Thanks, i appreciate it ! The forks are done by a company in the Netherlands called paardekam suspension. I think every suspension shop can anodize your forks or have partners who can anodize it. Hopefully it's finished by 9/11/2016 It would be so awesome ... more »

Got my engine cases back from vapour blasting and found a sandcast replica Honda Racing ignition cover which i painted in grey. The clutch side cover was supposed to turn out more like a brown/grey finish ! So probably it will be repainted with another

I would also recommend vapour blasting ! The engine cases will be more protected from corrosion and dirt stains.

Ah man, sad to see you sell it ! Price sounds good, if only i lived in the USA.. I would die to have a unique piece like that in the garage, think shipping to Belgium will easily cost 1.5k Anyway you'll sure find a buyer.

Hello. Some updates from the past few weeks ! Today i picked up my suspension from the shop, after they gave it a "A kit" touch. Fork lugs were hard-anodized in black, inner tubes have the gold Ti-nitrate coating and the upper tubes anodized in silver.

I've read an article that says the metal is more protected for oxidation and stains after vapour blast. After some research i saw that alot of people use this method for bike restaurations. Here is the Quote: "The process uses water, micro beads, mild ... more »

Last option was vapour blast, and decided to go with that ! Finish looks almost the same, only minus is you don't have the brushed look, but that's ok. I think the finish of vapour blast will give a 100% perfect finish. Brought my engine to the shop ... more »

Thanks. Yeah i love the YZ to, it was my first 'real' motorcycle and didn't want to get rid of it ! The problem was i needed more space in the garage so this was the solution.

Added reply in a thread CR250 Ricky Carmichael 2001 MXoN replica build (FINISHED ! Found the HRC silencer) 8/28/2015 7:08 AM

No, i removed all the internals like jets and stuff. Just left the top cover and floater cover on and stuffed some paper towel in the intake and airboot holes, because i didn't want to blast the inside of the carburetor. Then after blasting, clean the ... more »
