Generally the rest of the engines would have been shrapnel by then. Wreckers didn't keep much else as a result.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
