Hi all, Following on to my DR650 "Build up thread" which has stalled slightly due to no available engines. To keep myself busy & a chance to give a legend a second chance in life im rebuilding a Yamaha XT600 & will be know know as Project Ténéré I was browsing our local online flea market (Gumtree) where i came upon the bike, it looked sorta familiar? so after a phone call to the guy i established it was a bike i had seen advertised last year on Gumtree, i was tempted to buy it but had the empty pocket syndrome & passed it buy. Since i last saw it Tony (the very nice Welshman i bought it from) had stripped the bike right down & had started to restore it, the frame & swing arm had been sandblasted & the powder-coated, he had done his best to match the color using the inside of the original side panels (French Blue) and a real nice job has been done. Here`s a pic taken by the original backpacker owner next to the Pinncales here in Western Australia, the bike was a running bike when Tony got hold of it before Christmas, and is still a road registered bike And here some pics on my dining table after Tony was kind enough to drop it off round my place, its on the dining table because the coffee table is full of DR frames. not sure where the Elsinore going to go?, that`s another project bike im putting together (even more slowly than the DR`s) its a 78/79 Honda CR250R "Red Rocket" & will document that one day as well, website on that has started already, here. This is what it should end up looking like (click image to go full size 400mb) So any advice on these bikes would be nice from fellow inmates as i don`t know much about them, in particular is the graphics? does anyone know where you can get a set of reproductions or originals would be even better So popcorn at the ready Mezo.
