1986 Yamaha Big Wheel 80


Recommended Posts

Just recently picked up an old big wheel. Figured this would make a pretty nice pit bike, especially after a few basics mods like un-choking the motor, lifting the suspension and bars, and lowering the gearing. The last owners already deleted the oil reservoir that mixes the gas for you, so I don’t have to do that. It’s actually pretty neat to me since it’s practically just a PW80 with bigger tires, and I first started racing on a PW80 when I was about 6 or 7. Adding pictures soon if I can figure out how do to it from my phone.B91053E7-A045-4513-93BE-194D22B895CA.jpeg.4dd7226ad853ab698afa59ff40d76d9e.jpeg

That looks like a fun project and would look so 80s/90s strapped in the bed of an MJ. 

 

that sorta makes me want to buy a small 80s bike to carry everywhere.  :laugh:
