PROJECT "Leg Breaker"

Time for a new project, and this one is a cute little thing. It's a 1980 Yamaha RS125 / RX125 two stroke or "two smoke" as they're also known.

Time for a new project, and this one is a cute little thing. It's a 1980 Yamaha RS125 / RX125 two stroke or "two smoke" as they're also known. We managed to pick this up from a guy southsieeede way that was overstocked on classic little bikes.

It's all original with a little over 15,000kms on the clock. Even comes with the original side covers and reflectors on the side of the frame.

Why the name "Leg Breaker"? Apparently the owner before this one, his son had a bit of a Lara Bingle and broke his leg in the process. After the incident the bike sat in the shed never to be ridden again... until now.

Don't worry I've hired a priestess, to warn away any bad bike karma so there will no chance of this happening again. Shesplashed holy water over it and said a few words to warn away any bad bike karma. Well it wasn't exactly holy water, but tap and the words were more like "wow it smells like a lawn mower". Anyway I'm sure it's done the trick.

After we got it home, we kicked it over first go and it idled beautifully and with the smell of two stroke in the air we took it for a spin up the street. She ran out of go while trying to open the throttle so I pulled the carb apart and cleaned it out. The pilot and main were blocked and clearing them fixed the issue.

So without further ado we present the "LEG BREAKER"

Scramblers have always been somewhat the bastard child of the custom family when the most recent scene kicked off. Cafe Racers and Trackers where the favourites, playing with the other bikes on the streets while the Scrambler was left playing …I think think there is change in the air with custom VMX and Scrambler becoming the the customisation of choice by a lot of backyard builds popping up along with the big shops like Bratstyle.

While the Switch has been for sale we've had a few enquires for some of the parts we've used. Have just created a small shelf of small pieces that can help with a tracker build and what we had used.
