Thanks guys, love doing the rebuilds, but they can be a nightmare sometimes when you run into problems.
Took all the parts up to Southside Powder Coaters in WA this morning.  They are going to do the G frame, XR75 frame, handlebars, spring, 2 sets pegs, airbox, brake arms and various other parts shown in the pic below. Thats blast, zinc prime, and gloss black final coat.. $300.  Thought that was a bargain.. pick up next Tuesday, so pics then..

Cheers,

Finally finished the frame and can post some pics. Came back from powder coaters in almost mint condition. After all the work i had done, they blasted, zinc primed and gloss black powder coated the frame. 
There were i couple of minor imperfections which were touched up with 2k gloss... and then it was ready to wipe down, mount on its bike stand and take some pics..

This G now has a decent base to start the rebuild. 







Cheers,

Its been a while and the project has been on the back burner.
I do have several projects on, but i always like to keep moving forward.
Anyway, Geoff, at GMC has managed to jig up a YZ125G cone pipe and muffler.  And its a belter.
Still to be trial fitted and run, it certainly looks the business. Built for top and mid range grunt, without taking too much from the bottom, the cone pipe just looks factory and fast sitting there.



This project is officially back on tracks.  Geoff took a lot of time and effort to build this pipe and he is also doing a muffler to suit this application.  Gotta take my hat of to that.  And its all at a great price and build quality.

More pics coming soon hopefully,

Cheers,

YZ125G bike project is officially on track and being rebuilt as a runner.

New spoke kits ordered to rebuild the wheels, as original nipples seized and spokes are loose.
New tank decal kits ordered to add a bit of pizzaz.
New alloy bars orders. (originals are being stored for a future rebuild).
Shock has gone into shop for a rebuild with new bumper and seal head.
New fork gaitors ordered. (originals being saved), and new seals to be fitted.

All bearings are original and will be cleaned, inspected and regreased.
New airfilter to be fitted.

Other parts have already been blasted and powder coated.
All axles, nuts and bolts etc to be buffed.

Bike to be reassembled with new GMC cone pipe and muffler.  Jet as necessary.

We hope to have her up and running for Christmas.   Stay tuned for updates and pics,

Cheers,
