Anyone come across models of the Wr or Yz machines we all love so much?... I have looked around a fair bit, but have only managed to find an old white YZ, and I already have an XR400 model. Please let me know if you have a lead... Plenty of road bike models... few dirt models...

I have a 1/8" scale YZ400f. It's not a model, if you mean one that you build. It's a toy, it has fairly nice detail and was manufactured by Maisto Intl, Fontana, Ca 92336.

Yes, that is what I am talking about - a pre-built model toy... not the ones you have to put together yourself... I suppose I didn't want to call it a toy, because most of our real, full size bikes are just that to us... big toys... :)

Is your model/toy blue? where did you get it? in a shop, on eBay?

Thanks for the info,

Hey thanks Dan, they are just what I am looking for... I will order up a few and make the shipping worthwhile... then I can line them all up and run the YZ Floor Master Series... :)

I bought them from Wal-Mart. As Dan said, I do see them on Ebay from time to time. The one I have is a replica of Doug Henrys YZf.

They've got 1/6th and 1/12th models. Toys R Us carries a few of them.

I have a New Ray 1/8 YZ426... its pretty fast...
looks good.... but I had to replace the bars with Tags and a scotts damper.
I have to ride over so much crap in my office, but its good practice...
But really... the 1/6th scale toy has cables, and working suspention, only my rear works.. might be worth the 35$
and at 17" long it easier to sit on than my 8" long one. That was not suppost to sound bad... :D
p.s. I got it at Toys r us for 15- 20$ and it is # 15!
Tim's bike is parked on my computer! :D
