A couple of years ago Lee Walston told me he'd like to try to do one of the 125 dream races, and how bad he wanted to race a nice 125 again. Lee is a super fast vet rider, just finished 5th in 40+ at the Vet Nats and 1st in 45+! Podium contender every year at LL! He can haul the mail!! We decided to make his dream a reality and showcase our products and build Lee is dream bike to race! We took my sons former race bike to the frame and did our thing! Here are a few pics of the final build and a sick little edit of the day he finally got to see the bike and ride it for the first time! Next year is gonna be so fun!!

Ceracote on the upper fork tubes? How does the finished product compare in thickness to anodizing, or Kashima? Are the tolerances maintained on the tube-to-clamp fit?

According to Cerakote.com it is .001ml. No issue at all with tube to clamp fitment. So far we have had very good success with the limited number we have done. Cerakote seems to hold up very well to cleaners and chemicals. I am not claiming to be an expert, just sharing what we have found so far...

How is the surface prepped prior to the ceracote? (is the anodizing removed , or just applied over?)

Its a multi step process, and yes any anodizing or any other coating is removed in prep!

Great work. I love YZ125s. Part of me would be nervous to ride it and ruin how fresh it looks lol.
