Restoring Vintage Bikes

Recommended Posts

If this is in the wrong forum, let me know.

I have really got a craving for restoring and old bike lately, don't know why, but I'm going to go with it.

Does anyone have some useful sites that they could point me to? I really like those step-by-step before and after articles, but they seem to be few and far between.

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated, and I am looking for a bike as we speak. (asked a guy about a DT 250 today, "no, it runs, I'm going to pull it out soon, go away")

Oh well, mossy bikes aren't fun to clean 🙂

Thanks

Depending on what kind of bike you get I may be able to put you on to some info. I've restored a few '74 YZs and most of the stuff I have is related to them. They get REAL pricey right off the bat but you may be able to find an MX for reasonable price and go from there. I saw a '73 Yamaha 500 MX go on ebay not long ago that would have been a cool one to restore. It would take Iron Balls to ride it though.
