Restoration of Yezdi Classic II
 
Hi all

I took a yezdi classic II and started restoring its to its orginal mint condition.

Inital problems faced :-
  • 4 th gear slipping
  • Lamby Carb
  • No front brake
  • Engine sound high. Cylinder and piston needs to replace or rebore
  • Seat gone
  • Speedometer not working
  • Gear selector needs to be changed as sometime gear was not fully falling into its place

Congrats muni phantom,

Your Yezdi looks like in running condition.
I mean almost nil rust; its rear tyre is in good condition.
I must say that you have got a gem
What’s the year of manufacturing .How much did you paid for it
All the best wishes for restoration.
