To try and restore the SRV to like new condition for our vintage rides. Also to relive some of the fun times I used to experience with the SRV.
Had a SRV when I was much younger and really enjoyed the looks, power and reliability of the SRV. It never let me down and also had a buddy that had just picked up a 1982 Yamaha SS. He wanted to ride in a few vintage rides so I started looking for a sled.
As I started the restore of the SRV I decided to replace all hardware possible with stainless steel, replaced all bearings with heavy duty versions with waterproof grease.
I believe I accomplished my goal of restoring my SRV to like new condition with the upgrade of all hardware with SS and complete restoration of the complete stock suspension. Also replaced wood base of seat with PVC so it would never rot again
Everyone that had seen it is impressed with how nice it turned out. Everyone says it looks like it just came off the showroom floor. I was very pleased
