Yankee Hill Machine Goes Retro Dirt Bike – With Turbo

An employee of Yankee Hill Machine with a superior artistic hand and a flare for the retro dirt bike scene, used a customer’s Honda CR125 dirt bike as inspiration for this unique AR15 build. Besides the color and and decals, the builder used a Fox Air Shock for the handguard. I love it.

Here’s a custom build one of our employees did using a circa 1970’s Fox Air Shock for the handguard. The included Pic of a YHM customer’s 1977 Honda CR125 with Fox Air Shox was used for inspiration.

And while I have your attention, you should be introduced to the YHM Turbo, a new stainless steel and inconnel 5.56 rifle silencer. Yankee Hill Machine has always been known for affordable performance, especially in the realm of silencers.


 


The Turbo™ was designed to meet the increasing demand for a quiet, yet lightweight sound suppressor that won’t break the bank. As the current state of the suppressor industry grows and evolves, the demand for a high-tech, cost effective suppressor becomes more apparent.

The new Turbo™ utilizes a tubeless design made from heat treated 17-4 stainless steel along with a heat treated 718 Inconel blast baffle. The combination of these materials allows the suppressor to be full auto rated and designed for rigorous use. The overall length measures 6.5” with a 1.5625” diameter -all while weighing in at a surprising 13.5 oz. Having an average sound pressure level of 134dB on a 14.5” AR shooting 55 grain ammo, the Turbo™ is well within the hearing safe threshold of 140 dB.

Built with the same care, quality, and attention to detail that has defined the YHM® brand for generations. With an MSRP of $489 (which includes a Q.D. brake) the Turbo™ was created to supply the modern suppressor community with a full-featured suppressor at an affordable price.

    It looks like a girls competition gun

    • Vhyrus

      What do you do in a girls competition? Do you compare girls? And how are guns involved? Either way I think I’m interested.

      • Samuel Millwright

        You race them of course…

        It gets their heart pumping and makes them more… Agreeable shall we say…

        You sick sick man, thank god the other poster didn’t mention ladies slot car racing, god only knows what you’d say to THAT

        Edit to add… Well god and penthouse letters that is…

        • iksnilol

          how else can you interpret ladies’ slot car racing?

          • Samuel Millwright

            You’ll have to finger it out later?

    • Timmah_timmah

      SEXIST! OMG!
      haha

    • Timmah_timmah

      If you think red look feminine you must hate on a lot of the competition guns out there. Does red, white and blue count?

    • iksnilol

      You know what else looks girly?

      AMERICA! … no. for real, like, half the flag is red and about half the population has two X chromosomes.

  • koolhed

    Pretty neat idea, since I have that same model of Honda sitting in my barn.

  • Cyborg Fred

    Now everyone’s gonna want soupcan handguards.

  • Texas-Roll-Over

    Mr. Torgue would be so proud.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Id rather have the bike.

    • Timmah_timmah

      Fair enough. I would not kick either out of my house.

  • Evan

    I don’t get painting guns to look like dirt bikes and video games and other stuff from other hobbies that people have. I’m sure most gun enthusiasts have other interests outside of guns, why not just pursue those separately? I enjoy home brewing, but I don’t slap Blichman and Wyeast logos on my guns for the same reason I don’t slap Magpul and FN logos on my brewing gear – because it’s stupid, the two things have nothing to do with each other, and I’m a reasonable human being who is capable of compartmentalizing. Does this guy paint his dirt bike to look like an AR, too?

    • wetcorps

      STOP LIKING WHAT I DON’T LIKE

      • Evan

        So you’re telling me if some idiot showed up to the range with this foolishness and started setting up next to you you, you wouldn’t move on down or leave altogether? Hey, to each his own.

        • Timmah_timmah

          I judge people on their actions and how they carry themselves. Not the hobbies they enjoy or the things they own and use. That’s pretty shallow.
          You seem to be missing a very obvious common bond between these items. Guns and motors are both useful mechanical items. They both happen to be powered by internal combustion of some form as well. They are loud and dangerous and fun! So there IS a common bond. Unlike your weak analogy to your home brewing hobby.
          Actually, I think a beer-themed AR build could be awesome, IF done with some class and good taste. It would take more than a couple logos slapped on it. You know, creativity.

          • Evan

            Both useful mechanical items isn’t exactly a strong link. I have a toothbrush with a little battery thing that vibrates, that’s also a useful mechanical item, and I have a truck, and you don’t see me putting Oral B or Ford logos on my guns either. Foolishness like that to me demonstrates a lack of seriousness and makes me inclined to steer clear of the type of people practicing it.

            And a beer themed rifle would be the height of irresponsibility. Guns and alcohol are both awesome, but they don’t mix.

          • RocketScientist

            “And a beer themed rifle would be the height of irresponsibility. Guns and alcohol are both awesome, but they don’t mix.”

            You’ve GOT to be trolling… or are you really that, um, “special”? In case the latter, please allow me to be the one to inform you that you don’t have to be actively drunk to handle beer-themed objects. Like, you could be sober as a preacher on sunday, and still shoot a beer themed gun. Or drive a Budweiser-sponsored NASCAR at 200 mph. Or fly your Coors Silver Bullet themed stunt plane upside-down over a crowd.

          • Evan

            You really don’t see the difference between a corporate sponsorship and some idiot tricking out a rifle with a beer theme?

            Image makes a difference, it isn’t necessary to be actively drunk. Same reason beer related bumper stickers on your vehicle are a bad idea. If nothing else, it attracts negative attention.

          • iksnilol

            Considering my rifle doesn’t go out except on the range or in a self defense scenario… I might be tempted to paint it pink and mount a dildo bayonet on it now.

          • iksnilol

            BEER CAN HANDGUARD ENDING IN A BEER BOTTLE!

        • iksnilol

          Why would I do that? Are they being unsafe, IE pointing the gun at me or themselves? If not, then I really don’t see the problem.

          If you reach down and behind you, you’ll find a stick, grab it firmly and yank it right out. Might help with the Negative Nancy attitude you got.

    • Timmah_timmah

      Bah! Get off my lawn!

    That would be flair, not flare.

    • Not enough flair, it needs 37 pieces of flair.

      • Timmah_timmah

        Hahaha I thought it as well. Nice pull

        • mazkact

          Well um OK if you’re comfortable with the minimum amount.

  • This is cool! I like it when people realise that firearms can be fun and don’t have a stick up their ass that everything has to be milspecshithitthefanthenedoftheworldasweknowittacticaldoucebag.

    Lets see, CavArms lower, whom evers upper is on sale, ALG handguard done up in Martini Racing colors………..

    • Timmah_timmah

      Oh man! Love Martini racing livery. That might actually work. My bro did a Goodwrench 03 Earnhardt inspired AR build that I think came out great.

  • john huscio

    The campell’s soup AR

    • Timmah_timmah

      Insulated with heat shields like CAR handguards?

  • mazkact

    As a kid in the seventies I was a big Supercross fan especially team Honda and Marty Smith. The thirteen year old me wants that AR.

  • Timmah_timmah

    The Turbo can sounds like it should sell well.
