Mate keep one thing in mind that dont use the gas tank untill you treat it, rust will eat engine within 200-300 kms.
Get her nice paint job from sarakki and chrome, Balaji knows all.
Let me know if you need more power any time.

I don't think assembling should be an issue when you have all the parts any two stroke mechanics esp the Yamaha guys would be able to do the job as someone mentioned these were simple and easy to fix bikes. Please approach POWERTWIN he would be of a great help in my opinion, this gentleman has got amazing experience and collection and will guide you the better way. ALL THE VERY BEST.

Wow! thanks Powertwin you revived my memories of those days when I saw these bikes lined up at a showroom, your single bike made me feel as if a new bike is delivered today, wow can't explain my joy, yellow color chrome mud gaurd, mono shock it's amazing to see a bike still fresh from the battered stage.
