Update to Vintage Honda MX 4 stroke build
3 Attachment(s)
I am 90% done with the honda XL rebuild for a vintage mx bike. I posted the start on October 29th.

The rear shocks are on order but have not arrived as yet. The same is true with my down pipe.

The motor is rebuilt and in the frame, minus the carb. We found an airbox that will work and it is currently being modified to fit.

I got the seat redone and added a bit of foam to it to make it a "GP" seat. For a sixty year old, 6ft 2 guy having a taller seat helps between sitting and standing.

The handle bars are GP bend with a 2 inch bar riser.

I went with Michelin Star Cross's for the tires.

Looks great!! Good job on the hubs too. I'm starting restoration on 30yr old hubs and see lots of sanding in my future lol

looking forward to seeing it with the rear shocks and downpipe! Thumbs up!

The Hammerite rims are interesting as well.
