1981 Yamaha YZ 250 ... Might make the purist cringe but had this bike build in my mind the last few years... Had it shipped from Texas to Wisconsin getting it Superbowl Sunday in -3 degree weather. Was supposed to be a race ready bike but dont have enought typing skills to describe everything that was wrong with it... Down to frame and started over... First race in 2 weeks!Photo

Nice! Did you clear those magnesium case covers that you polished?

When in doubt gas it! It may not cure the problem but it will end the suspense!

No... Did a few in the past and just a quick buff with 0000 steel wool keeps them looking nice every once in awhile ?

I think that looks great. Reminds me a bit of the 1978 Keystone YZ Photo

Looking good. Cant wait to see it at the track but I thought you were loyal to green? See you soon.
