OK, after what seems like ages, we think we have the frame ready to go to the powder coaters.
Lots of work went into cutting out, fabricating, reinforcing and welding up the new tubes and gussets.
Frame has been prepped, and now needs a good sandblast, zinc dipping and a full, rich coat of gloss black.

Pic below of subframe gusset.  Both entirely replaced including crush tube, plate and 45* bend (with drain hole).  Peg tubes inserted the length of the subframe and all fully tig welded.

The same with the gusset below.  A strong back running internally the length of the frame, rusty sections cut out and entire new gusset fabricated and blended in, with new drain hole.

And finally the finished frame ready to get fresh paint after 37 years of neglect....

This is going up to Southside powder coaters tomorrow, together with the G's pegs, bars and other bits, and an XR75 frame and nickers nackers..
Thanks to my old Pa for helping with this and also all the guys on the forum here for ideas and advice...

More pics soon...

I wouldn't be dropping my price any lower , if I were you . IT 200s are a good Vinduro bike and yours is well worth the asking price . A big percentage of this forum are cheapskates and want something good or rare , for next to nothing . In my experience , you are better off putting a free add in Just Bikes , or Gumtree . Just got to be aware of scammers on Gumtree ( like the guy who works on a drill rig and can't be contacted ).
For Sale / Ohlins shock CR250 90/91, ktm 250/300 96/97

I have a Ohlins shock to suit a KTM 250/300 96/97, and also fits a CR250 90/91. Needs a service (and if fitting to a CR, need to take out thin spacer fitted in order to make same free length as Honda shock.) I had one of these fitted to my 91 CR250, and worked amazingly well, everyone who rode it was very impressed in the shock. $350 located in Bendigo and I will post at cost no problem.
