It has been slow going as parts are really beginning to dry up on the ground now.

Finally managed to source a an mid 1980's race bike YZR clutch lever. It is from a 250, but as close as I am going to get for now.

Well, for the OW81 project I lost the bid for YZR500 engine. My final offer was $28,000 but the seller accepted an offer of $35,000.

When I lost that I was a little dejected about the progress of this project - that was probably the last and only chance to get a pre-1988 engine in zero mile condition. That was a complete pre-season test and prototype engine. Including carbs and electronics.

Then recently I made contact with a custom fabricator in Japan that shares my passion for the OW76 through OW81 bikes and I think the outcome will be a very replication of the OW81 frame and swing arm. This gent has the ability to perform magic with aluminium.

This of course leaves the little issue of an engine. For that I am not to sure. The good news is that the gent that outbid me for the prototype motor is busy having replica cases made in aluminum so I might still have a way to get a close replica YZR500 engine.
