Reply to Helmet help 5/23/2020 10:07 PM

Your best bet is to graft the inner parts of a similar helmet. Find a similar style open face and size and use that. It will not be the easiest thing to do but you can do well enough to obtain the desired appearance. No manufacture would do this due ... more »

This member is absolutely good to go. He follows through and is excellent on communication. I dropped quite a bit of coin with this fine member. Totally stand up and will deliver. A++++

Honda man.. I am trying to get hold of you regarding a Honda letter you posted in another thread. I sent you a PM but you must not have seen it.

Great job Brian. I never knew how simple it is to zinc plate. It is always immensely satisfying to be able to stand back and know you did it all. Congratulations on having basically a new Honda that you brought back.

I’m so hogging all this members parts. This guy is another outstanding Vital member to deal with. I already bought some stuff from him and he very generously gifted me some additional items. Who does that? So I did the right thing and compensated him ... more »

Hey brother, what you need is an intermediary here in the States. Maybe West coast. I know of where at least (3) 95 Honda CR 250s are. I haven’t seen them since they are spread out and hours away. If I did not own (3) 95’s already I would be on the hunt ... more »

Yes on the steering stops. That is why I cut into them to allow for a greater range of movement. The carbide Dremel bit I used actually made it pretty easy. Don’t cut at a crazy high speed. Cut it at a speed it will continue to turn and not bind. Do ... more »

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

Reply to 1996 cr250r looking for parts to finish build 5/8/2020 4:49 PM

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.

Reply to 1992 CR 125 Restoration: Peak Pro Circuit Replica project?! 5/8/2020 12:42 PM

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...

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

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
