VT plate and 0.50 over piston and rings came in today. Time to ship out the cylinder for boring.



Awesome!

Looking good Nick. This is a very cool little bike.

It got held up for a few weeks with the hurricane and I sent all the hardware out for plating...I have a few more things to paint and then put it all together hopefully before Barber.

Do it!

I'm actually working on 2 rv125s. Both have a high and low gear reducer with missing parts. One has a tc125 motor. (Same thing I guess) looks like both need at least rings, I'm guessing a bore also. Do you know a good ace for parts besides eBay? Thanks

Do you happen to have a spare air pump??

I got most of my parts from eBay. Piston and ring sets are about $35 from Thailand and my cylinder is getting send up to Ohio for a bore.

Mine is the first year with the 5 speed transmission, but my CT104 has the dual range, pretty cool.

Yep looks good though, mine should look like that after a bit of paint and some assembly.

Would you be able to get me some measurements on that battery cover? They are another unobtainium part so I figure I will probably 3D print one.
