    Default Restoring my dad's Yamaha 1984 80cc

    Assalam u Alekum everyone
    this is my first thread on PakWheels.
    My dad bought this yamaha 80cc back in 1984.since then, the bike was used to the extreme as it was the only transport in the family. during the 1990s, Allah blessed us with a car and by 2006, my dad officially stopped using the bike. since then, its been standing in our backyard. i recently returned from abroad and am really interested in restoring it to its original condition. its frame is in original color, tanks and sides were painted once around 1998 but have faded again, front and back lights are original (believe it or not) even though the bike was doing around a 100kms/day upto its disuse. its going to leave for the workshop in a day or two.
    Things that i want to get done
    1. an engine overhaul with genuine yamaha parts
    2. complete paint job.
    3. new wiring, new battery
    4. chrome plating and nickel paint where ever needed.
    5. all other accessories that originally came with it
    6.whatever i can think off without overdoing anything

    Suggestions and positive criticism are highly welcome. guys, do help me out on this one. i know its not a very complicated task but i dont want to mess up on this one. JazakAllah
    here are some picks after i dusted the bike and got its tires running

    salaam.believe me guys, whereever i go with the bike...be it the market place, or masjid or anywhere, EVERYONE watches it with eyes wide open. its become a head turner of its own kind, n ive decided that InshaAllah im going to take very good care of it in the future. i myself find it hard to remove my gaze from the bike at times.
    @umer009.....thanx alot for your support and appreciation
    @babisboss......thanx. as far as the parts r concerned, some parts were available and for some, we had to search the whole market. for instance, some engine parts were hard to find but electric stuff was easily available. overall, it wasnt that hard for the sticker, the sticker-guy drew it with paint. he took pictures of the old one before it was removed by the denter, then he drew an exact replica after the paint job. he took a whole day and charged me Rs.400 i guess.

    aaaammmmm.....plz help me here, i just explained how i'll get the compound polish after a week.is that ok? should i even get one at all? or leave the fresh paint as it is?
    Hmmm,
    A gap of 1 week sounds good.
    You should go for the compound after 1 or even 2 weeks.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    @ dr.omair
    Congrats brother!! i have been a silent admirer of ur efforts and ur thread! Awesome and quality work done!! Hope now this effort pays u back and nothing wud need attention again 4 sumtime now...

    Well u said tht the bike was over heating and u had to stop it on every signal!! Dude i sense some serious troble here bdw!! Seems like the bore hasnt been done properly! Piston is getting rubbed with the cylinder walls and its heating up!! If the bore wud hav been proper and piston wud have been able to move freely, then there wud have been no such problem... id recommend u to take extra care of ur bike, go as slow as possible and donot let the engine seize!! use extra mobil oil... in the petrol tank 4 added lubricatrion. also consult ur mechanic and tell him about the heating problem... if the bore is not proper and the piston gets scracthed then u ill have to get a new piston sadly.. so t.c.

    Regards. Umer

    @imtheman_85..... thanx alot man for appreciating
    @automotorsportlover(umer-the silent admirer ) first and foremost, thanx alot for admiring the project. the overheating problem was there just the first day. it probably (im not sure) happened coz the engine hadnt been checked by the mechanic to his confidence but i had brot back the bike home in a hurry coz i was angry over him for delaying the job. since then, ive been running the bike normally (never going over 40km/h, adding oil to the tank, keeping the engine running in the garage for a while etc etc) and the engine's been totally fine after all. so i guess, the initial overheating mite've been some temporary issue which got over on its own. but the bike will still go to the mechanic this week and i'll tell him about the issue. thanx once again

    well if u rebuild a engine for a two stroke it heats up initially due to tight rough cylinder walls but as the piston gets its self polished it vanishes away, and use ur original oil pump for mixing of oil, dont put it in the tank as its not the recommended procedure

    @satti8...thanx
    @umer009......i guess that explains y the engine was over heating the first day i took the bike out. its been fine since, though i dont drive my bike for more than 3 kms straight without giving a few seconds rest. regarding adding oil to the tank, i think this is debatable. im not an expert but ive ask alot of professionals who own 2-strokes and every1 has a different opinion. some say u shud add Rs.5 oil with every litre of petrol. others recommend adding oil once in a while, and some are totally against adding the tiniest bit of oil to the tank- and every1 has a convincing reason too. its really confusing

    u got my point a little wrong , what im saying is that if u have seperate oil tank for the mobileoil at the right side (right tappa ) then use it for adding the oil up, but if ur bike doesnt have that option than use the original tank to mix with oil,
    but never stop adding oil or u will end up with a cease piston

    @imranbhatti.....thanx alot. ive read some random posts here and seen your comments too. i must say ur one real technical person and im flattered having u comment on my restoration thread....thanx once again
    @nasir01.....thankyou sir, highly appreciate your comments
    @ekdrifter.....tahnx and all the best for your restoration...yaar u have to make some time for these things. i myself drive a car regularly, and hardly ever use this bike- even after its restoration. but i really wanted to give it wat it deserved after so many years of service and loyalty, and i guess u should make up your mind and go for it
    @umer009......we both misunderstood each other. this bike has a side tank for oil, and that part is alwez working. wats disputed is adding a little ADDITIONAL oil to the main tank along with petrol. personally, i dont c any reason y this should be done coz the yamaha team wudve been sensible enuf to design it in a way that it wudve required no extra oil. but mechanics here recommend doing so....so here u go.............

    Restored Yamaha 80cc 1972

    This motorcycle was restored by many including the late Prof Masood of UET Lahore and it is still in working condition. Most of the parts are still genuine.
