Throwing some pics up of my rebuild. All parts are finished being powdercoated just waiting on a arms. . . Refinished the spare motor waiting for other motor from ILR. Current motor is stock with Klemm pipe and 38mm Mikuni powerjet carb. Every bearing and bushing have been replaced. I have come to learn that with any project double your budget and you will be fine. I will throw up more updates as I get time to finish.

Thanks. I would have liked to throw some chrome on it like you are doing but the budget does not allow.

Wow, that's a great build. Where could someone locate one of those K.I.P.S valve emblems like you have? That really sets off that engine. Please keep the pics coming.

I actually bought a spare motor that had one on it and bought a cylinder on ebay that had one on it. I have seen them for sale on ebay before and have gone as high as 50 dollars. I glued this on with some strong glue so hopefully it will hold

The front braided lines were on the bike when I bought it. I am assuming like D said that they are off a yfz or something, just cleaned them up. The rear was a brake line on ebay on clearance.

I am going to keep the motor and the pipe as spares. I would love to go to tecate fest but is just not possible for me. Maybe one of these years it will happen maybe down the road.
