    DRATV/Beatrice complete front end... have you used it?

    I'm not sure if that can be straightened out and i do se the slight bend. It's a Good paint job and a nice color too.(y) Shout out to other members with the K0 pogo shocks restoration experience.'Pogo stick' That's what we call the early shocks vs the later hydraulic shocks. Thanks for the pics.:)

    DRATV/Beatrice complete front end... have you used it?

    Post a pic of your K0 front and we get a better idea of what value it has. I have a set of K4 shocks w/tree, and I will be putting them on eBay as soon as this coming week but i plan on selling again , this coming new month.:coffee:

    I'm not questioning your experience and wasn't aware of your extensive R&D on Al rims. But the main reason I'm running the 12" AL wheels is not just because of their looks,:rolleyes: I did a lot of work assembling my rims and getting the Kenra Tires mounted on em, not to mention, painting the...

    I know you have a lot of saddle miles and time on your Great machine and that's awesome. Do you run 12" Tires & Disk brakes or the stock10" tires and brake hubs? Btw: I have all that missing stuff in 77' or 91'flavor. But I would just use my 91 signals & headlight with the HL mounts. I have no...

    Oh contraire~ my friend, here is a 1977 CT70 with a disk brake conversion that i did and can use on my 91' if i should so choose. It doesn't look too much different than the stock 91' Trail Bike's front. I can even add the fold down bars!:p ...i may do that, will see. It has the L110 e-start...

    You just proved my point Bob ;)Agreed, twice as much rubber meeting the road, means you better be able to stop that twice as much rubber meeting the road or the larger rotating mass, (12" rim & Tire) . So beefing up your brakes don't seem too outrageous to me..!:geek: But...Better straight...

    DRATV/Beatrice complete front end... have you used it?

    I probably should mention that a K0 front end is kinda valuable and perhaps you could sell that to rebuild your K4 front end, Which is prob what i would do jeckler...;)

    DRATV/Beatrice complete front end... have you used it?

    I didn't even know that they had this clone 91' - 94 front end clip. For $268.oo I think its a good deal as a package but not vouching for it, lol. It includes, a 95 Mph speedometer which is the first i've seen.

    Glad to hear that a stock hub still works well above 35 mph and to 55 , i just wasn't sure. ;) The one thing i really noticed when going to the 12" Tires was how the bike now handles like a motorcycle. Part of the reason for that change is the tire's larger diameter creates more centrifugal...

    A better question is, how would it affect braking and why? Answer: It has to affect braking because a bigger rim and a bigger tire equates to more mass and the more rotating mass you have, the more braking force is gonna be needed, to stop the rotation of that brake-hub. It was initially...

    I hope the Front Brake stopping power will be enough with the 12" Rim, i guess It should be fine for around here.;) Gonna wash the bike, remove all dirt, drain the gas.... Here's the bike's Before picture. :eek:Crazy Heat & windy weather forecast, so the bike will have to be worked on inside.(y)

    THe kit i bought 5 yrs ago did include this race cam w/sproket and the intake manifold too.:) I decided I want to get the bike up and running ASap and if i think the front brake needs to be upgraded to disk brake, i can take it off the 77' build. Anything under 50 cc's is legal to ride in NV...

    Yep, that glass is to make sure all is straight while it heats up out there in the sun. Today is 109F. That's the ambient temperature and steel & aluminum will get much hotter so to be on the safe side, i just baked it for half day. Hmm.. Is there a particular colored 'Hue' emanating from these...

    POST # 424 Shows a piece of masking tape that got sprayed over and looked like part of the Head. It's a corner piece on the side of the head. I Noticed it when i did a mock up, so removed the tape and then spot repair that missed area. A gilligan move but that's why enamel was invented, spot...

    1st timer with a new project

    That's arguably one of the most Popular Trail bikes in the CT70 flavor! :cool: The Candy Yellow Special paint with the 4- speed manual transmission. Here's a lilHonda member's CYS 1971 HK1 model fully restored. Congrats on a sweet find!(y)

    The masking tape removal revealed that i masked off too much and missed a critical spot at the top of the Head!:eek: No big deal, just remask and re-shoot for a spot repair.. Another trick i use when needing some straight clean masking is to use pinstripe tape. That stuff is better at masking...

    This metallic top coat paint was a joy to work with, esp when comparing the silver rim paint i used, this stuff sits right up and the dry time is way better. Usually silver & gold can be a Pita, this wasn't bad at all. Here's a sneak quick pic. The spark plug & intake threads are good! (y) That...

    Thanks for the tip. Will keep an eye on the temp gauge for sure, i remember my L110 i would pull in the garage and place a fan at the head, to cool it. Since the 88' will draw more heat and a cooler isn't in my plans....got me thinking about using a mini 12v fan, usually used for cooling...
