So I'm going to "Canada's largest motorcycle scrapyard" tomorrow to look for a few bit.
Mainly a new tank of the xt225/350 variety. Maybe a ,watching seat Pam for a graph.
Also hoping to grab a longer rear brake arm off a xt350 or similair.
I've called today and he said he has quite a few Yamaha's.
What would you pick off of a pile of old bikes?

as much as I could carry/afford!!!
1991 TW200: Jimbo windshield, oversized foot pegs, quick release seat bolts, Tusk D-Flex hand guards, Yamaha luggage rack, Emgo trunk, 2 storage tubes, Bridgestone TW203/204 tires, LED taillight.
Ive got some extra XT parts available if you need a few things. I might have a tank bit it will need paint.
I'd take a measuring tape, some calipers, some tools, a camera, an open mind and a list of everything that bugs you about your bike.
If at all possible I'd take the most important thing, the bike itself. It's a lot easier to tell if that longer shifter or brake arm is in fact gunna work out if you have access to yours. Boneyards usually won't let you return things and once you've bought it, it's yourn.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
May consider looking for some forks, headlights, gas tanks, pegs, skidplates, etc...

Where is this place? I find scrap yards so hard to come by nowadays in my neck of the woods. If I were you Id try and pick up a second engine, just to rebuild and have as a spare. Dunno, kinda like the idea of doing something like.
A big motorcycle junkyard sounds like a pretty fun place to me, happy hunting Braden!
