1983 Yamaha YZ80
This showcase bike is a little different than our usual fully restored gorgeous showroom display bikes, and that’s ok! Here we have a 1983 Yamaha YZ80 super mini. This one belongs to Cole Parker of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada. Just saying his location made me cold. Anywho, we think this is worthy because this little bike is 31 years old, and looks to be a survivor! Plus as Cole adds “it is very fast”, that’s what matters, right?! Here’s what Cole says about his ’83 YZ80.
Hi everyone. I just got my second dirt bike, A 1983 Yamaha YZ80, moving up from a 1982 Honda Xl80. It is not mint, or restored, but it is very, very, very fast and puts my friends CRF100 in the dust! About 1 month ago, before I got the bike, it got new Wiseco piston and rings, so it has sweet compression. With a little work this bike will be stomping all of my friends “high performance china bikes” and other four strokes. 🙂 The only thing I need to worry about is my best friend’s 2006 Kawasaki KX100.
Thanks for sharing your 1983 Yamaha YZ80 with us Cole, stay warm and make sure you always gear up!
