For my forks pictured above are 97 or 98 forks. I am not sure since the seller mis-labeled them and I did not discover this until months into my build. It was too late for any recourse. I used I am assuming 96 lower tree. I have several I purchased in-expensively ... more »

For this next post let's cover some of the tools/equipment I used. You will see great results do not necessarily mean expensive tools. The Holy Bible for me when doing a restore. Impossible to do quality work without it. I love it for torque values along

The louvers are silly easy to fit. If you find some 250 ones they will not be cheap. 125 ones are $30 per side new. I can share two ways of modifying them. The first I found somewhere maybe even here. But both utilize the 125 ones.

You already know I love your build my friend. If I came across an early CR 125 that would be the build I would do..A Peak replica. There is something about those early bikes that is very long lasting.

Absolutely gorgeous build. Just looks fantastic. Your images from 2017 do not link and so I have no idea how it looked before. But even still the amount of effort and time/money to get where you are at only a few possess that level of patience. Looks ... more »

I purchased a set of forks/front wheel/caliper and master cylinder from this member. Went way beyond to sell those items to me. Went and bought me a rifle case to ship the forks to me. Since the shipping was more then he quoted me he was going to eat ... more »

Just saw that you asked that question. $165.00 which includes return shipping. For that tank pictured it was the way to go. I know that must have been a load of work. In fact I thought those spots went all the way through. Obviously not. To get from

Matt that was very generous, thanks brother. In that spirit I have my next one lined up I think...

Now that is a challenge. $300.00 for all that goodness. I tipped the seller $20 for bringing it to me from outside my area so I actually have ... more »

I bought two. I love the subtle design but powerful imagery/words. Just goes to show if you are into moto little else needs to be said or shown. Great designs.

Thanks Pgd for dropping in. That's funny on not using much from the donor bike. Thankfully I chose a manufacture and years that were crazy popular. I have total of (3) 95's which have been somewhat easy to locate but of course I traveled for every one

They have something going on with a move or similar. I had a pipe there for over a month and like you was trying to get a response. He/they came through and I received my pipe back. Try their Facebook page and of course leave a message about your question. ... more »

Yes, please show us your vapor cabinet. I am doing this for sure I’m just not sure if I buy one already done or turn mine HF bead blast cabinet into one. Absolutely top tier restore work my friend. Excellent. More pics would be nice of the process. I ... more »

So after doing that 95 I was initially burned out on taking before pictures and what not. When you see sudden transformations of restores from members and limited imagery leading up I can totally understand. As I got further in on the 92 and began to

Great work Maxx. Impressive your patience and attention to the very small stuff. I am super interested in how you used the heat gun to bring the shine to the tank. I am trying to get the shine back on a airbox. I believe the sanding is all done. Any ... more »

I have been grabbing images of steel framed CRs that I felt had certain elements to a unique look. I have a few of these bikes so I was doing this if I wanted to change up a look. I have quite a few let me know if you want me to post them here in your ... more »

Mitch when I switched over to newer front ends I modified the lower tree stops. I did not want to modify the frame but that would have been easier. I kind of totally guessed on how much to remove. My 95 modified ones do not allow my fork tubes to hit

Thanks for the consideration Brian. I am actually quite a way into this restore. I ended up replacing the sub-frame with another used one I had to fix and he also had a used silencer I purchased and restored. Yes the forks were shot. I didn’t even bother ... more »

Good to see you Brian and Chance. Thanks for stopping by. I try to follow what is going on for restores here. Make no doubt I am inspired also by what you guys are doing. This stuff is no different then when I used to paint. There were only a few innovators
