Yamaha Xt225 Serow – Spares, Repairs Or Restoration

1990 Yamaha XT225 Serow for spares or repairs. Or an easy full restoration project if you have a workshop and a few hours free? Pics show the condition pretty well. Poor old thing has been lurking at the back of the garage for a few years since I last used it for commuting. Was planning on tidying it up myself at some point, but now need the space so it’ll have to go. I haven’t tried to start it as the battery is dead and I can’t open the fuel cap – just corrosion in the lock mechanism I’d imagine as I can’t turn the cap lock key. Ignition and helmet lock work fine on the key and the bike was running well when parked up. I Have blasted some WD40 in the fuel cap to hopefully work its magic. It looks like the tank may have a couple of pin holes in the bottom too though and the paint has bubbled in places (see pics). Other obvious issues being that the rear tyre isn’t holding air and the front brake has lost pressure. The seat cover has a small rip and there is the expected surface rust as pictured. Other than that most parts look usable/restorable. Please examine the pics closely to satisfy yourself if interested though of courseRecorded mileage is very low at 5,800 kms. I can’t guarantee this as I have only owned the bike since 2005, but it seems to match with the MOTs I have. Bike was imported in 2000 according to the dating certificate.I think that about covers it. It’s an old bike, but the Serow is a classic of its type and though I’m selling as spares or repairs it really wants restoring to it’s former glory I reckon.    10% deposit payable within 24 hours by winning bidder with the balance payable by cash or balance transfer upon collection please.Cheers!
