Old 1980's Yamaha dirtbike restored
« on: July 18, 2014, 02:23:01 PM »
This man kept his childhood bike from when he was only 12 years old and lovingly restored it.

 
'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.'
