Looking great though I think it will look ten times better once its been dropped closer to mother earth :)
If you like trumpies have a look around at xs 650 Yamaha's (check out google images there is some kool after market stuff out there Click me)... dont bother with gumtree/ebay as they have a cult following nowa days and are getting silly money..There are cheap ones though, you just need to keep an ear out..a rusty non runner but 100% all there one went for 500$ locally the other week....

Well i got another bike, thought i may as well put some photos up. I wanted something
of a bigger capacity and size but just couldnt let this little gem go.

Yamaha sr250.





Got pulled over on it this morning by a cop on a bike. Apparently going 72 in a 50
zone. Long story short i didnt get charged. Been going down that road at 60mh for thirty years.
woops.. When i'm getting used to the bike and looking out for "murderers" (other road users)
i'm not usually looking down at the speedo. Anyway, all good.

Where i live you need to basically expect that no-one on the road knows how to drive.

So this bike in need of a better seat,general tidy up then go from there. Unless i get
carried away with it i dont know if i'll do a build thread.

Cheers.

Who knows mate, someone might want to buy the bikes you do up.

Yammies make good cafe racer bikes.

This one looks in really good condition too. Just needs a bit of TLC & a disc brake conversion.

A new bike shop opened in the Industrial Area of Port. He builds bikes & sells Royal Enfields & cafe racer bikes.

I thought you might be interested in this Yamaha cafe racer.

I reckon there should be a bike section too. Ive recently joined a bike forum
for my two wheeled shenanigans.


Here's some pics of whats been going on.

The sr250 got painted.


And a scooter got painted.



My bike (DR350) is sitting under a sheet waiting for me to run a carby jet kit
through it and swap the rear swingarm and lower it. And put a smaller cog
on the back.

Too many projects. haha.

That cafe racer above looks different. Theres a custom shop near me that has all
sorts of things in there,i'm going to show them scooter and have a chat when it's
done. They might want it. who knows.

Cheers.

Haha, I'm quite happy wearing my front tires thankyou.

I did a wheelie accidentally and nearly went through a shop window
leaving a mates workshop. Forgot if you open the throttle it tries to backflip.lol

Gotta be careful, i cant afford to come off the bike. haha.

Good score on them parts,was that on the forum or gumtree? sometimes you get lucky.
I scored a yamaha 950 vtwin complete exhaust,windshield and muffler for free the other week.
the stuff looks new.

I need to stay away from gumtree. Get into trouble looking on there.
