1975 Yamaha 433 GPX

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To restore the sled to “show” condition (better than new)
and be able to trail ride it.

What motivated you to start your project?

My buddy rebuilt a “78 SRX. I wanted to something close only different. I love to take something old and make it new again.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

The sled was a total mess. The engine was in pieces laying in the belly pan with lots of squirrel poop. The crank was wrapped in plastic (thank goodness)
The track was bad so I replaced it with a track off of a 1976 Exciter. I also had to change the drive shaft to match, as the Exciter was a internal drive.

What are you most proud of?

The quality of the complete build. Plus, after rebuilding the motor and clutches and switching the carbs to Mikuni, it runs great!

What do other people say about your sled?

All are very impressed. Polishing the tunnel really sets it off.
