Now looks and handles like a 2005 450. I've been perfect on maintainance, consistant oil and filter changes, and valves have held their spec since the one and only adjustment in 2003 (probably just the breakin adjustment). Comes with LOTS of extras

Located in Houston, Tx. Price is $2000 obo. Also open to trade ideas, looking for a TTR125LE for my girl too FYI.

Cam at www.mmracing.biz can get you started with questions also since all he does is pretty much work on minis.. 65s, 85s..

He sells rims, hubs, suspensions... etc. he'll show you exactly what you need to get one up and running.

it's not cheap! at least to build it initially... once finished the rest is not bad at all! much cheaper than a big bike that's for sure!
