Installed the largest beach cruiser style bars we could find on this Yamaha Tour Deluxe. Extended cables, hoses and wiring to retain the factory look and function so this sweet bike can lap up the miles in comfortable awesomeness.
It seems everyone had a Honda XL at some point in their life. This XL350 is getting all dolled up for the trails! Frame has been powder coated, engine has been painted and even clear coated!! Tank is out getting a fresh coat of paint to match it’s original styling. Should be a super sweet ride when completed that the customer thinks might be too pretty to take in the dirt… I bet the call of the wild will have him tossing rooster tails and traversing creeks before too long.
I didn’t have much opportunity to work on the T160 this winter… I was hoping to have it road worthy before the end of March, but that ain’t gonna happen. I did manage to hot wire the old fellow and lit him off with a touch of raw fuel in the intake tracts. Sounded good and tight and made me smile!! Would sure be nice to go for a cruise down Old Church way and watch the pavement roll under those wheels before old man winter steps on our toes again… But the way this season is going, that might be next week.
