Well...for anyone still wondering about this bike...YES NEW UPDATES lol

So been a long time but I got some things done! As far as the resto part it's basically done, now it's time to get it functional.

I popped into the dealer the other day and got a few parts ( that had been sitting there since last year!! ). I also was surprised that they had the brake master cylinder Pistons right there in stock-snatched those NOS parts up quick!!

So I got the brakes finished, crossed my fingers that thy didn't leak and voila all good to go!

I also removed the wire loom and will get that soldered together and wind up the loom. That takes care of the electrics for now.

I also got the speedo ( which I found at an absolute BARGAIN-these things are worth well over $350!! ). So that is mocked up, although I need to paint the bracket ( or send it in with some parts for plating )....

Here is the speedo...

There's still the exhaust to do, I thought I had the header-muffler gasket but alas I forgot that too!!!

I fitted ( well attempted ) the throttle cable only to find the one is too short I think it's the push cable....

Great job you done on your resto!

Here's mine from a while back with a few "custom touches". She's a 1985 XR250 RF. Main add-ons are a nos 1985 aluminium swing arm for a 1985 XR600, the speedometer and a pair of nos forks for a 1991 CR125.

So after MANY years on this project I have finally concluded this project ( well the build portion anyway ). I am yet to start it and ride it

I present....











If you'd like to catchup on the build you can search for the entire start to finish document here on the forum.

For those amoung you that have a keen eye for detail you'll notice a few key parts not on the bike.... But I'm happy with this as the final product!

I will be showcasing the bike at the Australian supercross championships in the bike 'museum'/showcase! I'm very excited to showcase my bike at such a large event!

Thanks Val!

I got them off eBay.... But I can't remember the name of the seller. I'll need a new set soon though, these ones are already perishing :/
