TTR Raid - Aquired Last Week
Permalink  
 


Hi,

I bought this last week from an advert on the forum here. I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised when I collected it as it seems pretty good really and to my untrained eye, quite original? All the bits and pieces are there, the tank and seat are in good condition and there are lots of extras too.  It initially needs a bit of rust sorting out on the rear of the frame, then putting back together...

Paintwork looks in really good condition! Still has the really nice finish to the cylinder head! Seems to fade on the blueys.

Like the big handguards, what brand are they?

You are right Malcolm! The anodising (I assume that is the finish) holds up a lot lot better on the older bikes.

Hi,

The frame forward of the swinging arm is really good, behind is a bit flakey (paint) and a bit of corrosion. It not that bad having looked at it but its worth sorting it out I think. The hand guards just have "Yamaha" on them, no other marking.

The original headlight can be seen in the top photo. Mounts onto the headlight guard/bar 😁

Getting the rust sorted out,

As it was...

P2040010 (2).JPG

Grind the worst of it out, then treat...

Prime...

Paint...and hope it matches reasonably well...(even though it will all be covered up once the bike is back together). The finish is a bit better than it looks in the picture, honest.

The paint does look close compared to one of the grab rails, but has come out very slightly darker, it is purple but looks blue here. I had it made up locally.
