DJ here, Yes the bike is for sale and if you need to know what was done to it read this

John, that tanks looks bloody great mate. I cant wait to get into my next projects. I'll have to toss the dice to see which one I start first but I have the choice of either a YZ125A YZ250A or a YZ250H.  All favourite bike's so its going to be a hard choice.
But first I need to catch a Snapper and a Kingfish or two on mine and Karen's holiday up in Doubtless Bay at the end of the month.
Catching fish is like VMXing on Suzuki's, once your've got it all you want to do is get rid of it before it starts to sink the place up.
 ;D   ;)   ;D

Start on the 125, that saves you dropping too much into the 250A before you sell it me  ;D ;D

I am back the end of April, and 2 in the shed is just being greedy, but you are right I would probably just convert the 250A to a monoshock or something. I am just waiting for Bill to run out of cash to swoop but he always has little under the mattress for the odd KDX200 that pops up/

And that is what was under the paint and 4 kg's of bog.....home handyman shit.... argh, the dangers of the 4 inch angle grinder....even the filler neck was damaged by whatever they used to try and pry the dents out, they had cut a hole underneath aswell to put a punch up the inside for more "handywork"....guess what...doesnt work. The pictures dont show how bad the tank really was.
