A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Got quit a bit done today. Spent a long time making bushings for the shock. Here` a pic of my shoe goo fix on the manifold.



Still need carb work and re-weld the stock footpegs. Unfortunately not enough time to change the mounts to modern pegs.

Came across a worn out Counter shaft as I was prepping the engine for paint.
I built my own custom Works Performance shocks in the `90s. The stock Marzocchi on the 305s really sucked (I think I gave mine away). Not sure if I have the info still on what to do to make a WP shock for your ride, but I'll look.

Did ride the Fantic today to check it out for the upcoming vintage event. My shock valving is way too slow making it harder to do rear end hope and unweight. Then again, I made up the shock in like 1995, and slower damping was the norm then. Have mind to get in there and fix that little foible when I get a get a cute little Roundtoit.

It`s almost together, it runs fine. Had to weld a peg at the last minute. My son dug through my parts and found a new Brembo front lever. The pads have oil on them, but did not find a set. Might be torch time in the morning.
The bad is the cheng shin front tire. Will probably change that out with a take off I have laying around. Would have been nice to make the trials early tomorrow. Looks like after sunset now.


Almost there, will bring my spare bars just in case.

It`s been a fun week. Been meaning to get this bike running ever since our local ITSA club included old mono`s. Went from this.



On Monday, To this on Thursday!



No


Not bad for a cost of 4.99 for shoe goo. Granted I have a lot of parts laying around. Now if I can make the brakes stop I might just beat a rider or two on a modern bike this weekend. Great way to practice my no-stop!

You got astonishing long with the project turning junk into treasure.

I 'am interested: And the engine is he running quite good for to be used in trials? (Mmmh ... the later Fantic's are ... well .... the later Fantic's there was better available ... )

Sounds good for a bike that sat outdoors for almost nine years! Still a few last minute fixes to make it competitive. We have a seven mile loop Saturday, so that will certainly test the reliability. I will post back the results if I finish!

Great job Bob! Fun thread. I love seeing old bikes saved and turned into a rider. Not everyone has to be a full restoration.

The reed valve Fantics run great when they are in good condition, with performance that means its possible to ride them in easier modern events.

However rattly top ends are pretty common, and its a good idea to take a look if its particularly noisy.
