    RacerX getting a makeover. (FINISHED)

    Well, since the winter is here and I have no other projects to work on at the moment, I figured I'd tear down the infamous RacerX and give it a complete once over. I've actually been working on this since the beginning of winter. I've completely tore down the bike. Every piece will be gone over, refurbished or replaced. The frame and hubs will be redone in a chrome blue. The plastics will be white. The motor was finished today. It was tore down to the last spring. Everything got mic'd, refurbished and reassembled. The swingarm will get a fresh coat of mothers and a polish along with other small parts. The axle and such have allready been chromed. The tank is still setting in the garage awaiting it's turn. The tank shrouds will be left off and it's gonna get finished without them. I think most of you know where I am going with this build. The bike will strictly be a grag bike from here on out. Occasionally I'll throw the turf tamers on it and take it for a spin but it's true purpose will be on the drag strip.
    Here's some pics of things so far.

    Original

    After first redo.

    Now




    And this was the look I'm going for but with a little more pizzaz.

    DC Plastics on Ebay or here on the boards. It's for the Kawi T-3 but it'll work. They have them in green or white.

    Not much progress on the build. The frame finally went out to be blasted last week. Should pick it up Thursday and have it to the chromer by next Monday.

    I did get a little bored and cleaned up the shock.
