    Both legs

    Those were originally for 1993 SX Exciter, but by little modification they went in.

    I went to the firm that makes decals, templates etc. and took original seat cover with me. Then i made the paint and used RAL3013 colorcode. The paint is Sikkens Autobase Plus (car paint) with elast-o-actif and hardener and was made in spraycan. You have to use it within few days (beacuse the hardener). Therefore that text outlast longer.

    I own the paintshop, so i also made the hood and sidepanels paint too and sprayed it myself. It took few moments to match it perfectly.

    How scarce are Yamahas there? Not a whole lot of them where I'm located. Around here, there known as the Chrysler Imperials of the snowmobile world.
    BTW ... Chrysler Imperials are not allowed in demolition derbys because they are built like a brick sh!thouse and never lose a derby.

    Actually you can find these rather common in here and especially in Sweden. Obviously they are in terrible condition and need love and care to get them running

    Today was shakedown for our annual vintagesafari (yes, in my opinion this is vintage ). We drive approx. 300-400 kilometers around wilderness. All sleds must be year 1995 or older.
