The Switch - Custom Yamaha XS250

This was our first project. The donor bike was a knarly little 81 Yamaha XS250. We found this in a shed in a little town called Ipswich commonly referred to by locals as "THE SWEEEAAACCCHHHH" plus or minus a twang and a twitch.
It was a non-runner not having been started in about 6 years, had only 30k on the clock and a few dings to the tank, exhausts, fender. Carb inlets were shot, gas cap wouldnt open with the key, but the engine was still in pretty good condition.
