    I’m doing a slight restoration, or major cleanup, rather, on an old street bike.

    Good afternoon! I have a Yamaha MX 175 1979 that I am restoring. It has very low compression and I need a new piston. I was wondering what piston I would need to buy for this bike.

    I recently bought a 1982 Honda Sabre for a $100 as you can imagine for $100 its rough. The engine works, just needed a new rectifier. The bike would probably need torn down and put back together and repainted and some body parts replaced ie horn splitter, battery box, etc. What would this bike...
