I am dragging my brothers old Yamaha RD125LC out of storage with the intention of stripping of its 80's sportiness and giving it a brat style conversion.
(Example image of base bike)
Unlike the original 70's Yamaha this model is likely to have a more sporty frame and comes with upside down forks.
Can any of the knowledgable members on here give me an idea of the potential issues and limitations faced with changing a bike like this into a cafe racer/ brat ?
There does not seem to be a great deal of builds from the Yamaha RD125 so it is hard to find examples that I can follow, although I like the challenge of doing something new.
