You my friend are VERY Talented!! I am stunned at how well this is all looking. I learned about zinc plating through this post. You make my new(ish) bike look OLD!

I can't wait to see more.

Could you tell us how you restored the fuel tank?

Thanks for the talent ;-)

For the tank I already talked about it but I'll tell you again, no problem

1st / water cleaning, dish soap, baking soda and a green scotch brite sponge
2nd / sanding under water with body sandpaper, grain 120, then 254, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 2000, 4000
in 3rd / light heating with a heat gun, just to revive the color and make it shine.

the days pass and the restoration of the motorcycle is still on stand-by, as long as I have not integrated my house and my workshop or I should start work soon.

small reception of the day, the stickers for the radiator fenders and those that will take place on the fork with the old KYB logo.

Good and well cracked, since I sold the footpegs I had taken at the start for the 250 CR.
There will be grip under the boots, they are beautiful and the weight gain is just impressive.
don't worry guys i plan to blunt the tips ;)

All these pieces and parts coming together . . . looking forward to it starting to look like a dirt bike again.

I was figuring you were going to do a full restoration, but seeing some of the modern bling you're throwing at it, we're going to see one healthy-running resto-mod.

Hi everyone, I know it's not a very funny subject since we haven't seen any reassembly of the bike and its progress yet, but I still haven't been able to start working on it, so I continue to receive parts in view of its reassembly, which I hope will stimulate you a little

the result of some small parts for the reassembly of the motorcycle, that I had ordered more than 2 months ago now, I thought that I would never have them, but hey one is missing, I hope that it will be delivered to me shortly.
there are the rear pad springs and the brake hose guides, the centering pads and studs for the installation of the cylinder on the crankcases, the crankshaft key, the spring washer of the clutch nut, the 2 countersunk screws for one of the gearbox bearings ....

I had a few parts to order for my clients' suspensions, I took the opportunity to add 2 small parts for the CR, it will end up as a factory bike if it continues. ..
