Smile Tires First....Then Badges and Bits

The badges will be in place for the VYR (Vintage Yamaha Rally)!

There is one major project remaining..... TIRES! Although the current rubber "LOOKS" good, these tires are far beyond the recommended 7 year life limit. Additionally, they are mis-matched which is just as bad if not worse than too darn old. I can't trust these with my life!

Once the tires are replaced I can do more than drive around the neighborhood and finish up all the tidbits including brand new tank badges at $50 each. I had to install the decals before I started putting gas in the newly refinished tank...... Contamination of the paint with fuel made it important these were on and cured before gas was introduced.

This was definitely not a low-budget restoration: Powder Coated Frame, Brake Lines, Rings, Complete Gasket Set, Reproduction Seat Cover, ALL new cables, Complete refurbish of the carbs, New internal Starter Clutch, External Oil Cooler, Re-Paint, Decal Kit, Tank Liner System, Wheel Bearings and Seals, Various missing bits & pieces replaced........

Several parts came from Europe as these bikes were available there for 5 years vs. the 1 year offering in the U.S.A.
