CR85R Rebuild

Picked up a 2007 CR85R. 
Has lots wrong with it so I am taking it apart and rebuilding it. 

Frame was spray painted. Rims were spray painted. Brake pads and brake lines were shot.  Crank bearings and seals are shot. 

I started by stripping it down to the frame and repainting the frame white. I used 2 part urethane automotive paint.

Xr200r Works Shock upgrade

 I have been looking for a shock upgrade for the xr for half a year. Mine is a 2002 which has a shitty non rebuildable shock. The early 84-91 models have rebuildable tunable shock but rarely come up on ebay.  I found a top of the line WORKS shock on ebay for an 1/8th of the price. when I got it, it needed a new bladder, valve, and adjustment rings but Works was able to sell me all new parts and I rebuilt it. 

The bike is now way better and doesn't bottom out. 

I also replaced the steel swingarm linkage with aluminum linkage to save weight and a longer wishbone to lower the back end to better match the small 17" front wheel.

Maxi N

 I have been working on this maxi n. Its a polini with a crank pipe. I used some special dye/paint for the side covers and it seems like it isnt going to chip. Time will tell.

Work on the Van

I have been doing a lot of work on the 78 shorty. Trying to make it quiet inside and nice. 
I am going to be able to fit so many mopeds in here.
