    I hate how people post up these before and after shots and all they've done is changed the tyres. Seriously, you should have painted it white while you had the wheels off.

    I picked up a CT110 a couple of years ago. My husband and I tore it down to the frame to make it into a good looking rider.

    AFTER:

    It was a fun project and a good learning experience. I later seized it after riding some singletrack in the mountains. Since we had a repair manual, I was sure we could rebuild the top-end ourselves. My husband wasn't convinced, since we'd never done motor work before. But I studied the manual, did a lot of reading on the internet, and talked him into it. We learned even more, and the bike has ran great ever since. Here's a pic of the motor all ready to be mounted back up after the new top-end:
