YAMAHA DT80 MX

-

Another example of how values are relative now – £500 for an unregister­ed, rotten import tiddler seems a lot. But a decent runner can be £2000. If you want a sports ’ped, the 80cc version looks the same and is more rideable. By and large they’re inexpensiv­e and easy projects, so rewarding if you’re short on experience or time. Beware though, the same bits always rot out (the swingarm is a potential nasty surprise) and they can be hard to find, so they can still be a headache to get right.
