My 1980 KDX175 Project bike

Here's a pic of what I hope is the finished product. It sat for 25 years in my neighbor's basement...that was tough on it and me. <400 miles on it :


She runs strong now. New tank, piston rings. The rest was tear down, clean and re-assemble (like the clutch and carb). Had to fabricate an air filter.

If it had been a street bike or a factory tank, I would have ponied up the bucks for oem stickers. As it stands a hair dryer and ten minutes the stickers are gone...just wanted to break up all that green and the tank is aftermarket anyways.
