Did you Race it ?
I raced it at Coffs Harbour, Dorrigo and Grafton.

What made you decide to do a Restoration?

I blew the engine big time, and Dad was restoring his 82 RM250z
I suppose i got the Bug.

How Long did the resto take?
About a Year In between helping Dad on the house.

How much did it cost ?
I don’t know we lost count at 900.

What was done?
The frame and swing arm was powder coated, engine rebuilt with new conrod and bearings, Viton Seals , 316 stainless Allen head bolts where possible. Re built the front and rear shocks. And Many hours on the buffing machine.
