    XR100r project for fall/winter 2021

    Nice, it'll be running in no time.

    It runs and rides now. The shifter needs to be replaced and the front rotor is warped. Both are already ordered.

    "Cafe Racer" such a loose term! Craigslist "Gem" of the week!

    Small bikes are a blast, which is why I have an XL75, 140cc pitbike and the cr80 with a 120cc xr100 motor. But they aren't worth thousands to me.

    For how clean it is that is a reasonable price compared to a rusted locked up ct70 with no title for $1500. I'd buy a grom before that though.

    UFO ships plastics fast. Waiting on new radiators and hoses and this thing should be good to go.

    It's starting to look like a dirtbike again. Wheels are back on with new tires, engine is back together, plastics are ordered, and the 91 fork guards are almost adapted.

    That's fine. I'm not worried about this ending up a general dirtbike thread.

    Yeah, I have a 97 CR80 with a 120cc xr100 motor in it. It's a blast, but a little small on longer trails. I got rid of an 08 ktm 250sxf because it was just way more bike than I need. I bought this one originally to swap an xr200 motor in, but since I got it to run before pulling the motor I...

    Yeah, this bike is currently getting a mechanical restoration while not getting painted. I'll either sell the bike, or if I can't get asking price I'll sell the motor and swap in the xr motor. I would have preferred a mid 90s cr125, but everyone wants too much for ratted out piles.

    Front wheel is laced up with new spokes. Next up is the rear wheel.

    XR100r project for fall/winter 2021

    Parts in general have been slow since covid started. It took a dealer I worked at 4 months to get a starter relay for an MT03. Partzilla is annoyingly slow at shipping when everything is supposedly "in stock." The little XRs are great playbikes. With the low 1st it's easy for people to...

    XR100r project for fall/winter 2021

    The xr80 and xr100 transmissions have different ratios. A lot of people switch to xr80 trans for the taller 1st gear. The XR 80 has 2.992, 1.823, 1.40, 1.130, 0.96 with primary at 4.437. The XR100 has 3.083, 1.882, 1.400, 1.130, 0.923 with primary 4.437. If you get the takegawa 5 disc clutch...

    I want to indoctrinate my friends and family...

    I have a chinese pitbike. It's a taotao dbx1, 140cc 4 speed. It was $1100 shipped to my door. It's got plenty of power and seems to be holding up well. I have about 10hrs on it, oil is still pretty clear. My neighbor has one and has more hours than I do on mine, he also crashes it atleast...
