Custom Yamaha SR250 Project

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.

Custom Yamaha SR250 Project

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.

Tank prepped and ready for paint In between non-bike related work we've managed to keep things ticking over, thanks to bike night our weekly ritual.The progress on the Blossom the SR tracker is coming along nicely with most parts …We also managed to pop out a rather large ding from the Sweet Honda tank by spotting a couple of pieces of my old CD stand, we could probably thank Spotify for that.
