Can you get the original graphics for this? The bike looks too good to not have the exact graphics...Nice work.

Nice looking bike. I always like that bike. Too bad Yamaha didnt go further with it, like watercooling the motor, putting lights, etc.

WOOOOW! You just let me know next time you go riding a little further south... I could test her out for you before your ride and make sure it's safe :busted:

Looking good! Clearly you did a lot of work to get it looking so clean.

Did you paint the engine cases and clutch cover or is that uber-clean aluminum?

Either way, the engine looks really clean.

If you aren't going for full-on original looks, It seems like the 1995 YZ250 fender and front plate would look really good on that bike.

yes you can get the original graphics..........just haven't decided what i want to do yet

i used clorox cleanup on the tank...and 2000 grit sandpaper(wet dry)

yes the motor and frame was bead blasted and painted(duplicolor wheel paint on the cases(very durable)wp101 color..

engine is 40 over wiesco piston.......new crank bearings

new tires,new wheel bearings,new filter,,,new cables,new seat cover

my buddy has the same bike(with light installed)with on off switch off a IT

Bikes runs very good,when u can keep the front end down..

those 450's have a time getting by it,,,I think with some porting and some mods it will smoke them,,
