Tap

Hi,

The work on the first blue AS1 is done, we chose to keep the tank that we had before since it better matched the paint on the rest of the parts so the colour is not quite original. All the screws, wires and electrical wires have been replaces with fresh NOS ones. The difference might seem small at first glance but the whole thing feels better than it did before! We”ll make sure to get a new gallery up as soon as possible.

At the moment we’ve got a number of bikes waiting to get photographed, the plan is to snap new pictures when the museum is done. Until then we haven’t got any good placed to take pictures. It’s not just the regular Yamahas that are waiting to get photographed but also a Honda CB750 and a couple of other surprises!

We’ve also continued work on the orange AS3. Unlike the AS1 the AS3 has been out on the roads and need more work.

We received a new AS1 from Germany. It wasn’t listed properly on ebay and would only show up on ebay.de so it was hard to find. The seat is surprisingly fresh, apart from a small tear in the cover all it needs is a cleaning. The base is completely free of rust as well!

A few weeks ago we had some pictures of regalvanized parts, a lot of them were from old used fuel taps we had collected. Since then we’ve reassembling them with surprisingly good results. It’s hard to believe that they’re used. They’re fixed with new gaskets and filters, the aluminium parts has been cleaned with acid and the plate has been regalvanized.

Opposite side

Hi,

Unfortunately we haven’t made much progress in the projects as of late, we’re waiting on the engines for both bikes. Hopefully we’ll get the engine soon so we’ll be able to finish the projects.

In the meantime we’ve been sent pictures from people we”ve been in contact with from both sides of the world. During the spring we”ve been helping our friend Martin here in Sweden restore his AS1, well, it”s all done now, just in time for the season!

Coming in from the opposite side of the world, Rob from New Zealand has sent us pictures of his CB750F  from 1980 and CBX1000 from 1979, two real beauties!

In the week I’ll start the work on digitizing the guides, starting with the crossover guide, we’ll start seeing results!

CB750

Hi everyone!

Today we have big news, not only have we started a brand new restoration project we have our Honda CB750 up and running!

The Honda arrived almost a year ago however we haven’t had it started until now! As the key turned in the ignition the bike started right away. It runs beautifully and looks stunning. It’s restored by our friends over at Beezeees to better than original condition. The model is a K2 from 1974. We’ll have a brand new gallery of it before too long, Until then we have a video of it up and running over at Yamaha Center.

The project is an AS2J, as of yet we haven”t decided how we want it so for now it”ll be known simply as ”6”. You can see the latest update here.

Below are one picture from when we had the bike up and running yesterday and from last year when it arrived.

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!

A lot

Hello,

We’ve got a lot of different news today, first there’s a new build update for the red AS2C. Because all the parts are ready and waiting progress is quick. On top of that all parts for the next two projects are done too! Bassel has truly made an excellent job with the paint on these coming bikes. Next up for the bench is the blue AS3. You can see the engine blocks for the AS2C and AS3 in the pictures.

We got another letter from Mikael filled with pictures of him and his friends with their AS2Js. As some of you who’ve read the guestbook may already have figured out, we’ve got a new bike coming to the collection, a Honda CB750. It’s currently at Beezeees getting restored and they’ve sent some pictures of the progress.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the year with Yamaparts, the site has grown considerably since we launched it in march and the response has been great.

Happy New Year to all of you!

/Joacim and Ole
