KX250 Winter Rebuild Project

So I saw the thread on GEOF rebuilding his KX80, and I figured since I'm doing a rebuild too ill make a thread for it. This is a picture of my 1998 KX250. I'm getting the frame, swingarm, and rims powdercoated black. I'm getting the wheel hubs powdercoated green. Other than that, I'm just replacing all the abused bearings and giving it a really good cleaning.

That little antique? Yeah, my dads been a fire fighter for 25+ years. He collects a lot of that stuff. He has alot of the Code 3 model firetrucks in a display case. He takes them apart and airbrushes and stencils new logos on any broken one he can find. I think he intended to restore that one...it still works as a good toy.

If you couldn't already tell that theres a firefighter in the family by the truck, 3 oxygen bottles, an air mask, and the hose nozzles up on the window sill.

The water pump clamp was like this.

I am a strong advocate of skidplate use.

I got a neat little dremel tool bit kit today with a couple mini wire brushes. I'm kind of irritated, they wore out pretty fast, but check this out. Unpolished and...kinda crappy job of polishing.
