    They tell me I do too, Dave. But, like that bike, I'm only good as a parts and information source now.

    Always a bonus to have the 'breaks' certified...

    He does say 'Or near offer'. Maybe move the decimal point one position to the left. That's quite near!

    Jeezuz. You've foolishly invested waaay too much in a bitza but then think it is worth selling for a premium! Still needs engineer to fit unspecified swingarm to match wheel, then shocks to suit, spacers, brake etc.

    Then you need the other bits engineered. Airbox for starter.
    Then you need to check electrics probably rewire from scratch.
    No pipe shown. 125 pipe not right. Build one is pretty much only option. Design and construction expenditure huge.
    Then you need to tune it which less people can do these days. 38mm carb is actually too big. Way too big really.
    Then you need to LVV certificate it for bigger engine (over 15%) and other mods

    Bear in mind I've done all the above for my 500. I'd say he's about 40% finished where it stands. And it's still a dt175!

    That's the 'talk' grooving (spelling intentional).
    Viewing on tablet rather than phone I do see a pipe. What is going on with the paint? And brakes? MIA? But with front M/C from the ark?
    Pegs not road friendly. VIN plate painted over plus you'll need to hid the enormous LVV plate. Rear wheel not shown?

    And barrel probably junked by exhaust port. That is terrible in high Def. Just butchered by a Ninnie.

    They're called "Singh slots" to be technical. Personally I've never seen the point in a 2T of squirting a stream of unburned,oily mixture at the plug.
    Yeah, the top edge of the exhaust port looks a tad shall we say, agressive. Ring life would be short.
    Anyone heard of the named porting service ?

    i do like the throttle barrel and the clutch lever with its mag like chromate finish and excentric adjuster but i dont think its ball ended .


    Edit okay they are brass and not ball ended..... go steam punk i guess.........Kustom tech master cylinder brake and clutch brass levers ,vintage brass throttle

    Holey shit look at the price...
    https://school-of-cool.com/en/produc...num-brass-raw/
    That is $364 NZD plus freight for the clutch lever and perch.

    That brake lever and MC dave is NZD $740 plus freight.

    I love the finish that vapour blasting gives the exterior of the engine bits. If I was to fart around with another old bike I would get that done.
