1979 YAMAHA RD125
Restored in 2005 this little 125 looked beyond all hope, the biggest problem being that all of the chrome work had rotted through and was beyond repair. But, with a few phone calls, the majority of bright parts were located as new old stock at various specialist parts suppliers. The parts not sourced new were tracked down as second hand that could be re-chromed.

The task of restoring her to her former glory had started. All of the usable parts were either plated, painted or chromed and after a few months the transformation was complete We could see why the customer wanted us to restore the bike he had fond memories of as a teenager, because when we rode it, its lovely smooth engine and sharp handling made it such a joy to ride. He later informed us that it had won a prize at his local classic show!
