Lars Zieger from Germany is one of those guys with 2 right or golden hands (and a huge lathe).
Lars built himself with help of his Dad this racer from partly raw material!On the background you see his great assortment of tools and the huge lathe he has at his disposal. Even the wheelhubs were turned from solid material! Absolutely stunning workmanship! He was helped greatly by his father Gerd who also liked the project apparently very much. The bike was built "by head" as no direct sample machine was available, even more amazing!
Originally Lars started with Yamaha 1973 RD250 parts, like frame and engine.
Can you imagine all that work, making all the small parts as well yourself.
The home-made mufflers are nicely made and properly attached to the frame.
The front hub was made from a solid billet of aluminium.
After an unbelievable amount of work the hub and rim began to look like a proper racing wheel.
The brake plate is also another master piece from the Zieger Gerd/Lars team!
For the brake plate, all the camshafts and levers were (of course) made out of solid material.
They even went so far to make their own sprockets!
The racing mufflers must have been "a piece of cake" for these 2 men!
Here Gerd (I think it is him) attaches the screen to the also self-made cowling.
And the finishing touch is of course a fully engraved fuel tank cap, nicer than Yamaha ever made themselves.
