As if I needed another project...
« on: August 17, 2016, 08:40:06 PM »
Being down to only three motorcycles was starting to bum me out. I was itching for another dirt bike of some type so I went to a swap meet on Saturday put on by the "Oily Pipes Gang"
http://oilypipes.com/event_08_13_16.html

I found a 1974 Yamaha TY 250 Trials bike that looked like it needed some lovin'





I saw some rust in the in line filter so I decided to pull the tank and give it a good cleaning.
Apparently these things can run on anything!






Emulsification tube from the carb





To be continued...

I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

Kinda late on the read - but I got an idea to help your boredom and depleted toy stock...........why dont you find a basket case sled and rebuild it?   All that fun and posting and then you can ride it.   Just dont go full blown AJ and get a kidney buster antique - get something you dont have to groan when you get off of it and will actually handle a trail at more then constipation speeds
