    Fuck sake. Traffic leaving Wellington is pretty much toast. SH1 blocked by truck rollover, SH2 blocked by 2 trucks colliding. Traffic is going to be tooooooooooast tonight. Expect a Yowzer spec arrival from everyone leaving Wellington after work. "State Highway" Interislander is the only way out of the city in a car at the moment.

    LG's 1985 Yamaha TT250 Thumper

    Misc parts So this model was a bit obscure, seems most of the world had the SOHC TT225, whereas Aus/NZ/Japan had the DOHC TT250, similar to the 350/600. Aussie websites have part number listings for the 250, appears most chassis parts seem interchangeable with the 350, the SRX250 used the same engine, and many parts appear to be common with the XT. So I've ordered a bit of gear from all over the place - gaskets, grommets, sprockets, etc, plus a clutch cable from Aus, and assorted missing/worn bits. Surprisingly, Youshop works out ok when you're buying a lot at the same time, a large consolidated package costs around $40 delivery, which isn't bad for 12-odd packages... Swingarm seems in pretty good nick so far (haven't looked at bearings/bushings yet) but the plastic chain guides need replaced and are hard to find/$$$. I found an entire swingarm on eBay for $39 with all plastics on it, so bought that and was $50 to forward it to NZ (not too bad). Looks pretty good and the plastic parts are in great nick... Wheel = well poked, obviously split externally but was amazed at the corruption inside after I finally wrestled the old tyre off (was hard AF)... Tried to get all old spokes out in one piece to re-use if possible and was going really well using sprays and heat (plus a good spoke spanner) till I snapped one, so gave up and grabbed a new spoke set. Then after looking at what was available locally I bought a 21" rim from Aliexpress, will see how that goes after it arrives and I lace it all up... Some parts are stupid expensive or unobtainable, so looked at what I could use instead. The rubber cap on the steering stem will keep water out, so after a measure up I found rubber bike bar ends will fit, 83c on Ali for 2... A rear fender tool bag would be nice to have, but I'm not paying $50 for one. Found this though, a red cosmetic bag the perfect size for $12 from Ali. Just have to remember to replace the lippy with a plug spanner... Ordered a full set of brake pads (Fr and Rear) for $22 from Ali, and high capacity Koyo headstock bearings from eBay. You can get cheaper bearings but they're something I don't mind spending money on. Bought a seat cover and bash plate on tardme, and this spare parts carb from Aus, looks to have the bits I need... So doing what I can while parts are in transit, hopefully it won't get parked up (like other projects) and I'll get it running reasonably soon to hoon. there's quite a following with old dirt bikes now and they seem to have some good runs...
