 Dave,

The article is from an 1982 edition of Australian Motor Cycle News.

[img]Hi All,
Not finding a "intro" site so I'll do here.
Greeting from a sunny South Africa. First & foremost thanks for a very informative & "professional" site. I recently acquired this '82/83 model 175 from a yes believe it or not, original owner that purchased this bike new in 1983!
No mods (side cover were painted  :() otherwise all 100% with road kit included.
As I am obsessive/compulsive when it comes to cosmetics I will probably strip down to last nut & bolt & make it look like when it left the factory.
My sanity side is telling me to not go to this extreme again as I would like to use the bike for Vinduros (unfortunately we have a very small following here & even the VMX scene is relatively small).
In the interim fork- & crank seal will be replaced.
Regards,
OB

Man they are so loud that after a days riding my ears were bleeding. I lost my hearing for a month, luckily no permanent damage otherwise I would have sued Yamaha for making a bike that was more than 98db.
No rush, there's plenty of time. Do it next week, what could have been done today.
