hey, i just picked up my 1988 tecate and love it. its got some surface rust on the frame which i'm planning on powdercoating. but otherwise its in decent shape. starts second kick in any weather.i do have some questions tho. im looking for a new exhaust for it and found out fmf doesnt have a good rep. any suggestions?



som far i have plus 2 a-arms and axle. taper bars.i'm not sure on the make of the front shocks i'll look into that. anyone know where i can get some nerf bars?

Your shocks on the front are works dual rates. What kind of nerf bars you want? I have some steel ones here I would gladly let go.

Burgard +2 a arms very nice, hard to find those. They still have a site up with replacement ball joints for those arms if you need them. The wheels may look like they are from burgard as well?

Any aftermarket pipe you can find which is sometimes hard to do( Klemm-DG-Power Pros- Bills-Dynoport) will be better than an fmf. I have heard the stock is better than the fmf

thanks man the pic of it white was just thrown together i have the lights for it and origonal white wheels. the guy before me jacked up the shocks to the max, i have to lower them down it feels too tall thro the turns. all i have to say is never paint your plastics lol its a real b**** to get off.
