    Default COSMETIC REBUILD: Yamaha RX100 1986 (now engine rebuilt)

    I made a couple of posts on the ownership thread. I was waiting for the bike to be complete to start a new thread. I took delivery of the bike just a little while ago.

    Here are few pictures. To avoid the hassles of posting high resolution pics, I am attaching mobile cam pics. Its much easier to upload.

    Will write a detailed report a little later. Dead tired now :-(
