    Finally... Tiger 80 pics ( 86250RZ is a witness)

    Sorry i didnt post em. I'll try 2 post em up 2morrow after school. Its a sad story though, the motor buried under ground Just the chassis. Any ways the guy who had it before Mike used to race it back in the day. He took the motor out & put it in a wooden crate to rebuild the motor. Sure enough he tore the shed down,accidently buring the crate. Several years rolled by after he concreted a slab and built another shed. Then it hit him where he put the motor. I just wanna cry. The guy said he wasnt sure if the motor was under the slab.our luck ITS BURIED under it! Well hopefully I can go 2 his house and get better pics. At 1 time he asked me 2 buy it at an Amazingly $75.00 Yes u heard correct, but now he wont sell it. he wants to put an 82 250r motor in it. Iwas gonna buy it,but i had only $49.00. Then he changed his mind when i got it. WTF

    I don't know how big the slab is but for a jewel like that It wouldn't be beyond me to take a shovel and dig a tunnel under the slab to find it.

    so did you get it or not. i am not too far away. if you can not afford it let me know i will pic it up. finding a motor would be impossible but it would be nice to own that piece of three wheelin history.
