Member Info: I am the original owner. I put a 500.00 down payment in nov.77 for the 78''. The dealer told me that all dealer''s were only getting 3 bikes from the 1st ship load in dec. of 77''. And my bike would come from the 2nd ship load and should be here by march of 78''.(Bummer) But if any one of the 1st guy''s could not come up with the money I would be 1st on the list to call. One week before christmas I got the call, if I still wanted it, it was mine! 3 day''s later it was in our garage! I was 15yrs old and had the hottest factory race ready bike in my parent''s garage! I took it to Saddleback Race Park south of LOS ANGELES CA. to brake it in. It was so cool to have the only 1978 YZ 250 E in 1977 at the local racetrack! I rode it all over the high desert''s of California and never had a problem for 17yrs! I seized it on the 17th year. The machine shop had to go 60 over on the piston. I rode it 2 times after that and then time flew by and it''s 2010 and I want to start desert riding again. So I dusted off the YZ put gas in the tank and kick it over after 15yrs of sitting in my garage and it fired right up! It does need fork seal''s, a new air cleaner and tires. Then it''s off to the desert!
