Why carn't some thing on this bike not be stuffed. Just pulled the tires off to have a look at the rims. The front on has serious cancer and the rear just has bad cancer.

You could try Zane's bikes and bits but his prices of late leave a bit to be desired as he wants half new price for everything

I went to transport this arvo to see what the process is. About registering the XT with no proof of owner ship when restored. Could prove to be interesting.

If you got it from a known person they just get a basic "i paid this for this" and all should be well..... with luck

Well im going to have the same problem then.

I thought as long as the bike had its vin plate & matching frame there's no problem registering it?

Ive got one hand scribbled receipt & i could contact the others for the same but ive got no rego papers for any of them, didn't think it mattered as its not proof of ownership, a written receipt is proof that you bought the bikes surely (and don't call me Shirley)

What did they say Dan?

Basically, As long as the bike has been rego'ed before and has a compliance plate. All that is required is a road worthy and some from of ownership. Can be scribbled note from previous owner. Or a stat dec saying the bike is mine.

And smile and be polite while re regoing

Interesting resto project and great write up!

I'm always amazed at the projects some folks will tackle. I've done a little resto stuff and after I'd seen that kit of parts you showed in the beginning I'd have run away from it with the thought "it's going to end up costing more than it's worth, when I'm done". Of course it doesn't all come down to $$$ I surely understand that. I'm hoping the engine won't be as ugly inside as the rest of the parts have looked.

By the look of your work it will come out looking like a rose for sure. I'll be very interested to see the finished product.

I don't know the market there, are those bikes still available in good/decent condition on the used market? We never got them here in the States. I'm always jealous of the bikes the rest of the world gets.

I have to agree with you and I will rewire mine.

Hi Sonny, I bought a NOS headlight cowl for $40 from Montclair Motorcycles. Not quite up the road from you.

I am looking forward to that as well. I push the kick starter the other day an the piston goes up and down. I bought a mystery bag off ebay for $20. Maybe I can use some of the those parts. Also got an oil cooler in a lot better nick than mine $40

Hi Dan, I would really like an early model BMW R80gs. The price of them has gone way past for what is reasonable. One went on Ebay for $13,500 ($13,400 US) for a clean low mileage one.

The next cab off the rank is an early model Tenere'. I don't think they have quite caught on, like my BMW R100RS. They are on the back burner and prices are simmering away.

This is the biggest project in the worse condition I have tackled and can be over whelming to look at the whole thing. The only way I can do the job is focus on one section. Complete that and move on to the next section. Andy Gadget and my wife reckon I am a compulsive obsessive completer. An will keep going without sleep or food till finished.

They reckon this project will teach me patience and I cannot finish the bike in a short space of time.

Starting to pull the front wheel apart. Drew my self a mud map of spoke rotation for when I get some new spokes and time for respoking. Now to try find where I can get spokes from?


The front rim is not as bad as I first thought and might be salvaged after all. Only one bad bit corrosion near the valve. A bit of cleaning with a brass brush an some emery paper. Will need painting to seal the aluminium and piece of cloth tape under the rim rubber. Else the rubbing will wear through the tube in time.


Thanks to Andy Gadgets tool emporium. The spoke cutter makes quick work of removing spokes.


Now for today's mystery question. Well every thing on this bike is a mystery. What instruments are these? They were on the bike, but XT600 with red marking at 60 kph (40 mph) an a red line of 9,500 rpm. A DT175 maybe? The headlight bracket looks like a 3TB.

I saw that headlight surround Dan, it didnt look right to me.
I kept looking my original (cracked one) and looked at that one & something just didn't look right, the shape for one.

That spoke cutter, is it just a mini bolt cutter yeah? i was just going to blast mine with my angle grinder.

That Tenere run, where is the start & where is the finish?

Mezo.

I have no idea of what is right or not right. With all the parts in boxes. It is hard to get a feel for what is a bodgy or not.

Andy said the tool was a spoke cutter, but could be a mini bolt cutters.

The current headlight.
