Hello all,
Just wanted to share two builds we just finished, my dad’s 78 and my 02. Sorry I didn’t take pics during the build (I get rolling and forget...).

Both were very low-time but neglected. Both have all new bearings, seals, top ends, and the 02 has the 05-07 crank. Stock but resprung suspension on the 02 (for now). Obviously the 78 has a set of Fox Airshox. Pretty cool to see the two side by side as they show almost a quarter century of refinement.

Very Cool ! I remember riding a friends 78 or 79 elsinore CR125 with the dual shock pro-link suspension back in the day. They have definitely evolved through a quarter century.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.
