A Yamaha Dirtbike from the 80s Undergoes Awesome Restoration (67 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Hobby   18 Jul 2014   / 7173 views

This man kept his childhood bike from when he was only 12 years old and lovingly restored it. You should see it now.

 

This was taken a few minutes before the tear down process.
The front fender has been missing, I found a used one on ebay for $25
After the quick hose down at home, I realized I needed high pressure to get the 30 years of grime off of the frame.
After I already had been cleaning the engine for 10 minutes, I stopped to take a picture.
Replaced the rear shocks with some Chinese knockoffs. Can't complain at all for $83 a pair shipped. They raised the bike up an inch or 2, and it feels much stiffer than the old worn out shocks.

Disassembling, repainting, and reassembling is not a 'restoration'...

This looks nothing like the original, its not restored. Its also not from the 80's its a 70's model. Pity he did such a bad job, it could have been done awesome and been worth something.
