Let’s tell you a little about the history of our Hot Burrita (Yamaha SR 250).

Everything started in practically a box, in which it was stored once the insignificant price for which we obtained it was paid.

Once the engine of the Yamaha SR 250 was opened, we realized what the reason for its low price was. Speaking with the previous owner, he told us that the motorcycle had been left outdoors under some vineyards in the Do Salnés area.

Everything started in practically a box, in which it was stored once the insignificant price for which we obtained it was paid.

Once the engine of the Yamaha SR 250 was opened, we realized what the reason for its low price was. Speaking with the previous owner, he told us that the motorcycle had been left outdoors under some vineyards in the Do Salnés area.
The engine had to be almost completely rebuilt. The rest of the bike was dismantled each and every one of its pieces to clean, paint, etc ..

We put radial in several parts of the chassis, among others, the rear overhang of the seat and part of the subframe to be able to raise it of suspension travel in the rear part.

The seat was made to measure of the new support, with a high density foam and upholstered with black suede, using the inner part of the piece for the outside of the seat.

The handlebar belongs to a Famel, a Portuguese motorcycle brand very popular in the 60s, 70s and even 80s. Yes, those two-stroke small-displacement motorcycles that sailed the roads of a neighboring country, with normally more cargo and passengers as allowed.

The wheels are a Coker Firestone ANS Military, are a reproduction of the Firestone ANS, which was the model of tires that mounted the WLA military motorcycle models. Continuing on this line, a round front bulb with metallic protection was placed on it. Also very characteristic of the motorcycles of that time.

The deposit, we kept the original but with an oxide finish. Was submerged for two weeks in seawater, once outside, we stopped the oxidation process with matt varnish, because if we let it continue, right now I think there would be no deposit.

As for the electrical part, it has been simplified to the maximum and the wiring was hidden inside the chassis. The ignition key was also replaced, its original place was on the handlebar and now it is under the seat.
