Beware of imitations

Hello everyone!

We’ve got a quick update tonight with a bit of a bonus. There”s a new update on the first orange AS2J, the engine is in place now and it can stand on its own.

When you bought kits with all the seals for Yamaha bikes of the time, a lot of them came from Noboru Packing Co. The guy on them does not look amused, beware of imitations!

Stable

We’ve continued working on the first of the orange AS2Js, although we haven’t come very far yet. At least the engine is on and the front wheel is temporarily there, now it can stand on it’s own.

The red one

Hello everyone!

The gallery of the second red AS1 is up and can be seen here. I’ve moved the project to the completed projects tab, it can still be seen with any of the previous links to it.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next update!

Two in one

Hello everyone!

Today we’ve had a first here at yamaparts, we’ve finished two motorcycles in one day! Both the second red AS1 and the second blue AS2J are done! We’ve got major project updates for both of them and a piece of useful advice on the AS2J project…

We’ve got galleries of both coming, keep your eyes open, we’ll have both of them ready soon.

Until then this will hopefully do:

Until next time!

At last

It’s been a while since the last update on this one…

And then all of a sudden it’s finished! All it was missing was the side cover, oil tank and the painted parts of the rear shock absorbers. A thing we’ve learned to do is to cut a little groove on top of the shock absorber as you can see in the pictures, that way you can keep the center from spinning when you’re attaching the painted covers. Just something as small as that will save you a lot of headache trying to hold the center still. Unlike the second red AS1 we didn’t forget to fix the fuel lines before rolling it off the bench.
