Yamaha YR3 first pic

Post  rearset on Sun 1 Mar - 17:05

Still working on my F1 Honda and it is almost complete, updated pics soon.

Here is a little beauty I picked up recently, a Yamaha YR3, 350cc 2 stroke twin.
As you can see it is rough as but I am basically going to keep it that way, just fix up all the stuff required for
safe riding and leave as is with ace bars and a cafe seat of some sort, and put rearsets on it. The ducktail is just sitting there, from a 1980 Kawasaki Z250A not sure I will use it yet, may look a bit too modern?

cheers...... chris

It's difficult to say, at this point. It's not the ''traditional'' rond forms, but who cares...
I think you can make something really cool out of it !

yes it will be a little while before I start it, but your right, who cares as long as I like it. I tell I was meant to have this bike too. The wire harness is shot but I just happen to have a NOS one in the cubboard, I bought it for the DS5 some time back and it was incorrect for it. Also see that alloy cover on the seat area, well I replaced it with a new one I had here, never knew what it was for. And to boot I have NOS heads here too. The F1750 should be finished in a week or so barr the paint, after that I go back to my GPZ, after that I will begin the YR3.

cheers.chris
