So I'm kind of at a loss. A little background I picked up a non running 87 xr600r project for about $400 that was pretty beat up and came to life with a cheap new stator. My plan was to tear it down replace a few bearings fix a head gasket leak and probably sleeve it and add a new piston since I'd be in the top end. Sand & paint the frame and engine, call it a day and have a cheap trail bike.
Since I've had it running I havent been able to to ride it. The tires were junk and the front sprocket was on backwards making the chain rub half irs rivets off on the frame.
I bought a new chain, sprocket, tires and tubes for about $200 bucks off fleabay.. I'm cheap but one think I hate is fighting with tire spoons so I drop the wheels and tires down to my local bike shop hoping to putt around this weekend being so nice out. Unfortunately they were out sick so I stopped by the Indian triumph polaris dealer next door who says they got me and will give me a call.
Buzzkill. They call me a couple hours later and let me know the front rim had some rust issues but they got the tire on. Then they tell me the rear rim is rusted and trashed on the inside. They said they'd try to track down a rim or replacement but didnt have any luck.
I did some hunting on fleabay and found some wheels for $200-400 w shipping for a rear which could be just as ratted out. They sell some cheap Chinese rims for about $235 f+r shipped but I'd also have to buy spokes which would add another $100-200 And labor to install them could be another $100 or more. Also being a dealership I'm already charged $100 for the tire change so they get there minimum shop hour and spent $110 on eBay for the tires & tubes...
Adding all that up is be at least $6-700 bucks in wheels in tires alone. I haven't even ridden it to uncover any other problems and already think it at least needs a top end.. I'm About $800 in the bike right now and was hoping to keep it all around $1500 or at least less 2k. I was thinking most of that would be in the top end rebuild. Above $2k is probably more then the bike rebuilt is worth. I'm hoping I can find a used rear pretty cheap If anyone on here has one that's not rusted out? Or knows of anything else that will fit on it? I reall love these xr's but if I can't come up with anything im thinking of putting it up for sale or parting it out since I could through the front end on my 85 xl600r scramber I built..
Anybody have any thoughts or ideas?
Pics for good measure.
