    So while ago I bought a few bikes in a deal that seemed more than fair, in the group was a 1992 kx80 with a motor in bits and a frame that had been sitting outside for apparently 10 years.

    As expected things like the seat and plastics were damaged , cracked or no existent , wheels and tires were less than ideal and all the other box and dice you would expect

    so I did some research and apparently these are quite sort after in some circles

    so took it to my mad mate and we had a few cans and what started as a “what do you think” turned into a well let’s get it down to a frame and see what happens

    fast forward and things as expected are way out of hand but once your in it well your in it so been on the hunt for the list of bits it’s missing etc

    so parts that were salvageable were cleaned then wire wheeled, prepped and paint matched

    so the engine went to Craig as by recommendation from @kriffsta

    and the build started to happen

    we are trying to be as period correct as possible but as the crime on the front forks were shot, I came across a 2008 front end for a complete steal, so atm that’s the only part that isn’t period correct that we know of

    anyways pictures to follow

    also found the original advertising pamphlet and that’s being re printed to attach with the bike when complete

    the plan is to fully restore and then take to dust hustle after covid as a usable resto and hopefully not take it home if someone offers the right price , mind you though we don’t know what that is.

    so here’s so pictures as it sits now as I wait for parts to arrive for the zxr build 99FEA263-6BBF-4688-8771-255AC4905144.jpeg C3948B79-6684-42B1-AB04-A79CB3234FC3.jpeg 9C0D1E56-7B8B-4852-82AB-D80CA3EE3B8F.jpeg 09DD8BEC-D776-4C4D-975E-81A032C80548.jpeg D1C0A887-C8FE-437E-AE31-A2457AA55167.jpeg A33C6C2F-D269-4CFB-AC83-C05AABE51C0A.jpeg 67229FC5-2066-4108-A14C-05A847866266.jpeg E44BE6A6-0CCD-43C7-8DDB-EB551CB24A77.jpeg A6E0A526-E2CB-4B42-91A4-7CD8E442B06B.jpeg 50CA84B8-F41B-45DF-BEDC-2075AF45C40A.jpg 05540437-29F3-4FE9-B455-B287E13E40B0.jpg
