---THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION---$1.00 STARTING BID---BIKE WILL SELL---Call me crazy but I am hoping this Race Ready bike at No Reserve will work out in my favor and generate a ton of interest and bids. Its a real gamble but I am going for it. This bike was in covered storage almost 20 years. I got it from the 2nd owner and built it to race VMX. The latest issue of VMX Magazine says 3rd gear starts were the norm with this bike and I was ready for some of that! But at 62 yrs. with worsening arthritisin my throttle hand and back issues I need to pass the torch. I have had a lot of VMX fun (3 Class Championships with AVDRA) so a lot of good memories. 1980 YZ465 New Top End bored to 490ccSERIOUS COMPRESSION! Just break in run time - 2 or 3 heat cycles. Rated at about 60 HP. Ready to Roost!
