Why would someone have cut off the rear hoop on the subframe?

When you flip the bike and bend it, it is cheaper to cut it off than buy a new subframe or fix it.

more tear down:







I think this bike suffered from the magnesium clutch cover corrosion problem. I'm also not sure when the last time the cooling system had something resembling coolant. All I found was a green jelly substance.

you sure it's cut? many models had a hoop for gs and no hoop for mx. if you had to swap rear fenders to the mx style you had to remove the hoop....

here's a pic of how they did it 1984..

hmm, it could be.

I've cleaned up the cooling system and refilled it. I also changed the oil in between other household duties. The drips that came out were quite sad looking. Yesterday I removed the carb boot and spread copious amounts of RTV over the entire thing to seal up any air leaks. I want to clean up the pipe, re-install it and fire it up.

There is an issue with the rear brakes that I haven't tackled yet. After that, all I need to do is swap the rear tire out and it will be a decent rider.

Thats a Z Racing pipe. They sold a bunch of aftermarket stuff for KTM's in the 80's and early 90's. I know Dirt Bike Magazine always used their stuff. Cool project and good luck.

thanks for the info, guys. I decided last night that it wasn't the project for me. Too rare and parts availability too sketchy.

I sat it out front and it sold this morning for what I paid for it. :)

Time to find another project.

Yeah, that's ok. I'm sure you'll get a chance to check out another build thread. I am thinking about looking for a CT 110. ;) Nice and manageable.

I just like projects. A Honda trail will be pretty easy to get parts for.

Cool bike Those 350's are pretty rare I think. I looked at buying one a few years ago but never ended up taking it home. Excited to see what you do with it.
