    Thanks man.

    It's got these...I guess you would call them stress lines or something.

    This is one of the tank shrouds....see those lines?

    I can get it shinier and prettier and even brighter but unless I really dig deep into the plastic those lines would still be present.

    I'd say getting the plastics where they are after all the work you've done is commendable even with those lines there. Be proud of your efforts and run it as is. Looks good for almost 40 years old to me.

    I agree, very commendable. Considering your goal is a low budget rider, I think they are incredible.

    That's a major understatement. Then there are the finger blisters...


    As far as what that texture is called, I've called it crazing for as long as I can remember. Maybe I picked it up from high school pottery class.

    Here's a Wikipedia link, and they also mention plastics.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazing

    I've seen motorcycle/ATV plastics that have been garaged with very little miles/hours, and they seldom show crazing. I think it's mostly to chemical degradation from UV rays then physical stresses exasperate the visual evidence.

    When it's bad enough, it can't be sanded out. That's when painting is a good option and it'll protect the plastic from further sun damage.

    Thank you.

    If budget permits I would love an engine guard.......looks naked without it.

    I heard PRM is back.....that would have been an option

    Here's a video of it running.

    https://youtu.be/0NMEWjoEkis

    I replaced the o-ring.....the other came out like it was abs plastic. I also installed the airbox and taped up those drilled holes. It idles better, lower and doesn't hang too much after throttle but it will still die eventually.

    Settings before carb rebuild...

    - 115 main
    - 40 pilot (stock)
    - needle 2nd position from bottom
    - air screw don't remember.

    After rebuild

    - 100 main (stock)
    - 40 pilot (stock)
    - needle position middle slot (stock)
    - air screw 1 1/4 turns

    Started 3rd kick from cold full choke.....some backfiring. 1 kick start when warm. I'm assuming the 115 and the needle position was done with the modification of the air box and the exhaust in mind. I'm trying to recall how it ran 15 years ago and if memory serves it ran fine…… maybe dying sometimes.

    I've got a box of various jet sizes and I'm pretty confident I can get it to idle smoothly once adjusted properly so I'm going to forget about the running aspect of this project and carry on with other tasks.

    With $9 spent on the o-ring my grand total so far is $730.


    It would be great if the exhaust could be saved as that would save a lot of money.

    Warm compression test after 10 kicks 120PSI.

    Ain't it great that Honda still sells an air filter for those.

    Have you adjusted the cam chain? Kind of sounds like it needs it.

    Hop in that El Camino...fill it up with ethyl and grab that 350X if anything. Actually grab the entire kit and caboodle because half of the fun is in the chase.

    King...... Haven't done anything with the motor other than just trying to see if it can be kept alive. I'm pretty satisfied so far and since I've got to replace the head gasket and stuff I'll get everything tightened up and sealed up nicely.

    I find the best way to acquire trikes now days is just get parts. This guy has parts you show up, oh he parts for that so buy they. They he tells you this other guys had parts you become friends buy pizza beer have a man date to next guys house with parts. You trade you buy you sell, get parts. After awhile you have all the parts you need and the small stuff....just buy new on ebay done over you have a trike with out over paying for rusted junk.

    2 hits with a rubber mallet and it seemed to straighten the crossbar on the handlebars. Once the bars are off it will show just how much out of whack they are.

    Since every fastener isn't coming off without a fight I'm letting WD40 penetrate everything overnight before removal is even attempted.

    The exhaust will get an application of WD40 twice a day for 3 or 4 days....just like antibiotics. Even if the exhaust is unusable I still don't want to break off a fastener in the head trying to remove it. I do not have high hopes for it. I remember right before Christmas there was a complete stock exhaust on eBay and it went for around a $150 shipped. Something told me to jump on it at the time.

    Just trying to work a section or 2 at a time.
