This Bultaco 125cc Pursang has been sitting around for awhile waiting for a new paint job and general spruce up. We think it looks great with the new decals and paint.
1982 GSX 1100 E............came to us as a good runner but need some TLC and an upgrade of some parts and new paint work. Finished up going in the retro Silver colour with Green decals for the period. Most parts were changed for new such as electrics, rotors, discs etc. This bike ended up going to a good home to an owner that loves the retro style bikes.
This project has been sitting around for many years in a friends shed. It's a 1973 Yellow Tank 125 CZ Motocross. It came to us in pieces and in a very poor state. So far we have rebuilt the engine with many new components, new wheels and brakes, frame is powder coated, new fork tubes, tank and panels re-painted. The engine number is 0000259. Didn't mean much to us at the time, but sources informed us it was one of the first batch of 300 ever built with a slightly longer piston push rod, hence called a "long stroke motor". We endeavoured to keep this bike as original as possible, even down to the original footpegs, generally called "Ankle Breakers", sourcing original style handle bars.
Well the bike is finally finished and even got it running to prove it does work. Even though we do not have any plans to sell this as a racer, it will probably end up a show bike on someones wall. Being rare, gives it that much more appeal to anyone interested in its purchase. Cost of this build has been quite high, but the enjoyment we got from doing such a great job was worth it.

Yamaha XS 250 1984. Not a bad result this turned out. Currently licenced and on the road and a real hoot to ride!
With a budget in mind, we decided to go the respray on Hyosung 650GT. The client insisted on Matt Black. We seemed to have nailed it. Looks good, clean and everyone was happy with the result.
A general clean up, replaced many screws and bolts which were mismatched through its life and some just covered in rust. New mirrors, bar ends and grips gave it a more sporty look. When we stripped the bike back, we were surprised at the quality of the chassis and engineering. They seem to have a tag placed on them coming from China, but we could not fault it. The engine I believe is a copy of a Suzuki and if maintenance is kept up, could not see why a decent mileage couldn't be done on one of these bikes.
After modifications to the frame to fit a sidecar it came to us for a rebuild and paint. It's a class of their own these bikes/cars! An offroad Adventure sidecar. Purpose built with reinforced frame and special rear wheel to suit a car tyre. Bike was stripped down, painted, powder coat some parts, rebuilt with our own touch using new for old bolts and nuts etc. Then it was off to build and fit the sidecar. This was done by a specialist who has build some 25 of these offroaders. So far it has performed flawlessly on many long trips.
This bike came in for a clean and polish without taking everything apart. Being an older bike, there was lots of surface rust on the chrome bits which we buffed out with elbow grease and some parts we were able to dismantle to really buff out on the wheel. Found some bolts needed replacing which we did with either high tensile or stainless. Other issues of rust in the brake pedal which meant a tear down and clean and grease up. Operating smoothly now. Left all the paint work as is due to the age and just a gentle buff up with polish.
Harris Triumph 750 Bonneville. Restore to a "roller" stage as the client will be rebuilding motor in due course. Other components such as shockies, wheels will be sourced at a later stage by the client and returned to complete the restoration.
This little gem came in the for a clean and restore. Replace anything old and tired like bolts, nuts etc. repaint some parts and lots of polishing. It means a total tear down and rebuild with attention to detail.
The finished product looks great as all components were replaced "New for Old". A complete respray of the frame and swing arm complimented the finish as the battery had leaked all over the frame and stand resulting rusted parts which was not acceptable. Fenders, headlight, reflectors, brake hubs, engine housings and forks were all polished to add a great touch. If the owner ever decides to sell, it would be a chance to own a complete original Benelli 250 Super Sport.
