Close but not yet

Hi!

At the moment we’re extremely close to completing three different projects but we’re just not quite there yet. Each project is waiting for parts and they’re all different parts! The second orange AS2J is waiting on the engine, the blue AS1C is waiting on the fuel tank and side covers while the red AS3 is waiting on the rear fender but great news: all of them should be ready in a week or two, then we’ll have a massive update in the gallery just in time for the summer!

In the meantime you can check out the progress in the projects: blue AS1C, second orange AS2J and second red AS3.

Until next time!

Exhausted

The AS1C is coming ever closer to completion, we’ve got the exhaust on there now. As soon as the fuel tank and side covers come from Bassel it’ll be done!

Retro

Hello everyone,

Today we have a couple of new updates. A while ago we recieved a new AS3, now we’ve disassembled it! It contained a few nice surprises and a lot of old oil…

You can find the update here, since we haven”t decided how we will restore it yet you can find it in the general project tab but as soon as we’ve decided we’ll move it 🙂

A fun thing about it is the handle, it’s one of those special heightened ones. It lowers the performance a lot because of the extra air resistance but it gives a special touch of the 70’s!

We have also got a big update on the blue AS1C, you can find it here.

Wired

Once again we got the AS1C up on the bench. We got the handle complete with all the wires on and attached to everything that needs to be wired.

Note that because this is a 1968 model the screws in the engine block are a bit different, you can see it on the one in from of the cylinders. Another special thing is that the generator cover is attached with only two screws.

The carburetors are on there as well and hooked up to the throttle. Something you realize more and more as you restore the bikes is how sequential everything is, before you can get the foot rest on you have to have the engine covers on first but before you can get them on there once and for all you have to attach all the wires first. At any one time there are only a few parts that you can attach or remove from the bike although I guess that new bikes are even more that way albeit more focused on groups of parts.

The day is here

Hi!

During this weeked Yamaha Center had their annual Yamaha days and we were there! A lot of people came and talked with us and took a look at some of the bikes. It”s always great to meet other restorers and motorcycle enthusiasts.

We’ve also got quite a lot done with our own bikes, we’ve got a new update on the second red AS3 and a big one on the blue AS1C!

A few weeks ago we got two new AS2Js, one of them was in worse condition than the other so we decided to harvest it for parts, you can see the entire process of disassembling it in the restoration section.

We snapped some pictures at Yamaha Center while we were there, who knows, maybe you’ll see yourself in one of them? As a bonus we got two brand new tires for the AS2J we”re restoring, straight from cold storage at Yamaha in Japan!

Until next time!
