My r90 restoration.
 
So I'll just start the thread off with the time lapse video of the tear down.

Yeehaw! :rayof

That was great fun! :rayof









(Love the dog at about 45 secs.... and the change of lighting as the day goes on....)

Thats pretty cool. If you just run it backwards it might be easier than doing one of an actual rebuild. :wink:

I thought there was a pretty funny moment at around :33 or :34 where you are holding up some thing in front of your face but I couldnt quite catch it

Love it. Look forward to more video of this project. Plans for a full DVD or doc of the restoration?

I thought they tucked their pants into their boots in Kentucky.. Apparently it's a southern thing?

Good luck. This is gonna be awesome.

Blaine
I assume that is the bike you were riding when i met you and the guy with the newer bike near Tellico Plains a couple of months ago, i was on my blue DR650.
Your bike is for sure worth all the effort you are putting into it, it will nice when you look at it and know the before and after.
Classic airheads are getting fewer and fewer and farther between.

blaine.hale 12-29-2009 08:30 PM

That is the very bike from out quite random encounter!
First thing I told my powder coater was the advice you gave me on taping off where the engine mount bolts go. :)

ChromeSux 12-29-2009 08:39 PM

When you get the stuff back just remove the tape and paint the areas with regular black enamel.

here is a good link to a powder coating tech article, its a Norton article but same principal about not powder coating engine mounting points etc. should apply.
I have witnessed what he says about it peeling at the mounting/wear points.

look in the tech articles section, he doesnt have the article where i can paste the exact link.

Very nice Blaine. That's gonna look real nice. Great job.

Replacing the clutch in my 78' R100 right now. Enjoy your time with it!

Bigger Al 12-30-2009 07:30 AM

That was so much fun I watched it twice!:1drink Nice job!

bgoodsoil 12-30-2009 07:57 AM

That was AWESOME! I love the 2 seconds you spend trying to get the engine out with the gearbox on. Then it's off with the box and out with the engine. Problem solving at it's best.

bmwblake 12-30-2009 08:01 AM

very cool. do you have anything to ride while you're redoing the r90?
