    So the bike has been striped down, im thinking about painting the frame a different color but not sure how it would go with the black swing arm.

    I think any colour matches with the black swingarm
    New paint will make it look a million bucks

    Yeah its been a bit of a tough decision but ive decided to just stick with a black frame and white plasics to make it stand out more.

    I dont know, ive just allways had a crome or alloy swing arm on a coloured steel frame bike. Just couldn't picture a black swing arm going with a green or blue frame

    Hell yeah man the black engine covers are definitely something that's going to happen when I get around to doing it lol.

    But shes all back together now its looking wicked and with all the wheel bearings head stem bearings swingarm bearings chain soaked in oil the bike is so much easier to move around, where as before it was a lot harder this also makes a difference riding seems to pop up wheelies easier now also with the clutch and accelerator cables lubed makes and absolute World of difference!! Couldnt be more happy with the way it turned out. here's a few pics of the bike.

    episode 3 of my pit bike restoration is up, check out the process to restoring a pitbike. whole process recorded on time lapse.

    on a side note guys. the longest part of this job was timelapseing every step of the build, and then from there uploading to computer, converting 100s of thousands of pictures into timelaps videos (avi file). then editing it into a video that's not 2 days long lol. for example about 1 and half hours is about 10 000 pictures. so yeah the most effort for this build went into making a video on the whole process.


    Not saying give me a pat on the back for my work! haha, but just saying there was a lot of effort put into the video side of things, im actually so glad its over lol!


    well heres the link to the video. hope you's enjoy.

    Thanks man yeah happy as with it. All in all i vost me about 60 bucks for just paint supplies like grease and dirt remover sand paper flaper disk and the paint. Pretty much 99 percent of the bike original components were reused. Only new parts were the rear wheel bearings, new swing arm bearings, and new chain roller. The plasics are the original ones from 2008 lol just took the pit pro stickers off them haha.
