Here's the deal. Typical father and husband of 5 kids and a crazy job. Needed something to wrench on and eventually have some fun on. Finances low but always been one to fix what I can . Anyways, got this bike which has been beat on pretty bad.
-Air filter was almost non existent,
-water in the case,
-Rear break not working,
-muffler packing gone
-slick for a back tire
-forks leaking etc.
Fixed so far
-made seat cover
-cleaned carb and tank
-cleaned air box , new filter
-no water in case(broken O-ring replaced on oil filler)
More to come......
Looking forward to your build thread. I'm a Father and husband of 3. My 96 125 took a lil over two years. This is with $1100 total including purchase price. Lots of elbow grease.
That's awesome @crashhard_17 . I'm figuring this should keep me busy for a while. But having the kids pick up a wrench and getting greasy is awesome. Thanks for posting your ride
There actually are holes in this pipe , was bad
Couldn't see more than 30 holes prior to cleaning. Here goes packing
Pretty simple, hope this helps out the next rookie
When someone recommends gloves when packing fiberglass listen, wish I did , stuffs got me ichin like crazy
Cleaned the rims today and polished. Found a lot of loose spokes, honestly I'm not surprised
A pic of when I first got it
Never mind the messy garage
Seat covering , pretty getto but that's how it is
Was hoping bike might of had upgraded sprockets but no, stock 12 F and 49 R. Will have to get more trail friendly setup some time.
Also a chain , O-rings are out like bell bottom jeans
I used to work in a plant that made fiberglass sheets, took me 3 days to quit..could not move my hands it was so bad.
Finally got to rear brake master , it's not pretty but it was frozen
This little thread is for those guys and gals who find it difficult to afford new parts. Cleaned out what I had and now have rear brakes

First, you guys should say, "husband and father of 5/3 kids", not "father and husband of 5/3 kids". Otherwise, it sounds like you married a bunch of kids and you guys aren't even in Utah.
Second, what are you doing for plastics? These years are getting super tough to find anything in decent shape.

Thats pretty boss, good old 94 KX, they had a ripper of a motor.
Got any good riding spots where you are?
