Looking for some one to rechrome the forks for me at the moment.
What are the plans for your bike? full restoration?
I am still not sure of my bikes history, wheter it was an original gs dual sport or off road only, so not sure of direction yet.
I need to get my hands on head bearings and fork seals, any ideas?
Cool, is your bike the same year as mine ( 1982 ) ? What was the condition of your engine like? Other than a new piston and a bore, my engine appears to be in perfect condition.
Is there damage/wear on your front forks pistons? I honestly dont know if you can rechrome them, I am sure other members on this forum would know. I would be curious to know also, luckily the chrome on my front fork pistons are in great condition. I am going to have the lower front fork body's anodized .
Another member posted link earlier in my tread that appears to have quite a extensive amount of vintage KTM parts, have a look
I am doing a full restoration on my bike but not to the point where you dont want to use it, I am starting to really, really like this vintage Austrian bike. I honestly dont know if my bike was originally a dual sport or off road model but I am going to restore it to be a Dual sport, its just much more fun to be able to drive to the trails VS having to put the bike on a trailer.
Post some pics of your bike when you get a chance.
