Talking 1997 cr125 winter project

So iv bean working on this bike for about 2 months, almost at the point of the final rebuild, did a total chemical wash down to the metal using keayton or what ever its called.

-new suspension bearings (wheel, swing arm, fork clamp, shock)
-new plastic (red) with custom stickers
-new front tire
-painted the frame signal light green
-polished the swing arm, but when the bearings were removed the welds snapped so il have to get it reweleded
-new engine gasket on the kick start side
-new brake pads
-new sparkplug
-new wheels spacers
-new handle bars

and am probable forgetting something.....


Day2 in the teardown


the damaged swing arm.....2000lb of presser did this



and this pic was taken 20 minutes ago with the green frame


so what do u think?

Looks good from here. Did you get a new swing arm then?

That doesn't look like a 97 Jug? (No Left Powervalve cover)
Did you swap it out for a 00 or newer
