New project, 1971 Yamaha RT1 360

Just picked this up today. I had a DT2 in highschool and have been on the lookout for an old Yammi enduro for a while when this one fell in my lap. 4500 miles and I believe it, Will need a good cosmetic going over. Motor is free and great compression. The price was too good to ignore IMO. All parts needed are in the box, plus a bunch of new stuff, brake shoes, cables, etc. Should be a fairly easy resto. Problem is I have to finish some remodeling projects first so it will be after the first of the year before I can get started. That's a killer, although a great incentive to get this remodeling done :)

I should be able to salvage the original chrome and paint on the gas and oil tank fairly easily. Paintless dent removal for the one minor dent and some touch up and buffing and she'll look like a million bucks. And NO rust inside the tank, woo hoo. Always a huge plus.
