As of now will get the bike to normal commuting conditions, wait till the South West Monsoons are over & then start it on a slow pace.

    What's your say Karthik..?
    Yes i feel thats a good idea. I would like to suggest for the painting scheme though, maybe try the "Creamy White" or "Blue", which were launched in very limited numbers on 4-speed RX-Z. The blue especially is a very rare sight & looks very appealing.

    Also any reason why you have not opted for disc setup on your 135 5-speed?

    Very True Karthik, the Inspiration for White was purely based on ur creation TN-38-XX-XXXX that you've showcased in another forum. As i have original factory painted panels in Four speed Maroon with Stickers, deciding whether i should really go with it or buy one more set & paint it the 4S Blue.....

    P.S. That White 4S of ur's was Mind Blowing to look at, to be frank that's my wallpaper even.

    Congrats Ram! Also all the very best for the 'Z' rebuild. What can I say to a die-hard 2T Yamaha fanboy?!?!? Keep posting on all the progress of this restoration process. I would expect it to be detailed unlike mine.

    Thank you Sri, Seriously I'm stammering & searching for words to Thank you for the help rendered. Anyways, there's a TREAT when you visit Coimbatore. A Visual Treat of the 4S Z & 5S.

    Here's what happened:

    Sri: Calls me up...
    Me: I Hung up as I'm in mu Uncles condolence..
    Me: Send him a msg, & quickly Sri acknowledges..

    A Week passes by and no news & i still never knew why Sri called me up...

    Sri: Calls me...
    Me: What's up Sri..
    Sri: I've got a mouthwatering Proposal for you...
    Me: Tell me Sri, what's it about?
    Sri: A 4S Stock RXZ is up for sale & would you be interested...?
    Me: Sri, I might really be..but Home minister has to acknowledge the same, so gimme a day's time
    Sri: Ok, let me know. If not I'll pick it up.

    As Home ministry is important part to a married man, take wifey out to all the Chinese Restaurants she prefers & pump in more of fries, Lung Fung Soups & other assortments that i even don't know the name of... I slowly pass the proposal to wifey, for a moment she gazed at me like an Arctic monkey acting crazy over the name RXZ..finally agrees to the proposal. There i go...

    Phone calls again...8:30 P.M on a night

    Me: Sri, I'll pick it up...
    Sri: Good good. Wait a minute..
    Me: Yes, Sri, even Wifey agreed to it
    Sri: Puts a concall to Goutham (Owner).
    Gowtham (owner): Conveys what's there & what's not with the bike.
    Me: Thinking about the genuineness he had in his words, agree to pick it up without seeing the bike.
    Goutham: Sends me the link of the bike's Pic
    Me: Don't worry about the pic Goutham. I'll transfer the money to your acc no.

    ...DEAL CLOSED...then & there.

    Sri: Wishes me good luck
    Goutham: Thanks me..
    Me: Amazed by these two guys, running out of words, i thank both of them & hang up the call in mere amusement


    Three weeks passes by that had kept Goutham & Sri busy with a lot of work & finally after three weeks of excitement, my baby boy arrived today to Coimbatore. Although I was stuck at office because of a concall & still I'am, my colleague went to collect him. It's 10.05 P.M now & i'm leaving to see him for the first time

    Enjoy..for now. More to come soon....

    Ram - Wonderful. Now that it reached CBE and that too a passionate guy, what else to worry about? Take a good look and start your restoration plan. All the best !

    You have put every word of phone conversation in that role play. Amazing!

    My first post here, after ~3 years of joining... mostly because of the 2 fine gentlemen I got acquainted with due to this deal.

    I had picked up this bike with the only intention of restoring it to its original glory from a colleague of mine, but just couldn't dedicate the time. Since the time it came home, I had set it aside & stored it. I've probably ridden it for around 2kms (YUP!)... I was hoping that a parked bike will drive me harder to start the restoration. Unfortunately, it was never meant to be. I decided to let go off this bike & I was determined that it will be sold only to someone who understands the machine and more importantly do justice to it.

    I had initially worked out a deal with Karthik & Chetan, however that unfortunately didn't go through for various (personal) reasons.

    & that's when Ram came along.
