Quite the rig you've made there F-man! Like the tie dyed frame look too. :P From the tilt on that seat, well, I don't know what to make of that seat :shock:

Lo! Thanks DG! Yeah, from a short test ride on the pavement, I wasn't happy with it. But, I'll take it on a proper ride, and see how I feel about it. But that was after a long ride on the xr250.

It feels way better than it did in stock form. Can't wait to get it out on the trail.

If you have an air compressor and a little angle "air" grinder, you can get those little scotch brite type pads and get the rest of that frame cleaned up pretty nicely...The pads will also remove any deeper scratches and make it ready for any polishing if you wanted to do that...you can get those pads in most local auto parts store...i think 3M makes them

Don't do a thing to that frame. Except maybe clear over it as is. I think it looks awesome as is!!

Lol. Thanks guys. I actually just wanted it bare aluminum with a satin clear coat on it. I might go back later and finish cleaning it up. I kinda like the frame like this too. Almost like the rat-rod look. But closer to the way the euro guys do it.

No time to ride it as of yet. Have my son with me, and don't have anything small enough for him to ride yet. Taking it on the trail on Friday.

Actually that's not rat rod, that's derelict.
