1990 Honda CR 125 Hillclimb bike project
How to install Kawasaki H-2 750 engine
bike. Strip it
down.. Cut it
in half to make it long enough for the new engine to fit Hold the
engine in place to line up the sprockets and swingarm pivot with
temporary braces good
eyeballing required Weld in
some temporary braces to keep it in line get it
straight now.. Fill in
the gaps. Get the
motor straight, mounts are next. Basic
black. Goes with everything. Don't forget to clean and lube all those
pivots.. Shock ends, swingarm bushings. Hard
part is done now. Trial
fit seat, tank. Make mounts for fender, battery box. Starting
to look like a bike again.
Displacement increase-125cc x 6 = 750cc Custom
box for battery, "total loss" ignition. RD 350
coils and new brackets, wiring leave
room for the pipes! Staple
on the seat cover. Genuine Imitation Leather. First
race is coming up.. Trying
to make three expansion chambers fit where one should be.
cut/weld. burn arm. repeat several times. Fuel
tank mount. Fiberglass Bultace tank from 70's era with Puch moped fuel
cap. I hate
running the pipes low as they seem to attract boulders, but this
project has to end someday. New
brake pedal for rear wheel and extended footpeg. E-Z
break rear fender mount for the inevitable loopage.I -never- crash, but
just in case. A spritz
of paint, and here we are. I like
it. And it sounds great. Now to
install the hydralic clutch master/slave and grow some balls so I can
hold it wide open like in the "old days"
