    85R 3 years and still going

    Hi, this is my first posting and thought I would share my long dragged out resto.I have my 86R I bought new and raced for two years and had no intrest in doing another resto. Then one day a customer called wanting to know if I wanted to trade a couple of hours labor for a 3wheeler so I said I would take a look. When he arrived and begane backing into the driveway I had to stop myself from ripping it off the trailer before he stopped haha! First thing I saw was the shorttrack tank then on to the durablue swing arm and the gold front frorks!
    So thats how this one started over 3 years ago. Here is a quick run down so far as what has been done.
    powdercoated frame, candy apple red
    powdercoated swingarm & misc parts, black
    all hardware is gold cad plated
    Motor, rebuilt crank,.060 wiseco,hinson basket,quickchange and counter bearing holder,nacs mag ,waterpump cover and kicker,cool head, duncan reed cage,paul turner head pipe and fatboy 2 silencer.
    JB racing swingarm
    atvinnovations rear brake caliper "go figure"
    team axle and carrier
    I am getting a buch of parts together now to get anodize. I will try to post pics and keep updating as i finish it up. Thanks for checking it out ,Glenn.

    Looks amazing really really clean and everything looks brand new....pretty sure most of it is. what are you going to do for tank and plastics? Keep the short track and dye it black? Guessing thats what the rit dye is for I used to use it all the time to die wheels on rc cars. Or I could just be way off.

    Close audioworks the rit die is for the air scoops for the frame. Im going to keep the shot track tank but am looking for another to paint white the tank I got is to nice to touch also going white fenders. Dirtcrasher I had the hardware replated I have a local place that does up to 100 lbs for $75.00 . Makes life easy!

    85r build 3+ years and still going

    Back at it again and hope to stay with it till it done. I have the seat and front rim being made.I got a pile of parts i have to polish and off to anodize then I can assemble the front end and axle.
    I just rebuilt the rear master and got the front caliper cleaned up.Going to try to resurface the front rotor today on a flywheel grinder ill let you know how that turns out. Thats all for now. Thanks for looking!
