Picked this up for $70 with title. Was previously chopped and some parts were sold along the way so it’s gonna be an intensive build/restore.
First set of pictures is the bike in the condition it came in. Next set is cracking open the calipers and controls for a deep clean and rebuild.
Basically working front to back on this project. The plan is to restore as much as I can of the bike and then fab additional components and buy what I can’t make. Not gonna be restoring it to the original condition or focused on buying oem only parts, cause the immediate goal is to make it operational. Deciding on the aesthetics is secondary for me.
Oh definitely. Had my niece helping me do a full rebuild of the calipers today, replaced all seals and boots, new pistons and pads etc.
Stripped down the calipers bare and spent two days cleaning everything in between jobs.
Im gonna redo all the internals on the controls tomorrow (I have lots of electrical and switch components around from other jobs/projects) so no cost to me to replace and wire all the internals and make the housing look brand new. Got the little one learning electrical work too.
