I totally understand and share your concern. we'll just have to see how it turns out I guess... I'm not sure if the original HRC ones were injection molded or Vacuum formed. My 83 HRC plate looks very similar to Maier plastic when you get up close. The ... more »

I think injection would be too expensive for me from a tooling cost standpoint, but we have access to a vacuum form machine...

So I picked up an 83 CR480 this week, it could hardly be considered a project, because it's pretty clean already. I had a full-on nerdgasm when the guy I bought it from pulled out an actual HRC Double strap screen door front number plate! I've ... more »

Got the Suspension back from TBT today! I swapped out the stock '00 forks for a set from an '07, because I'm told that the '07 forks are as close as I'm going to get to what the factory Honda team was running on '00-01, ... more »

I know the main valve flap and the two sub valves are unique to the 00-01 CR's, but most of the rest of the parts are the same from 92-01. I spot checked some of the part numbers and the main flap seems to have changed about every year, and the sub valves ... more »

Yeah, i work at Seat Concepts, the cover in the pic is one of our Supergrip Competition covers, which work really well (shameless plug) but isn't exactly period accurate. I had our sew shop whip up a basic cover to look like the team ones, ... more »

Not much to report right now, the suspension is at TBT for coatings, springs, & valving. I swapped the '00 forks for a set off an '07, because I'm told that's a little closer to what the team ran in '00 and I had them lying around anyway so why not? ... more »

Thanks! I scrubbed everything with aluminum brightener then took them to AC Racing and had them put in the tumbler. It was a fair amount of work but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
