1964 YAMAHA 250 YDS3 CAFE RACERJust completed this build. Bike runs excellent. You can ride coast to coast if needed. Starts 1 or 2 cranks every time w/ new PVL race ignition. Every part of this motorcycle was rebuilt. replaced new. polished. powder coated. etc. ENGINE; every serviceable part is new. Stock bore. really. bike had about 4000 miles on engine. When I disassembled I was amazed at the condition of ALL internals. Bore was honed and miced out perfect. Rebuilt crankshaft w/ new bearing and seals. Reassembled w/ . 000 runout. New pistons. rings. wrist pins. etc. New Barnett clutch. Carbs where perfect also. rebuilt and bored to 26 mm from the stock 24 mm. Custom velocity stacks w/ special machined in stainless steel screens that are hidden inside. Ports where polished mostly. raised exhaust port and intake slightly. wanted to keep motor more reliable than all-out race. Expansion chambers are hand built per race drawings I found. They are also adjustable for tuning. Pipes are very nice. New PVL race ignition. Unbelievable engine response w/ PVL. I highly recommend these ignitions for all older engines. I have installed 6 ea. of them w/ excellent results. FRAME; sugar blasted. 2 part urethane primer and 2 part urethane metallic silver. Swing-arm extended 2 inches. SUSPENSION; New 2 ea. rear progressive shocks. Front rebuilt and powder coated. WHEELS; both where totally rebuilt and trued w/ special tires and tubes. BRAKES / HUBS; all new (powder coated) and very custom machine work. (view pics). brake hubs are slotted and drilled for cooling. Very nice custom work. DRIVE; new heavy duty X chain o-ringed. Have 3 ea. new front sprockets and rear sprocket is custom machined for light weight. MISC; new custom rear-sets which can be indexed. They are knurled and polished. Wood craft clip-ons. steering stabilizer. nice new small racing headlight. tach. custom built nickel-metal hyd battery hidden under seat. PAINT; done by professional shop. Base coat / clear coat. awesome. I know I have forget to include all that was done. not to mention the 100's of hours in this build. I'm a 56 year old machinist / bike builder. Also I will have another vintage 1967 Yamaha YR1 350 I will finish in a few days to list also. Its built as a cafe tracker. The manager at local vintage bike shop here in Baton Rouge told me bike is worth $8500. 00 Naturally I will take less. Bike will sell on E bay now. as I have NO RESERVE. Also I know shipping is an issue. I WILL pay half of shipping cost (up to $300. 00) to help out. I will include bill of sale. there is no title on this old bike. Any motorcycle over 25 years old can be registered in your state. If you have any questions and need to talk more in detail. please give me a call. Brandon @ 225-939-1300. Thanks all for viewing.
