    Talk about a bike that was abused with no maintenance. I'm surprised that with not 1 penny spent on fixing the bike they didn't try to run it on motor oil instead of 2-stroke and locked the motor up just to save a dollar.

    I used to read the "Can it be saved" part of the title curious as to the odds of success. But after a few years I'd say that if anyone can revive these machines Mustie1 can. You are like the big brother in the garage that everyone wants in their families. And you address these obstacles in a very educational and appropriate way. Thank you for taking the time to explain all this for us.

    Ahaha I remember riding an old 70cc and casing it as a kid then using JB weld to keep the oil from dripping out. As a kid you learn how to jerry rig stuff when you have no money to replace or fix things properly.

    I had this bike as a kid. It looks like a 1984 RM80. I run it without a clutch and had to mesh the gears with the engine revs. No kickstart either as the splines were worn off and it just slipped. The 1980s. Paid about £150 for it back then IIRC. Mine didn't have any oil reservoir though. These bikes can take a serious hammering. This bike is in better condition than mine was in the 80s.

    I had the same exact bike when I was a kid. It was seized when we got it and its how i learned about engines. Used a mallet and wooden block and penetrating lube and stuff and had to beat the piston loose and eventually got it running pretty good after I learned how to work on the carb. That little thing would fly. Loved the video brings back awesome memories.

      not true, 2 stroke uses the crank for the intake, oils the crank then gets pumped to the top end

    I had the very same bike and the early one as well it all ways lost bolts and nut if you didn't check after a few rides. My dad shaved the head a bit and dam it had some punch in the powerband. the oil on the ground was from the fuel mix tank, mix your own fuel less hassles with the oil leaking. the early model RM80 is worth a few dollars now- it's classed as Vintage. bought back a lot of Memories watching this video.

When those bikes came out I was riding a 2 Stroke Harley Davidson Enduro that had a stall gas tank and metal fenders on it and at the same place I rode at those light Suzuki RM generations were flying off the same jumps I could barely get any air on some days I just would watch in Awe of the guys riding them BTW my bike was not purchased for a serious Dirt bike but it was kind of more of a trail bike that reve pretty high it was fairly quick on the street too with the 175 2 Stroke

    The loose screws reminded me of when I took the tires off of my Jeep for the first time and found that the previous owner had glued cheap aluminum caps onto the lug nuts. I was really concerned when I stripped the first lug nut.
