This restored Yamaha RX 100 has a couple of modifications like silver finished alloy wheels and a new black finished exhaust for a modern look
We have already featured a couple of restored Yamaha RX 100 earlier and this trend is becoming more popular these days as we have stumbled upon this RX 100 from 1998, which has been restored by the owner of Ravi Yamaha dealership in Kanker, Chattisgarh. The restored RX 100 doesn’t look like an old model as the perfection is simply amazing.
Almost all the elements on this RX 100 are original and he made some minor modifications to make it better. The restored RX 100 is finished in a matte silver finish, which is slightly different from the grey Yamaha offered. The stock headlamp, indicators, tail lamps and even the seat is the same from the original RX 100.
The Yamaha and RX100 badges on the fuel tank and side panels have been retained. The instrument cluster is the same unit with a speedometer in the middle and indicators on either side. The engine cover looks like brand new and it has the Yamaha logo, while the chain cover is finished in black colour.
The restored RX 100 gets a chrome finished grab rail and it extends to the rear suspension. The crash guard Ravi Yamaha added on the RX 100 is not the original one and it looks massive on the bike. The handlebar appears to be taken from another bike, but it doesn’t look out of place as the design is similar to the original one.
The modification on the restored RX 100 includes silver finished alloy wheels along with the black finished exhaust. The tyres are retained from the stock model with 18-inch wheels at front and rear. The dealership hasn’t made any changes for the engine as it is the same 98 cc, 2-stroke air-cooled single-cylinder engine.
This engine puts out 11 bhp of power at 7,500 rpm and 10.39 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This engine is mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The braking duties are done by 130 mm drum brakes at the front and rear. The RX 100 come with telescopic forks at the front and swing arm with 5 adjustable positions for the rear. The total cost and time taken for restoration are not yet revealed.
