Yamaha Vmax restoration Part 6 (Wheels and Swingarm):

Tyres refitted, balanced and new 90° tyre valves were used.

Discs were refitted with new bolts and I fitted new wheel bearings and dust seals.

Front wheel is now on and the frame is now self-supporting on the centre stand.

Swingarm was fitted using new bearings and dust seals. Right shock is now on, but the left will have to wait until the final drive is ready to go on.

I got the final drive back from the painters and it was a good colour match with the swingarm. It's a little tricky on your own to align the universal joint to accept the driveshaft. Left side shock fitted which I only needed to clean up a little.
