Went to The Motzing Lit Farm and got my Spree

Picked up a trashed Spree. I am getting it running and cleaned up.
I had to make a new floor board support, new cable knarp, and helicoil a lot of bolt threads, and a new seat cover. Still lots to finish

How to make cable ends.

I was at a friends house and he made a cable end for a throttle cable on the fly and it reminded me that I never posted this. 

I made this aluminum plate for making cable ends. I made two different sized knarp holes. I drilled 2 holes thru an aluminum plate and partly into another. I then bolted them together and had a nice mold for a knarp. I also had to make an entry hole for the cable. 

I fray the end of the cable a little do the solder holds better. Use 60/40 leaded solder and keep kleen flux.

When you are finished you can file it down to the size you like.

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)

Next, I raised the rear end with a different shock mount and added foam to the seat.

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.
