Good one Austini! I don't think there is a class for the best presented. :mrgreen:
Did you have any trouble getting the parts? Where from? I'm going to refurbish my TY this year, so I'm looking out for parts suppliers.

Thanks stu she looks good in the pic but don't look too close, she will be riding Cgrade so I wasn't aiming for a museum piece.

As for parts Ebay,Bjracing, and some pretty cool french sites not forgetting your local Yamaha supplier, most parts are easyer to get than some new bikes its just a case of knowing where too look and how fat your wallet is!!!!!! :P

RESTOREMAZ,
You are still looking for swingarm? someone correct me if I'm wrong but the only difference between 175 and 250 swing arm is the chain tensioner mounting!! so buy a new one from your guy and mod the tensioner..
hope this helps get your bike in the section..
Cheers

The Ty250 swingarm is not interchangable with the Ty175 swingarm. The Ty250 swingarm is quite a bit shorter than the Ty175 and is wider at the pivot.

Thanks Restoremaz I'll try Red Baron and see what they can get. I've tried City Coast Yamaha in the past and they have been pretty good.
