thanks for the help Jeff..
Since last post I have rode this bike a ew times and the piston slap was driving me crazy so I decided to remove the top end and replace the piston,but I also decided it needed new crank seals so I decided to remove the engine from the frame.Well I thought if I have the engine out I may as well paint the frame and body panels so thats where im at
and heres the pics..


















I have painted the frame, but didnt take a pic yet, but I will so stay tuned!

Well the tank on this bike was a little rusty inside and it had alot of pin holes..The only thing I could come up with for a fix was to cut the bottom of the tank away and repair the tunnel..





decided to do it in 5 sections
and the first




then I flatened out the piece I removed


then made a new one


bent it up and fitted it


welded in


on to the next cut


cut replacement


and then ran out of time

Ok I finished the tunnel and checked the welds for any holes by turning off the light and placed a light in the tunnel and checked for light to come through from the other side.





then started to joined the to pieces to make a tank again!






and the hole thats still left to fill

Thank you Sir, I have just installed the rear wheel with a new sprocket. I dropped it a tooth due to it being geared a little low for me..
I ordered some fork gaiters from a ttr125, I think they will work well.
also ordered a front sprocket a gold non o-ring chain and some mesh to make a headlight guard from..And I only have a few more parts to strip in the sandblaster and then paint. And last but not least will be painting the motor (can someone suggest a paint in a spraycan for the motor??) and bore the cylinder...Im also looking for a working speedo and a tach if any one has any please PM me,,thanks

I know this is a tad late, But I asked a local 1 DAY Paint and body how much they would charge for painting a motorcycle frame gloss black with flex agent in it to allow it to be more durable, if I prepped it and they told me $40.00. I will never paint another motorcycle frame as long as I live! Shoot, the automotive paint I would use costs 80 bucks!

I think you can get them at a bearing specialist if you have the dimensions of the stockers. OD ID thickness.

Wow, that is one hell of a deal.Unfortunately all the paint shop in my area are out of their mind asking 250.00!!
I think my auto zone duplicolor will hold up just fine

havent made alot of progress,it seems the little thing consume large amounts of time.
installed some fork boots from a ttr125 and started on a headlight mount with a little twist.
This bike didnt come with a speedo or tach the previous owner said he lost them so I had to come up with something to hold the key switch..



the bolt holding the light bucket to the mount will be replaced by a wing nut and the light will be a quick release..

also going to make this chain guide work, just think it looks cool


added some renthal twin tube bars and clamps.and made the turn signals work by switching the stems from side to side and making a few spacers.


and an over all pic..
