Poult (1980 SR250)
« on: Oct 26, 2017, 13:03:23 »
So I decided on a name for this silly thing, So new thread?

I couldn't figure out how rename the old one so please be mercifull mods if this isn't allowed.

I also can't figure out what style of bike this is, Cafe, Bobber, Brat? what do you guys think?

---- most recent update

Cut those extra loops off of the frame that had been used for the rear foot pegs

...and remade the muffler bracket for that same reason.



--- old ones

I was more of less pushed into "doing something" by a family friend, and it's been a decent way to waste time

This was the bike on the 3rd of October



This was to 4th



The 6th



9th



...and the 15th of October



---







---

nothing really visual in newer pictures.
'silly' things like oiling the air filter and adjusting valves.
Getting a real battery. etc, etc...







--- Alittle about me

25 years old, went to school for drafting and engineering
Been told I have a knack for it.
First bike I've worked one, first time welding, many firsts

--- My dad

My father has many bikes. Mine lives in his shop
here is his two 'bike rooms'

Havn't managed to do a whole lot, switched jobs so I've kinda come home and wanted to just relax and it's been cold out so it's not as 'fun' to mess around cutting things apart

..have a picture of what we did to clean up the kick-stand mount some.



and another one of the bike before I started messing with it

someone might like to see it with just the seat changed

hard to choose between riding one last time before the snow flies or painting the front forks.
