This is the 1990 swing arm

So I think my Re-Build idea is off base. I think I am doing more of a rebuild / 1988 works bike. My friends think I am just wasting my money and I should just go out and buy a new bike, but what fun is that. Pictured below is the rear suspension of a

Upgraded the stator plate cover from plastic to aluminum. Picked up a nice 2002 plate of Ebay cheap. Plan on getting some color on it to make the engine look more presentable.

Just found the solution for my fork stop problem. Weird that there aren't more of these floating about but it seems like most companies making parts for bikes, like anodized triple clamps, just want to make them for the newest bike. Probably figure those

If you need a good laugh I made a YouTube video of the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXtPD15t5Vg&feature=youtu.be

I'm just trying out different parts to make a modern 1988 CR 125r. I'm just not a vintage guy that wants to keep everything the same. I know it would be a lot cheaper to just scrap the bike instead of fixing it up, that's what my friends keep telling

So I contacted Race Tech and it appears they can do it and do some hard anodizing too. Since I plan to revalve the rear suspension I thought it would be a good idea to do something special with the front forks. I've seen different 80's model bikes with

Even after power washing I still had some nasty grease that just wouldn't come off.

Shock is removed and I want to get it re-valved. This was a lousy shock in its day but I never could afford to get it worked on years ago. Plus, I ... more »

Here's the side shot before I put the power washer to her. I remember putting those black sticky sheets on to protect the plastic. Guess that was a bad idea now that I am looking back.

Sweet, What did you do to the triple clamps to make them fit on the 1988 heatset?

I have to disagree. My 1988 CR 125 would walk away from my friends 1989 CR 125 back in the day when they were new. The 1988 was a top end screamer while the 1987 had more usable power in the mid-range.
