1979 Yamaha YZ250 on display at the 2014 Idaho Vintage Motorcycle Show -- Caldwell

The owner fabricated many of the parts himself including the tank, pipe swingarm, and intake carb spigot.





The tank is painted aluminum.  Beautiful work!

    1. It's not my bike and I had nothing to do with the fabrication. I just posted because I was so impressed by the craftsmanship. Hopefully the owner will read this and provide an update.

    1. I thermo formed the airbox cover with ABS plastic, and the number plates with HDPE plastic. Thanks.

    3. Awesome bike! Where can I get an angled rubber carb to intake connector like the one shown in the second photo? I made the aluminum part but I need the rubber connector. Where can we see more pics of this bike? Thanks.
