    One from long ago, 1977. A buddy and I rode Kawasaki 4's to California in the summer and somewhere came across this VW/2 at a gas station.

    Put this in the garage yesterday - after riding it around first, of course. ;)

    1983 Yamaha XT250, 3490 miles

    No major plans - after thorough inspection and some routine maintenance I'll be swapping out tires for something more road worthy - goal is to keep it real

    Thanks Dudes! Yes, it is 900 Ninja is sporting the original paint, however all the body work was purchased from ebay from one bike that was being parted out. The muffler and headers are D&D aftermarket.
    Cheers!

    This has to be the best rattle can paint job I've ever seen! Looks great.

    I got the DuoGlide running today. *:ricky
    The motor sounds far nicer than I ever remembered it sounding!
    I've got an issue with the paint - where the gas caps attach, with a bit of peeling from the gas fumes.
    The clear coat is fuel proof, but the primer and color coat are not which is were the problem lies. Have to figure a way to seal that area, so it does not spread.
    Also the sprung seat post is locked up - wierd... will have to pull it apart.
    Dang these old panheads love to piss oil from the breather into the primary, and all over the floor.

    Do like!

    Easy to find parts? Are those bikes a bit decent?
