New To Y.O.C Don't Ride but not new to Biking :)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My names Richie saying Hi from Blackpool!

Inherited a 1968 Yamaha DT-1 250. She needs a lot of loving but i'm aiming to do a complete restoration. :eusa_shifty:

My grandad has owned her from new but unfortunately she was laid up to rest after some issues. She was ridden back from Saudi in the late 80's and hasn't been used since (Although she isn't seized :spin2: ).

My dad has been riding for years and throughout my childhood I attended many rallies and events i just dont ride myself, hopefully after the DT1 is restored that will be the next step.

Well hope to meet and chat with most of you guys as i'm pretty sure if i get stuck one of you will be able to help.

Cheers,

Rich :eusa_whistle:

Shes in a bit of a sorry state but is coming apart well only worked on it for an hour tonight and ready for engine out. Aiming to get all original lights clocks etc to restore her to former glory. Got a spare engine with her as well which is a bit of a bonus. Its actually 1972 not 68 my Grandad got confused but hes old, so easily forgiven still ace for what it is though.

are these pikkies from a photobucket account or direct from the PC?

you need the tags IMG for them to show via photobucket or similar hosting site
