    Thumbs up down with pillion on everything

    example:


    … passenger is sitting totally behind the rear axle, common sense tells you what that will do for stability and increasing the chance of that pretty young thing getting all scared up. Need I say more ?:I


    Now can we talk about how you would prep a bike like that for dirt action, and cash in on the actual collectable bits ?:I

    The more the merrier and I bet that's a 70.

    I feel some can't grasp the idea that I want to restore and use because I want to restore and use. I can't stand 3 things on cafe bikes 1) bar end mirrors 2) flush mount turn signals and 3) that stupid brake light/license plate holder always mounted on the lower left side of bikes. To me its cheap and ugly but I bet over half of everyone on this forum has all 3 on their machines. I say to each their own and if you desire all 3 on your machine do it proudly and tastefully.

    Me and my son picked this up off CL for $300. We plan on restoring it to its full glory and use it as a pit bike/rv bike/7-11 run bike/just dorking out bike. I always purchase a vehicle with proper title, registration, non-op, etc. we live in California and you can really hump yourself on registration fees if not careful. I read on this forum a lot of folks purchasing real big non running projects....semi complete....with a bill of sale. That is definately not ideal...... especially not to someone new. This runs surprisingly well and is from what I can tell...complete. Riding off road gave me that "I just got my first new motorcycle feel." Remember our first and some our first bikes? Memory lane.
    If you want the girl to hold on to you, you need to lose the chicken strap :|

    2 ways to proceed:
    1 make it a dirt bike real fast and use it.
    2 make it street legal and mint which will take like forever :/ as the hyper clear photos reveal extensive work and bits needed to make this one mint.




    The right shaped Aluminum shovel can make an awesome bash plate for these,
    and the foot pegs, which are trashed on this one, are attached to a bracket that weighs a ton and is fitted with bad pegs to start with.
    Levers are missing ball ends, that's illegal for certification if it's being correctly scrutinized, … you can't even run levers like that in any competition.

    The chain adjusters are a weak point, if your rear axle is not tight enough, they will not be strong enough to hold the axle in place, they'll snap and need to be re-welded. Keep the axle tight.
    … tires look like stock original :/ put full knobbies on it or it will be useless in dirt as well as useless on the road.

    front forks need to come completely apart and be made nice again, steering head bearing will consist of a hand full of loose rusty balls.

    … when you are cleaning up the brake shoes, because replacement will be uber difficult. You can improve their performance with some careful fitting & modifications :I
    swing-arm bushing will be trash and the wheel bearings are so cheap and easy to source, you should just replace them.

    Or the 3rd way

    3) make it a dirt bike, make it street legal and make it as mint as I can with I want to do and spend. Remember this will be used for store runs, my rv bike and for off road. Off road for this would be used primarily on my private land just for fun as we have other toys strictly for off road. Also to relive youth. I understand it's capabilities.

    You might be correct with the time frame for completion as I am somewhat off and on but when I am on and with my son's help...........it wouldn't be long.

    I started at age 10. I can relate to what he would have the most fun doing trust me, he won't like the time frame and you won't want him hurting it. Plus it's a lousy street bike :| My first bike on the road was a Suzuki TC90 … on my 16th. birthday I quickly upgraded to a TS185 and that was Minimal for street imho, and I'm a tiny guy.


    … I had to learn them on my own, he's a lucky kid :I is a great project either way
