looks great. i've only rebuilt one 2 stroke from the frame up like that.

i'd love to pick up a clapped out 125 and do it again.

good luck.

If you want that aluminum frame to really POP get some English Power Polish and go to town with a Dremmel... I stopped useing the third step because it got the metal to such a flawless shine you can scratch the surface with just a light rub of the pad of a finger. Just the 2 compounds look amazing. Your project looks good,enjoy it while it's happening, I'm sure you'll be proud of that one when your done!

I have completely polished tons of frames. The best way is to wet sand it with 1000, then 1500, and finish with 2000 grit paper. Wash it good then hit with a buffer using 3M perfect-it III compound. That leaves a absolute mirror finish.

The way it sits as of now. Have not had much time to mess with it due to some unexpected family things.

How did you clean the frame up so well before you started polishing it ?

The frame is not polished. Just cleaned very well. I take the frames to a local guy who does anodizing. He dips them in a tank and does a 4 stage clean process on them. End result is very nice.

To answer a few of the previous questions.

Ignition and clutch covers are hard anodized.

Cases were cleaned with diluted sulfuric acid and ceramic coated.

Bike was one of Steve Lamosn's Former works bikes. There is another thread for it. It is now eaby up for auction.

There was another thread for it but it just seemed to "disappear"

depends on year of bike if your doing one from last ten years, the price drops considerably. but if u r doing a vintage like an 80s or early 90s then buy two one, and mix the parts between the two and take the best. trust me i did an 89 yz 250 and tranny parts were crazy, donnt get me wrong it was a thrill but its a shame we didnt powdercoat the frame cause now the original white had chips and now has more, UGLY. he didnt know they powdercoated them and wanted to do acrylic enamel. thts our only real regret. cost can be around 4-5 depending on what needs to be done. if you want stock then its like 1-2 but if you want to do mods and stuff then it adds up quick
