Nope, that's another bike i am looking to own some day. I've owned over 55 vintage bikes and i have never had the opportunity to own a nice 74 YZ or a 68 DT1. In 1974 i had to settle for a 1971 Yamaha AT1 125 MX (true MX ) while my buddies i raced and rode with had the latest and greatest bikes like the 74 Honda CR125, 73 Hodaka 125 Wombat Combat, 100 Super Rat and so on.I remember well when my friend Kenny showed up with his new 74 125 Elsinore to the track we had in the field. It was light years ahead of anything we had ever seen! " He killed us"

Motovintage, Yes the bike is mine I just picked it up locally. It's in pretty good condition, missing a couple of parts but nothing is bent on this bike except the rear brake pedal. The tank has no dents not even a small one. I will take this one down to the frame and bring it back. I think it will be a good investment.

What a little jewel. I am way to fat for 125s, but I would love to put my son on that and watch him smoke all the big bores.[Blol] Jeff

That little motor will really take off when it gets in the powerband.

Great bike that is very collectible. Good find if you got it in Georgia. Whats the story on how you acquire the bike.

AHRMA race April 12 at Aonia Pass MX and Southeast Vintage MX will have a race April 19 at Strawberry Hill.

I got the bike in Monroe County, The guy bought it new, left home and step Dad gave the bike away.He told step Dad to get the bike back and he did. He then stored it in his basement since then. He said the bike has not been started since 1978. I ran a National event at Strawberry Hill back in the 70's and still got the gold cup from that event.

I raced form 1974 until 1983 mostly in SC, NC, AMA District 29 events. I raced Strawberry Hill lots in the 70's so there's a chance we had rode or raced together. Sandlapper was a great race track also. Best MX race track back then was Road Atlanta. Augusta had three MX race tracks back in the 70's did you ride any of them. I started back riding MX in 1996 and in the last few years have enjoyed riding in some of the vintage events in the Southeast. I have a 1973 Yamaha MX250 that I may start riding some but my main race bike is a 1982 Honda CR480. Come join us at some of the vintage events. http://www.sevintagemx.com/ and check out the AHRMA events in the Southeast.

I remember the event well, it was Super muddy and the engines would be just caked with mud just after a few practice laps. You would have to come in and get your small pit crew to clean the mud off and then go back. My partner who normally was very competive was not good in the mud and I never seen him. My dad drove up from Newnan Ga by himself to watch that race. I think that was the toughest race I ever competed in. Almost everbody was falling it was so slick and deep.[o-o] But it was fun[ok]
