It's ridable! The clutch is rooted, new plates and springs coming. Going to lash out on a new ignition system for it as well. But I am on track to have it ready for a practice day and race day at the end of the month. Not long now. #dt400 #vintagebike #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #vintageflattrack #2strokesrule #twostrokepipe #gettingexcited

I've been hunting around for and old school style folding rubber peg. Everything in the shops and on ebay is crappy looking chrome or really flimsy looking. Thought I would have to drop into the wreckers next time I was near. Walking past the other DT 400 frame I have and hanging off the swingarm was the original passenger pegs. Score! Bit of a clean up and job done πŸ‘ #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack #2strokesrule #twostrokepipe #bellmoto3 #moto3 #motosycho577 #heavenvmx

Except for a few minor jobs. It is finished!! I'll run it up to my friendly neighbourhood mechanic to tune it, fit new rubber and anything else it needs whilst I am away and I am planning to race it in October! Cannot wait! First photo is how it looked when I got it. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack #2strokesrule #twostrokepipe #bellmoto3 #moto3

Hated the washers I was using to hold the tank on, so knocked this up in 5 minutes. Not really necessary and you can barely see it when the seat is on. But I know it is there. Oh and yep, I dropped the tank 😱 #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #vintageflattrack #2strokesrule #twostrokepipe

IT LIVES! Quick start up with the home made pipe on it. Still more to do this weekend and planning to have a quick ride on Sunday! #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack #2strokesrule

Holy Crap! I might actually be able to do this! Rolled up, tack it together and do some final shaping and then weld it up! #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

A pretty crappy photo. But patterning out the down pipe. Will cut it out, roll it up, weld it up and see what I end up with. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

Bits and pieces from a Sunday a few years ago when we decided this seemed like a fun idea. And it was! This was the first time I did the #firejump on my #yz250. We eventually pushed the ramp out to about 25 feet and the flat landing to 52 feet, which was my best distance. #motosycho577 #sundayfunday #stupidstunts #stunts #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #bikestunts

Dodgy ramp? - Check. Dam wall in the back paddock to land on? - Check . What could possibly go wrong? #yz250 #1985yz250 #vintagemotocross #vmx #vintagebike #1985yz250 #motosycho577 #dodgyjump

Holy Crap it runs!! I built something and it actually runs! I am so stupidly happy at the moment! Still needs a pipe and finishing off but it runs!! #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

Yep, the forks need rebuilding and are leaking like sieves. Still need to make a down pipe for it plus a heap of little things to finish. But it looks like a bike again. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

Getting organised for a joust next weekend but got to slip the stator on, sort out some wiring and get the new #mikunioz #mikuni carby on. Managed to squeeze the larger carby into the original boot. #dt400 #vintagebike #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

Holy Crap! The motor is back in the frame! The whole bike will go back together now. I'll ride it for a couple of meets and then the motor will come back out for some work, get cleaned up, repainted etc.. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft

Working on the bikes, getting them ready for racing is an obsession! A glorious obsession! All I think about is what needs to be done next. What parts I need to fix, make or order. Looking forward to racing at the Gloucester TT in 2 weeks. #yz250 #1985yz250 #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms #vintageflattrack

Frame, swingarm, triple tree and forks painted and cleared. Swingarm and rear suspension back in permanently! Just a few more things to do and the motor can go back in! Cannot wait to ride it! #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft #motonecustoms

This will make more sense when I get the 3mm aluminium sheet next weekend to rivet over the big square hole πŸ˜€ #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft

Done for the day. Extended the subframe to give the rear of the seat some support and made the brackets for the front number plate. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx #gofastturnleft

Ok. This is much neater and works so much better. I just need to grab another rose joint tomorrow and weld the top arm and it is done. I ended up making the brake arm from scratch. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx

This is where I was up to yesterday. Made the alloy section and the brake pedal from scratch. I've decided to remake the brake pedal as I have changed where I need to mount the rose joint. #dt400 #vintagebike #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577 #vmx

Made a foot peg extender for the right hand side. Used the splined piece from an original foot peg, added some mounts for the alloy pieces. Cut off the threaded section and drilled and tapped. Hopefully you can see how it works. Just waiting on alloy pegs and then drill some speed holes. I'll have to make a custom brake pedal next. #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577

Put it back together so I can work out side panels and foot peg mounts and a few other things that need to be done. Stupidly happy with it. #dirttrack #flattrack #flattrackracing #vintagemotocross #vmx #dirtbike #caferacer #caferacers #racebike #2stroke #nepeandirttrack #nepeanraceway #motosycho577 #dt400 #bikelife

Having a play with some cardboard before I cut the aluminium sheet for the number plates. I'll probably trim this down a little bit . #dt400 #dirttrack #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #stocksucks #gofast #turnleft #motosycho577

I love it when a plan comes together! Picked up another #dt400 yesterday. This one has an even better motor and it's on the standard bore! So this motor will be going into my modified frame and I will run it whilst I get the other motor rebuilt and hotted up. Back on track to have this ready for #sundayslide #jerkyls #thejerkyls in April. #vintagemotocross #dirttrackracing #flattrack #oldbikes #yamahaflattrack #yamaha #2stroke #caferacer #caferacers #bikelife #motorcycle #dirttrack #heavenvmx #nepeandirttrack #nepeanraceway #motosycho577

From memory this was my first run at the #firejump on the #yz250. Not a lot of flame in this one. Have a look through my photos for the better flame pics. #bikelife #bikersofinstagram #livetoride #bikestunts #sharkleathers #motosycho577
