Great!

Hello everyone!

The turnout at Yamaha Center this weekend was great, it was absolutely packed with people!

There’s also another build update for the blue AS2C, you can find it here.

Until next time!

Just building

It’s all going smoothly, the newest additions are the rear dampers, electrical system and the turn signals. The turn signals on the scramblers are somewhat matte polished aluminium as opposed to the chromed ones on the regular models. The front fender is also in place, so far the only part that isn’t new are the springs on the rear dampers, Smethurst has done an awesome job re-chroming them!

Easter

Hello everyone!

During the easter holiday we’ve gotten a lot of things done here at Yamaparts, we have a massive build update for the blue AS2C and a lot of works has gone into the soon to be museum, hopefully it’ll be ready some time this summer!

But the most exciting news is without a doubt the event taking place over at Yamaha Center next weekend from friday to sunday. They”ll have tons of special offers, you can test drive the new bikes of 2008 and above that: we”ll be there to talk about vintage bikes and you can see our restored bikes in person! So if you have the chance, it”s well worth the drive!

Until next time!

Massive

This has to be the biggest single build update yet, work on the bike has progressed a great deal during the easter holiday and it”s starting to come together. So far all the parts are NOS :)

A quick word of warning: when you’re assembling the cogs for the speedometer, make sure that it can rotate before tightening the screws. If it gets jammed, it’s hell to fix!

A quick one

Hello everyone!

Tonight is mostly a quick update, we’ve got a new project update for the yellow AS3 where you can see how to remove the carburettors and pistons.

And some exciting news: a new bike will be joining the collection soon, Beezeees are almost done restoring a Honda 750 for us and have sent us some pictures of the bike as it’s being restored. We also got another email from our friend Martin in Germany with more of his restorations! You can see the pictures of the Honda 750 and Martins bikes in the news gallery below.

Until next time!
