Thanks smarty. Its an old saying, patience rewards. Hence we're taking it really slow and patiently with the build. I'm glad you appreciate it.

Hope to see her on the roads in a few weeks, sparkling envy in others eyes.

Hi Chirag. That is a 3.00 Dunlop for the rear. Its the same V12 has used in the Cafe racer.

getsurya - You can still get one in scrap condition and start rebuilding one before all the spares go off the shelf.

dude the 2T oil tank is old one ? it does not make any diffrence if it is old or new because it will be covered after.
Try to change the 2T oil indicator to a new one ( just an advice )

Yes you can change the lens cover to give it a clean new look, meter can be retained and ensure that you get the lens with the rubber O ring.

Default Tuesday!

Hey guys. Thanks a ton for all the suggestions. Jaggu Bhai, the 2T tank lens has currently been buffed but I shall definitely replace it with a new one as soon as I can. I've changed the O-ring to keep it from any leakages.

V12: Thanks a ton brother. Those words build my confidence every day even though we face problems that sometimes bring me down. Like yesterday, we were all set to assemble the engine when we noticed that the crank bearing seat was a bit too loose and the bearing kept slipping out. Also, one of the gear shifers pins has been worn out bad. Plus the primary gear could do with a replacement. So getting all those issues sorted out today.

As for the color, I've taken a Black base with a metallic blue sparkles. So in the shade, it will look like any black yam, but in the sun, it will glisten a completely different shade of a blue black metallic one. Looks better than it sounds.

Chirag, I shall move up the ladder to a michelin after a few months buddy. Tyres can't be easily replaced once they're on the rim. PLus, since V12 is using the same, I opted for the same combination. I'm sure they'll be worth the money and ride. Its going to be a new Yam. It has to ride well.

No pictures from yesterday though. Will have some today hopefully. The silver parts have come in. So the front shocks should be mounted today with the front tyre and mudguard. We've almost finished wiring the bike from head to tail. The rest will happend once the engine gets mounted and the magnet coil setup goes on and then we shall fire her up.

Oh yes, also, finished the carb yesterday. So hopefully I should have a lot of pictures to put up tonight. Cheers cheers:

Default Pictures!!

Hey guys. Well, she's finally done with the front end. Got the shocks and wheels on and all set. Did the break linkages for te front and rear also. Pictures of the centre assembly with the foot brake is also here and the electronics installed. Also got a new window for the 2T tank, as suggested by Jaggu Bhai. Got the air filter box installed. Switch assembly and handle bar on too.

Also got the engine cases back from paint. Will be expecting the crank halves done today and 99%, engine assembled tonight. The flasher and CDI will go on once the engine is mounted.

Also I've enclosed two pics of my garage. See you tomorrow with newer pics and a more complete bike.

Default Friday and the engine is up.

Well, to go by the order, its a 71 Jawa, a 78 Yezdi, a 50cc Pocket rocket (the small bike on stand. Its got racing slicks and disc brakes on both wheels. And it does 80kmh) a 54 BSA and the one with split seats is the 41 Matchless. Currently we've removed the Engine cos we're working on another engine of the same model. But fitting a 500cc block.

Well, all that said, we managed to complete a lot of engine work last night and have mounted and bolted the engine to the frame. Pics enclosed and also installed the new primary gear. New Cylinder kit, new struts, new bolts, screws and nuts. Installed the engine breather, gear shifter ball is in and neutral switch is set too. Keeping my fingers crossed, I think we should start this baby up tonight.

Hey YamBoy. Thank you. I wonder, how did you miss the thread? Its sweet to meet another ardent yamaha rx100 fan. Man, its a totally different feeling which I am glad I got to experience and am going to relive again. Sorry to the new gen 4strokers. No offense.

Well guys, we finally started her up yesterday. I was wondering if she'll start or not and in the fourth kick, she sprang to life. Beautiful. The plug spark is great due to the new 12V coil setup and the beat of a new silencer is perfect. However, one little snag. The kick lever became free after some time. It would engage and but not everytime. SO will open the clutch case again today. There is a small Y clip on the shaft that holds the starting gear. We have a new one that came in the kit but didn't replace it. SO will sort that out and should have her all ready in a nother day or two. Two small pics to show her current status.
