PROJECT SWitCh

Well this is our first project and we thought what better way to document the build than through a blog. The donor for project switch is a beast of a thing, a knarly little 81 Yamaha XS250.

Well this is our first project and we thought what better way to document the build than through a blog. The donor for project switch is a beast of a thing, 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 wouldn't open with the key, but the engine was still in pretty good condition.


We kicked it a few times and managed to turn it over although it didn't seem to hold charge.


Now we have a starting point next up is the tear down.
