Let me introduce myself. Im Martin, new member, old "watcher" of that ADV forum and im preparing my Old Honda 1990 fro race Heroses Legent ( Paris to Dakar legendary race )
Im doing my restauration for a year now, i started as a low budget project on september 2011 but very fas i have decided that i need a money to do it right, stay alive on the race. Race bike has to be in 100 % in perfect conditions otherwise whole work with be usless.
This is my bike after i have strip some parts.
Now after a year i have spare money and i have collected almost every parts that i needed including specially bulid engine by XR only ( im from Poland, Europe so u can imagine logistic problems to do it:)) )
About the engine it will be a separate discussion , just now some snake pics.
I have also bought most of litle parts like rubbers, ruber tubes, small metal parts brand new. It took some time but most of the bike will be new:))
I will need some help from U guys as there are some things that i still did not decide what to choose, and time is passing very fast...
This is picture made a year ago when i was stripping the bike.
Engine made by XR ONLY. Based on old HRC specifications- 628 big bore with 10:1 compression ratio ( they asked me for more like 12:1 but i need that engine to last a lit bit longer then one race:))
This is delivery time:)))
Is in cooling box so adventure already started:)
