  1. XR
    Here is my latest XR600R project on my YouTube Motorcycle & Tool Rehab Channel that I'm saving from the junkyard. I managed to get it running after sitting for several years. The old girl even threw my off on camera which put me out of action for a few weeks. It hurts more when your older The...

    Hello AT lovers. I am from İstanbul / Turkey 7 years ago, i sold my XRV when i was divorced. In one week missed my bike and i felt so sorry but it was top late to get it back. Here is the short story of restoration. I bought the bike in boxes ☺ It took 5 months to restorate. Don't sell your XRV !

    Hello Chaps. I've just taken delivery of a tired 1985 XR350, which is currently fitted with a 250 motor complete with a race head! My challenge is to do a complete restoration on it and also find a 350 in one piece if possible, or I'll have to build one from scratch using new and second hand...

    First big problem on my rd03 restoration the casting on the hub broke away when removing the very stuck bolts. I was going to rebuild the wheels anyway. So I need A hub Or wheel Or transalp 600 hub Or wheel Or dose any one know of any other wheels fit. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    Hi, just bought one of these as a project bike. Bike has been sitting since 1992. All the plastics (fenders, side panels, fairing) are full of cracks. The cracks are just on the white paint that these parts have. Paint is not loose or coming off, but it's not pretty. They can only be seen...

    I am curious. When I removed my center stand before the restoration, I didn't have these rubber o-rings. It seems my center stand has a little side-to-side play. I bought two from my ,ocal hardare store and they are smaller. They do fit the two sleeves/ pivots. Where do these o-rings go? I think...

    So I went to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes and completely tore my dommie apart for a restoration. I'm currently rebuilding it, and I've changed the pads on the rear, but there is only a pin to secure them on one end, which means that the pads won't stay in the caliper! What am I...
  10. What's it worth?
    Hello All, I have recently come into ownership of a 1996 Africa Twin. Last run in 2007, it has sat garaged up ever since. Complete non-runner in need of a complete overhaul, although it is complete as the day it was last ridden. 42k miles. Just wondering on a rough idea of value in its current...

    I'm busy gathering the last few bits for the restoration of rd03. I'm in need of the indicator and pilot lamp relays. New prices are just too high! It's the two pin indicator relay and the 4pin (red connector) pilot lamp relay. There is also a 3pin red connector relay but I need the 4pin...

    One I knocked up earlier in the year. This was my own bike so kind of just played around with it making it how I liked myself. Not scared to crash it either. It came off roading with me a few times. I had a Hagon with stiffer springs so it handled quite well. I've done a couple of XR650L's...

  17. Africa Twin
    Haven't been on much at all recently as the bike was parked up around a year ago and has been undergoing a sporadic upgrade/restoration. Here are a few pics (99% of what you see was supplied by Rugged Roads!) The swingarm was painted by Sudden Impact in Essex who did a fantastic job.

    Picked the Sept. issue of Classic Motorcycle Mechanics mag up the other day, and there's a good report on a chap in Wales who's done a nice resto on an RD04L. Mostly a standard refit and refurb, but a cracking livery conversion from "shell-suit" to HRC R/W/B :) All that's best in modern...

    Looking for some advise on my engine. Jack failed while working on the restoration and back end of bike came crashing down on itself. The shock was out of the bike as well as the swing arm links, so when the jack failed there was nothing to hold the bike's end.... When I was back to work on the...
