XR200R front rim swap

I picked up an xr200r a while ago with plans to make it a nice daily. I wanted a 17" front end to match the rear. There were a lot of swap options but I ended up getting a matching rear rim with spokes on ebay hoping the spokes would match up to the front hub. It tuned out the hubs are the exact same so it was a direct swap.

Before photo. (different bike forgot to snap a photo of mine)

Pinto to Cobra.

I picked up a Puch Pinto a while ago.  Right after I got it, Dos got in replica Cobra tanks so I figured why not. I got a seat from a Puch Condor that fits up pretty good. On to it.

Another Maxi Rebuild

I picked up a silver Maxi last week. Tonight I started tearing into it. 

I started by taking it completely apart. Ill sand and paint it, and put it back together. 

Cleaned up the frame. 

Cleaned up my paint guns and got them ready. 

 I went tear base coat with a green flake over it. Should look great with thick clear. 

Started assembling the Maxi

 All new wiring. 

 Wiring cleaned up and finished.

Maxi rebuild

Picked up a Maxi. Tore it apart and started putting it back together. 

 I have this great little shopping cart that holds everything I removed from the bike. 

I washed the frame and parts with oven cleaner and scuffed everything with steel wool. 

Primed everything and then painted red.

Ready for clear coat. I used Spraymax 2K clear. 

The engine rebuild used a treats performance crank, all new bearings and seals, 70cc treats top end, and a internal coil points ignition. 

I got a new buffing wheel and got to try it out on the controls. 

I rewired everything and fan new cables.
