1986 Yamaha SRX-6
Owner: George Boardman, Virginia
COMMENTS: This 1-year, kick-start model bike was initially dissembled several years ago by the customer. While he had the bike, he painstakingly obtained several hundred genuine, NOS parts. The bike & parts were brought to us early in 2009. We continued the disassembly to the bare frame, painted the frame & engine, polished covers, and replaced many, many parts. We also cleaned & sealed the gasoline tank, added new tires, adjusted the valves & installed new clutch plates, hand buffed & waxed the tank & fenders, and replaced the left handlebar/clip-on because we discovered a potentially hazardous hairline crack. The restoration took 43 hours of labor.
The SRX-6 (thought not this particular bike) was the 1st bike our customer purchased new & rode all over New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine on one-day and weekend trips. Our customer has enjoyed many different bikes but has owned 4 SRX-6's and even a SRX 250 his wife used as a learner/starter bike. His beloved SRX even helped save an old pick-up truck on the NJ turnpike with alternator issues.
Our customer was pleased we, like him, ignored no details on the bike and made it a stunning example of an SRX-6. A bike that turns heads on the road and gets attention at every stop.
From an email by Mr. Boardman sent March 4, 2011: I let EVERYBODY know who did the excellent work on my SRX. If anyone ever wants to see some examples of your work close-up or hear from me personally - It would be my pleasure! You guys are the BEST!! George
