That is totally awesome Timbo, it has inspired my mate Brad and i to build a pushy each for the summer. We have a huge mountain of pushy spares, Brad's whole family are into BMX, freestyle and down hill. They have years worth or old frames, parts wheels etc.. even real old hand shift levers and funk...

I am not sure if yams came out with different thickness of chain tensioners but i know the 750 honda's did, the earlier 69-76 K series had a wide slotted tensioner and the later 78-82 DOHC models including 750's-900's had a slimmer slotted chain tensioner setup. I am unsure of your axle size or the ...

That's an interesting thought there Cromag! I also recommend that once your alloy has been polished get a bloke like me :lol: to slap some 2pak clearcoat over the top, it will retain the alloys shine and protect it against corrosion and U.V rays etc. However, the alloy after about 4-5 years of frequ...

I find that using a wire wheel or brush to remove paint tends to bruise or melt the alloy, i use paint stripper and wash it off with brake fluid, followed by a further wash down with water. The brake fluid acts as a paint stripper but in a less potent and much thinner form (gets into the hard to rea...

I agree with Cromag, i'd be replacing the whole back bone with a new piece.. You can remove the gussets.. but if you do, i would personally replace them with some other forum of gusset to keep the strength there, maybe you could design your own and make it a unique feature. Good luck, lookin great a...
