Cheers mate, it’s taking shape now. I’d love too do the US open bike but I got to say it’s looking more like the makita bike is the pick.

Little bit of progress, more parts have slowly arrived. Radiators we’re cleaned thoroughly and fitted. Likewise with the carburetor. Fitted new OEM hoses and used a couple of Honda OEM clamps to tidy up and secure to the case saver. Also fitted OEM chain

Yeah it takes so much time and effort but it’s worth it for the finished product. Your clamps came up real nice mate ??

Had some time today to clean up the stock triple clamps. I purchased a set of rg3 clamps for this build but they were too neat to strip down to look like the factory clamps so decided to keep them for a future 125 build.

I hadn’t had any luck finding a factory Suzuki gear shifter so I modified a hammerhead shifter to get the desired look. I sandblasted the shifter to remove the original coating, polished and brushed the main part of the shifter. I then had a mate turn

No I’m not equipped to do cerakoting but I know someone who is who has done it all on this bike. Seems to be of really good quality, nice uniform finish

Picked up a few parts from getting cerakoted today, quite happy with the results. Power valve covers and water pump cover are in a champagne color and the rear brake caliper carrier is burnt bronze to match the hubs. The water pump cover started out

These are the wheel set that going on the bike, consists of standard second hand hubs that have been cleaned up on a lathe just to remove all the little dints and marks. They were then cerakoted burnt bronze to replicate the factory magnesium rear hub

Good to here it’s still in your possession. This bike will stay will be a keeper also. I’ll try to keep it as up to date as possible, I’ve got a few cool parts that I’ve acquired over the years going onto it so it should turn out fairly neat

Thanks mate, it’s a tedious task assembling a bike but very rewarding. Have you still got your rm250? I remember following the built a couple of years ago

I like the US open bike as it had similar colors to the 2004 factory bike which looked brilliant. But I’ve got a soft spot for the makita bike

Fitted up the glide plate with some titanium counter sunk bolts and fitted some titanium pro circuit pegs with new springs and pins
