Its legal and all the lights are on and wired now.. Still needs mirrors and a bash plate... Cant decide on options... Flipflopping on a few modern items like hand guards....

I like this!

My next project may be something similar, or a Ducati 900ss based period racer look....

Well I know no project bike is ever done but I can call this one done for now.  Its all inspected and has been out on some all day rips and its doing well. Some items that needed fixed were a dent pounded our of the rear rim a couple of new spokes and truing. Also a PO had overtightend the oil pan drain bolt cracking the oil pan.. I got a friend to TIG it up and its holding for now .. Pan is still avialable from Yamaha so it may be replaced at some point in the future. I modded some steel pegs for a YZ250 to replace the small narrow and bent origionals (much better to stamd on) It will be getting new tires and perhaps some future comfort mods.
 Next summer it is my goal to ride this thing to and through a 3 day ADV Rally about 400kms away in the next provence taking with me all the gear I need on the bike. Be a mix of back roads and trails with some brief 4 lane stints to get there and back... So next spring she may see some stuff like an Aux fuel jug and rack and soft pannier hoops and possibily new rear shocks and a small fly screen. Over the winter she will get new points and condensor and maybe a new stator plate and coil. Also not really happy with the cheap ebay speedometer so I may source some stock guages or do something modern like a trail tech in the future...

But for this fall... I am simply going to ride and enjoy!
