1983 Ya­m­agamma

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - In Your Shed -

Owner: Mike Jef­fer­son, Ed­in­burgh Owned for: six years So far: built up from frame dis­cov­ered hid­den be­hind sum­mer­house What’s next? new cases and an oil pump

My Ya­m­agamma all started with a frame that was lan­guish­ing be­hind a sum­mer­house at the bot­tom of the gar­den. My wife said, “Why don’t you build some­thing with it, use up some of the stuff you have ly­ing about?” So I did. It’s a MK1 Gamma frame, swingarm and tank, wheels are a 2MA TZR rear (the big­gest I could get in the swingarm), front end is a mix of 4DL and SZR660. Shock is Öh­lins from an RRT ’Blade with a lighter spring. The mo­tor is a 4L1 250.

Amaz­ing what can be done with stuff ly­ing around in the gar­den
