SR42 restoration

Postby Foreman » Sun Oct 22, 2017 9:48 am

Hey guys, only want to share with you my recent work. Took 6 months. Engine runs fine since day I bought, so only valves and counterbalance chain were adjusted. New filters and carburator cleaning. New internals for the fuel pump. Cosmetic changes and ready to go!

This is what I bought:

And this what it became:

Hope you like it people. I'm like a child on Christmas day :mrgreen:

Wow, that looks amazing, nice work, did you get your crash bars from RD Moto? I ordered a set 4 weeks ago and still no sign of them

Looks like the same DR calipers, just painted gold.
As it`s so original you should have stuck with silver
Must have cost a few £££ to restore. Looks good :tup:

Wow, what an expectation! Thanks for the thumbs up guys!
Not that big bucks invested BigBob, because I have done all the work by myself. I reused all that It could be reused, fix, sprayed and back to the old girl again.
Where I put more €€€ were in RDmoto crash bars, stickers (non original, came from Italy) and paint. As for the calipers colour, they were in black (see first pic), don't kwon if black was original colour scheme, but because I painted the rims and wheel in black because they were in a nasty state, I didn't bother to keep the original caliper colour; besides I was looking forward to paint them gold :mrgreen: The rest of the can went for the handlebar.
