The carburettor it has currently is a spacko and I opened it just yesterday and it had the same jetting as the pacco (56mm main jet). The float also had 'by license from dellorto' written on it. I am not too smart in the head when it comes to carburettors so your inputs much needed here. What I am thinking is that in the rare event of me not being able to source a jikov, I will use the present carburettor. I will not be able to fit the cover but I will get the same performance. Right?
And the rear tyre is the standard one. It probably looks different because the mudguard is slightly bent. I plan on getting the tyres in the near future because prices are expected to go up. What do you sat?
Tyre prices have already gone up. A year back i had purchased MRF tyres for 650 each now the prices are very step. Go for CEAT or MRF they are good

Ranjit

I know. Spellings of carburettors are about the only thing i get 100%
. That one was an absent minded mistake.
I will be going to Mysore, Bangalore and Delhi in the next month so I hope to be able to source a Jikov. And dont keep saying you threw away a jikov, at least not on this thread. Remember, I do know where you stay!

If you are near to mysore you can get the Jikov from there itself.
No need to go to Delhi for a carb you can order the same. Which ever is convenient / suitable for you. Anyways Jain Auto in Mysore is having all the spares which you might need

Happy Hunting & Restoring

Ranjit

ok now to cut the long story short, when i started this thread last year, I was in the process of getting my dad's friends Jawa to my place. However, as luck had destined something else for me, that Jawa did not come to me.

The Jawa / Yezdi bug had bit me and that too big time. I kept looking out for a Jawa / yezdi wherever i went.

Meanwhile, i was in constant touch with Ranjit - Jawabiker and he was a continuous guiding star for me. Everytime there was a disappointment, I used to discuss with him and he used to tell me not to worry. There is always a bike where there is a rider

We kept searching wherever we had clue at times even going to people we did not intend to. Finally, day before y'day that is on Thursday, we got hold of a 1986 yezdi classic CL II !!

Some points about the bike.

- It is a single owner bike.
- Engine not yet touched
- The exteriors are not in that bad shape.
- Runs and fires like it is just out of the showroom
- minor parts like the original handle bar and headlight assembly are missing

Have decided to restore the bike in 2 phases :

Phase 1 - Get the bare minimum things required to make the bike a daily runner (tyre, tube, headlight assembly, brake lever assembly)

Phase 2 - Source all the required parts first and then get the bike for a proper paint / chrome job so as to get it back to factory like.

I am posting a few pics of the bike as it is now and will also try and update the restoration process as soon as possible.

ok. so the work on the yezdi had been halted for a while ( a week to be precise).

The paperwork was incomplete and therefore the overall process of restoration had been halted. Now that the RTO formalities are in process, the yezdi will now go for a proper restoration.

I have been able to source the handle, the original headlight dome and the the original front mudguard.

The plan is now to strip down the vehicle , paint the chassis , the tank and the side panels. Also, the silencers and other stuff will be going for chrome plating.

As of now I am using the bike daily for short runs and trying to get used to it. Meanwhile, the search online is going on for paint schemes for the bike.

Please suggest colour options for the bike.

Posting the current avatar of the yezdi along with my bull.

350biker, IMHO the current two-tone shade looks perfect on the Classic. I would suggest that you retain with the same colour, and paint/powdercoat the airbox black too. So basically, tank & side shields silver, everything else black. And make sure you get the gold pinstripes done too. This combo looks stunning on a friend's bike in Bangalore.

Also, was the front mudguard corroded beyond repair? Because it is the original one, no need for replacement.

Cheers,
Rahul
