Hi guys I'm about to put together a xr100 I recently got in peices for free, is there a website( The book is getting shipped) that will give me a step by step guide on how to do it. I want to get started on it asap. Thanks

I can't think of any guide that would step you through a complete rebuild from scratch.  I would suggest doing it in this order -

Start with basic frame

Install swingarm

Install forks/triple clamps/handlebars

Install wheels/tires

Install engine

Install electrical

Install controls

Install body work

Install all the misc stuff leftover.

Each of those areas should be easy enough to tackle using the service manual.

Can you weld?  Making a jig to keep the bike upright as you do it will help on ton.  Without a cradle, it's a pain. Easy, but a pain. Plus, if it doesn't have the fork bearings in a race, you should get those.  Another frustrating thing to avoid.

Is the engine in one piece....or is it completely torn apart? Post some pics of what you have as far a pieces, that will help. Good luck and have fun!
