Yamaha RD60 anyone own one/rebuild questions?

I am about to rebuild a 1975 Yamaha RD60.
I will have some Questions.
I appreciate any input, as this will be my first engine rebuild and my first 2 stroke.
My wife wanted a bike to run around Barber Vintage Festival.

Post up a pic of the little bugger. I don't remember them as I was into the MX stuff.

I saw this example in Kenicott, Alaska years ago.


Cool little bike in a town of many interesting relics. Good luck with the resto.

That's exactly what my RD60 looks like.
I even like the green!
I took the engine out and I don't think it weights any more than the old 1940's steel 26" springer bike I bought for $5.00 as a kid
I am currently taking it apart to clean it.
When I am finished with that I want to put new crank seals in and rebuild the carb.
I put in an order with Partszilla and will be interested how many parts are back-ordered.

It's been a few years , mind you , but the motor looks like a mid 70's GT80 motor. If the strokes the same too , you could make it an 80.

I had an orange one in college. I could tuck my knees in, put my chin on the tank and hit 60 mph on that little guy. Fun machine.
