Boneyard Customs Yamaha TD250

Heath "Twigz" Twigden is the man behind Oz-based Boneyard Customs, and his greatest passion is bringing back together scrapyard bikes, rebuilding them and having them riding anew. With a passion for motorcycles almost as old ah he is, it's small wonder that his bikes look so great. Here's an Yamaha TD250 that's almost 40 years old, yet brighter and nimbler that it could ever dream it would ever be.

The initial bike was pretty mauled and the gearbox would not get past second, so Heath tore the bike apart completely and started to rebuild it piece by piece. Since the main idea behind the project was a flat-tracker, the Yamaha got lowered and received a Suzuki TS185 fork and rims.

The rest of the TD250 is pretty much original, including the hubs laced to the new rims. The frame, tank and rear fender got top-notch paint jobs and the seat was also revised. However, the seat is also original: foam reshaping and cover being re-stretched made it look like a custom one.

Such a low 2-stroke bike must be indeed fun to ride; in fact Twigz rides it on a constant basis and he claims it even more fun than we can imagine. Via PipeBurn.
