Nice job! Where did you get the fenders? I have a TLR200 and I would like to replace the fenders.

A very strict budget ensured that it would never be a 'buy a new bit and bolt it on' project, everything had to be renovated and re-used. That's cool, sanding, painting, polishing and doing every bit myself was way more satisfying than just throwing money at it. And in the process I learnt how to spraypaint, how to polish aluminium, how to lace a wheel, even how to buy stuff from the other side of the planet... (Google is your friend)
The only bits I had to buy because they were either missing or irrepairable were, mudguards, handgrips, front spokes, brake shoes, chain, a wee bit of chrome and of course, paint. Came in well under $800AU.

I got a bit carried away with the work and forgot to take many progress shots so here are some 'before and after' shots.

I still need to get tyres, I think these might be the originals!, and the seat needs repair, upholstery next?

Please enjoy and I would appreciate any and all comments you may have.

Cheers,
Pete.

* A note on the paint scheme. I painted it like this 'cos I like it, I can always paint it original next time I restore it... in another 20 years.









I have a strong urge to build a cafe racer now.....

Hi Bill, got them from InMotiontrials in the UK. Here is there website www.inmotiontrials.com, good to deal with and fast, about $20AU to fly them halfway around the planet. Although they said the rear was a replica TLR guard, you can see from the photos it isn't.

Cheers,
Peter.

I just used an Acerbis on the old fork brace....but if you don't have the original with brace,then you'll have to make your own.When I rebuilt mine a few years ago I was asked if I wanted red or white - imagine having a choice these days.

Well I ordered a Chinese made CDI in the off chance it would work. In the mean time Grizzzzzzzly found one and I just recieved it today. I wired the Chinese one up yesterday after cleaning the carb, and gas tank. Well after it kicked the shit out of me it cranked up and ran. So now I can try the one Grizzzzzly sent and see if it works. If it does I'll use the chinese one for my TL125 project that I don't have yet.

Good 'ol Grizzz.


Stick with the Genuine Honda CDI. I will almost guarantee the one from China will fail.

That makes me a little nervous. I am rebuilding a Reflex right now and knowing there's a shortage of some parts is not good news.

Dumpster dive baby, dumpster dive! That is how I got enough junk to make one.
