It needs to cure before I can put it together, but I will take some pictures of the pieces.

Sorry to make you guys wait. Here are some pictures of my progress. The color line should match up from the tank and the hump once I get the seat back from upholstery. Fresh bushings/bearings and shafts in the swig arm. I will be adding some yamaha decals and emblems.

'81 GSX400F tank, frame and engine with DR650 front and back ends, XR250 shocks and seat..

800 genuine km's on the engine.
Was stolen and returned in parts.
I bought the bits off the 85 year old original owner to help clear some shed space

He wants first ride...

It's just held together by gravity at the moment...

The moment has lasted 2 years and counting...

Thanks guys! I hope it all comes together in the end. This bike is the motorcycle version of a quilt; A bunch of different pieces assembled to make one. Maybe that is what I should call this bike. lol.....the Yamaha Quilt400. :) I got the suspension on tonight. I wont be putting the rear wheel on till I get a wider rim (2.15) sourced/laced. I slapped the tank and seat on her to take a few pictures for ya.

Nice job

That looks great so far! The paint looks good, I like the way the lines are on it.

I got the motor bolted in the frame today. I just wanted to say thanks to my dad for coming over to give me a hand today. I went in pretty smoothly. A little pipe insulation and masking tape goes a long way for paint protection during installation. My fiberglass wrap came today. SO i figured I better get my pipes painted so I can wrap them tomorrow. I would like to install the exhaust while the engine cases are off, because it will give me much more room to slip them behind the frame. All the paint I have been using on the engine and exhaust it VHT flame proof ceramic 2000 degree paint. I also ordered my new rear rim today. I'm switching to a 2.15 the 1.85 was way to narrow for the tire.
