Sam Simmons sends in this pair of beauties. A pair of hopped up Yamaha BW (Big Wheel) 80’s.

Hope you’re doing well. Excellent ( new) site (as usual!!). I recently
redid a couple of Yamaha BW-80’s,so here are a few pictures for you…
Surprisingly,both BW’s were still in the hands of their original
owners,one in MO,the other in IL.
Both were in good overall condition,but pretty tired in the ‘Engine Dept’
. I ‘stretched’ the suspension on mine,while my wife’s is stock. Once the
exhaust and intake systems are de-restricted,carb’s rejetted,these
little shits fly…almost 50 mph.
They’re great little bikes for swap meet transportation,and perfect for
inexperienced trail riders.
Holy Smokes! 50mph on these must be a hoot!
I like the Kenny Roberts colors!
Sitting Pretty! Some nice clearance there!
How to raise em up!
Very Nice work!
The before pic!
