TOPIC: Kyosho YZ250

Kyosho YZ250 1 month 4 weeks ago #55374

Hi all, it’s been some time since I posted and I always endeavour to contribute more, I hopefully have a couple of treats for you.

Here’s the first which I have recently discovered and kind of fallen in love with.

Before the details I want to say a HUGE thank you to Sander, whom without I would have these. He helped me through the purchases and even found me the spares lot for a very reasonable price, thank you Sander.

Although not comeplete I wanted to get my hands on one of these and see what the looked and felt like in person, and I was not disappointed. It’s much larger than expected and dwarfs my Eleck riders.

It’s practically all metal and looks extremely realistic.

I’ve contacted a guy on eBay who was able to source some body spares for me, so I really look forward to see them fitting and almost complete.

For now I hope you enjoy what I have so far and ofcourse if anyone has anything from a part to a complete bike, please give me a shout.

Very cool, I'll definitely look forward to this restoration :)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Most of it 95%, i was allowed to fondle the spare parts, metal pipes and alloy parts even the wheels are full metal very cool.
Only synthetic bits are fueltank, saddle and tires.

Quite scary when I think of the scale on this project, looks very challenging. I hope to work on it throughout this year, little bit here and there while doing other things. Really should get back on to the Kyosho Chevy though :whistle:

Another little update and a delayed thank you to Sander again.

A good few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge after I got the previously pictures YZ250, I bought one available on eBay and Sander again helped me pay the seller.

I've been so busy that it took me a little while to get a closer look after the original un-boxing. This one is a complete (i think) elec version that just needs a little cleaning up. It really was critical to get a build complete one (thats what I tell my wife) so that I can compare when working on the petrol version I have.

Following that I spoke to a really nice UK ebayer that had a few parts which I scooped up and this NIB rider. I cannot get over how big this stuff is!
