Our buddy Tony Jeske has built some of the most insanely detailed builds over the years, and recently informed us that he may be selling his dearly beloved custom YZ125 “Hell Raiser” that was all over your Instagram and Facebook feeds last year. When it comes to two-strokes, this one is a pretty shining example of badass. All of the details and link to the eBay auction below, and scroll down for some videos!


All Details Needed are Below, courtesy of Jeske MX Customs:

This is a 2016 YZ 125.  Built by Tony Jeske of Jeske MX Customs, the MX Industry Leaders in Custom Built, high performance off-road machinery.  Creators of – Dirt Bikes on Another Level. 

It's name is Hell Raiser.

There is nothing ordinary about this bike.  The only one in existence, a true piece of American Motocross history, and a MOTORCYCLE that will always be remembered.  You won’t find another MX bike remotely close to what this bike is.  

The intention with Hell Raiser was just as its name states.  Raise Hell.  And we did just that.  It’s much more then a bike.  It’s a statement.  A promise.  

It cemented an already strong reputation for Jeske MX Customs and the bikes built and created. We build high end quality show bikes, then race/ride the Hell out of them.  We’ll put some of the baddest riders in the sport on them just to prove a Jeske bike is more then worthy.

So, if you don’t get the winning bid on the Hell Raiser, just know, we’d be happy to build you one.  Maybe it’s not your style…  That’s ok too.  We’re great at building dirt bikes so don’t sweat the details.  That’s where we shine.
