New life for old bike


Blaine Place, right front, shows off his newly acquired Yamaha YZ 250x dirt bike he got in trade for an “old beater Jeep.” His friends, all Central Maine Community College automotive technology students in Auburn, determined that the bike needed to be re-timed, and required new sprockets and a chain. Josh Axtman is standing in the truck. Derek Barrows and Tyler Larochelle stand beside Place.
