A 1988 Yamaha YSR50 was the very first bike I learned how to paint on when I was 12 years old. I remember sanding it down, taking it all apart – every bolt, tires off the rims, the engine came out, gas tank and fairings came off.
Everything came off of the bike. I then repainted the frame, did the body work and painted the whole bike with white pearl and completely restored it. It came out really amazing and sold it a few months later for $2500.
I saw the same model on eBay a couple of weeks ago and I bid on it. I just had to get it because it was sentimental to me. And I got it at a very reasonable price. I got it cheap with a clear title and it has only 3700 original miles on it.
I can’t believe the condition of this thing. I have to get a battery for it. There are dings and cracks on the ferrings, stress cracks on the sides, some chipped and cracked parts that can be fixed and it runs great!
It looks good but it can look a lot better.
I’m going to take it completely apart again and do a version 2.0 but I’m not going to sell it. That will be my next project and I’m going to document the whole process and share it with you guys.
I have a lot in mind about what the new look is going to be but I need your help.
Comment below on what color combo I should spray on this thing… Tell me what you think we should do. What are your thoughts?
I can’t wait to hear from all of you!
