    I have been working on this for about 4 months. Before that it sat for 10 years. My friend was going to bring it back to life but his ADD is worse than mine.

    Its an 82 Yamaha XZ550 (Vision)
    They only made this for two years so finding parts is a bit of a pain.

    So here it goes.
    What I started with. This is actually a while after I got the bike. Should have documented a little better.


    What it looks like now. Also note the clean garage. ;D
    Its not teh greatest but it runs
