GuyWithAviators' Yamaha V50

Bought this cheap from TM for a cheap run about/daily. Bought plates for it off Fliboi, so if they look familiar that's why ;)

Wasn't going when I got it but after cleaning this crap out of the exhaust:

Mmmmm two strokey goodness. And cleaning the carb it just ran, no worries :D

Someone had decided that mph were faster so put this sticker on the speedo, good for me coz the dial underneath was still as new

After it sat in the garage for a few days noticed a puddle of petrol under it  :doubt:

Surprisingly Yamaha had a replacement fuel tap seal, so that's all fixed now :D

Have had it to just over 65km/h on flat  :wink:

Looking to the infamous QCR for inspiration along the way too ;)

I thought you'd like that ;)

 

Was bored in tech class at school the other day so asked the teacher if I could bring it into the workshop to look at/work on, being the gc he is he said yes so  i rode it through the corridors into class and may or may not have lost traction on the Lino floors.....

Ended up just removing the baffle from the exhaust, sounds better now ;) seems to go quicker or is that just me? Does removing it damage anything? 

 

I've decided I want to strip the bike completely and paint it, something glossy/shiny. Any ideas or suggestions? 

I also want to make a half seat for it and move the rear shock mounts up

Sourcing some replacement telescopic forks, have some DJ bike bars, got the steel to make up a hard tail rear end and have measured up the seat to chop it in half to make a new slimmer one in white. And eventually a wee expansion chamber.

Going to end up a nice metallic brown with black engine etc and white wheels. That's the plan anyway.

 

Comments/opinions welcome!

But eventually it will happen...

 

But yes as mo999 says it will be ideal to commute around on. Can't wait to have my clothes smell like two-stroke everyday

Also anyone going from Chch to Auckland and got room for a moped?  :profileleft:

Dad's been working on this for me. Chopped the front guard where it was broken so it doesn't look so ugly but still protects engine.

and put it all together and made it go! (this was actually before the above^ parts)

 

 

It's booked with the man who took his Fiat 500 from backload4u to come up here mid May in the back of a truck. Excite.
