Just for you D.T.
Stand back and admire, but please don't ride it - way to purdy - do not git it dirty.
We will see about that.
I really didn't do much with the bike this week. I did gather up some materials to make some plywood doors for under my counter. I think I'm going to have about 20 bucks into this by the time I'm done. That's just for hinges and hardware. Throw a little paint on them and we be havin some thins. I will finish the right side maybe tomorrow since I need to go to Home Depot to get some more stuff.
Yesteday afternoon after cleaning up a bunch of stuff, I took the Yammies out and washed them up. The 400 looks really good finally with all the dust off it. I figured I would wash the little 125 at the same time.
Our little village is having a street fair/car-bike show next weekend that is being put on by the chamber of commerce. They asked me if I could bring a couple of bikes to display in a vintage competition exhibition class to see if it would bring more interest instead of the usual Harley junk. I think I am going to do it.
My question/poll is.............Should I keep the desert racing numbers on the bikes or put stock number plates on?
Yes/no..........and why. Thanks
Today's itinerary should consist of watching the Indy 500, sell a Yamaha LT2 bike I don't need, and I think I am going to change out the rear tire on this bike and go for a ride. Then come home and go over the 400 again to make sure everything is tight.

Finished the bike up. It lives. Now I am going to take a break and contemplate my next project. I may finish my 78 Husky. Thanks for viewing my build thread.

Oh boy would I enjoy your Hercules.
Ya it sure is a blast!
Great read, great job, great bike. Well Done.
Scott, I got my YZ400 motor rebuilt. Will post pics on my thread (in a year or two).
Where ya been Ray?
I love the old YZ tanks.
So like no ride report? You just parkin' it?
I rode it up and down my street a couple of times. Run's fine. It is more of a bike to look at and start every once in awhile. I have many other bikes to "really" ride.
Ride it. :huh
I for certain will not let Art ride it.
Took the YZ400 motor to a fellow for rebuild last NOVEMBER. Got it back on Saturday and installed yesterday, still a few things to finish, then fire it up.
I have four other dirt bikes to ride (and maintain) so I keep busy. Been fixin' up a '96 YZ250 for my son - totally rebuilt front and rear suspension plus other odds and ends. Now the bike is in good shape. Also restoring a '74 BMW R90/6 for my son. Too many projects, but it keeps me out of the pool hall.
