Nice vintage 42 year old MX bike, brought back to life very nicely after sitting for many years with matching Engine & Frame Numbers - 1G8-005058.
Bike was gone through from the bare frame up. Frame is in very nice shape with no repairs, added welds, etc. It was media blasted and painted with two stage automotive paint. Tank was also in very nice shape prior to being professionally painted; no dents, repairs, etc. Decals were cleared over for longevity.
Engine has a fresh bore job with new OEM Yamaha 1.0mm over piston and rings, new crank seals. All other seals and gaskets are new as well.
Bike starts easily, all gears and clutch work as they should. The engine has only test time on it, so it should be ridden gently at first to help break in the new top end. Bike was missing the factory air box when I got it. As I did not want to just put a sock on it, I shaved down a 1976 YZ 400 air box to fit. It works well with the factory air filters. The KYB forks are in nice shape, they received new seals as well as new fork boots oil and canister decals. Forks and canisters hold air just fine. The forks have springs in them. As they fit perfectly and look like they were made for the forks we suspect they are factory installed, and so we left them in. They can be removed easily if desired.
Has new polyurethane mono shock cushions, nice rear factory OEM sprocket, the rims are in nice shape with no cracks, dents or flat spots. Many new parts went into this bike: paint, deals, seat cover, seat foam, air filters, vintage bars, OEM clutch cable and petcock rebuild kit. Kick start lever pawl, fork seals, oil, boots, engine seals and gaskets. New intake rubber manifold, Yamaha piston and rings, bore job. Front & rear tires and tubes are new as are the front sprockets, chain, fenders and side plates. Grips are new as well. I am certain there are other new parts in this bike that I just forgot about!
Frame and engine numbers match 1G8-005058.
