I’ll try that next time. It didn’t take much of a blast to get the required finish. Scotch brite did the majority of the work on the shaft. The finish has stayed consistent for the last 9months without tarnishing. Wd40 is used a lot in my shed 👍🏽

One will pop up eventually but you may have to pay a substantial amount for it

The ignition cover and water pump cover is cerakoted in a champagne silver that a mate made for me, I’m pretty happy with the finish that came out

I blasted the tip and the arm then brushed the shifter arm. Polished the pivot pin. Then had a mate turn up the plug which I left brushed.

I may have a genuine factory shifter in the works, just waiting to hear back. Good luck finding a barpad mate, I had been looking for about 2 years prior to finding this one. They do pop up every now and then. Seat covers are another thing that is hard ... more »

Cheers mate, not too difficult to do if you have access to a metal lathe and a small block of alloy

Cheers mate At this stage I won’t be riding it. The bike is currently in my living room on display but once I sort out a shed it will end up out in the shed. I admit I do miss riding it

Pity about the engine/transmission mate. Awesome front suspension and clamp setup 🙌🏽

Thanks jez, they are a great bike and come up so well with a bit of work. Hope your engine trans on yours doesn’t set you back a fortune.

Thanks mate, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. The alloy finish on the parts was relatively easy to achieve but it was time consuming

Cheers mate, at this stage there aren’t any plans to ride it. I’ve enjoyed riding this bike every now and then over the years, now it will take pride of place on the mantle. I have a rm125 to do up next which will be a 2001 pastrana replica.
