Anybody familiar with Gas Gas bikes?

Found a 2003 Gas Gas EC200 two stroke for pretty cheap. It is in pretty good shape and runs just fine. Has some nice suspension. Ohlins rear and Marzocchi forks. I don't know anything about them and all the dealers are closed today. Does anyone know if parts are expensive and how reliable they are. I have read that some parts are interchangeable from a CR and YZ but I don't know if that is any of the expensive stuff like clutch and bottom end parts.

I believe gas gas uses honda motors. Or at least, the trials bikes I've seen do.

Yeah, I wouldn't count on too many parts being interchangeable. Particularly the imortant parts like engine/ tranny. I probably wouldn't spend much money on one of those bike ONLY for parts cost/ availability. I could be wrong but I feel that's a safe assumption.

Being that it's a 9 year old dirt bike I hope it's real cheap. That said, they're
Fairly reliable, and you're correct there's some parts interchaneability.
The Marzocchis can be a royal pain to get parts for depending on what you need.
When was the last time the top end was done?

They are a Spanish company and have been a serious player in trials for years. Very strong motors. Getting the bike set up how you like it is hit or miss form what I have seen/heard from other riders. We have a good dealer here in Austin (TJs Cycles).

Christini 2-wheel-drive bikes now use a GG 300 motor in their 2-stroke version.

I like them, but personally like having a KTM so when I go on rides and have any bike trouble, there's people everywhere with spares available.
