Is the cranked kickstart from an LC ?

Okay.
The hangers are from a Yamaha YZF 125 (modified).
At the top point I welded a little metal plate (4-5mm thick) on the frame and cut a thred in there. You also can put a tapped bushing in, if you drill a bigger hole in the brace.

And yes the kickstarter is from an 350YPVS.

The fender is a glass fiber reinforced plastic part made by a Yamaha dealer round the corner (Germany).

Iam still looking for the seat/fairing - where do you buy it? And is the subframe Stock or modded to fit the seat?
