Amazing bikes and quality work is an understatement, beautiful. Very envious. I'd love to get an older two-stoke dirt bike like a DT but can't find one. Yours make me want one even more. IT's are very nice too.

Thanks again, guys.  I used to restore early GM "A" & "G" body cars when I was in Fl..    49 years in the Sunshine State. 3 resessions later I told the wife this is it. We moved to Colorado, into a condo, and I didn't have a place to work..I.E. garage, so I rented a bay @ Public Storage and made a "Man Cave". So started the bike gig. This is the first bike I did. LOL I did it on the patio of our condo...very basic tear down, clean,paint reassemble. My son rode it for the season and I listed it on the Bay. I had 500 into it..sold on the Bay for 2500.00 to a guy in Cypress. THAT got my attention! At this point in time, I didn't know that there was vendors out there suppling decals for these vintage bikes. Baby steps.

WOW

 I'd be happy if I had even 1/4 of your ability...as soon as my shop is done I'm going to TRY to start restoring a couple of bikes....you set the standard of what to aspire to.  My issue is I have the desire but not the mechanical aptitude, but I'll try not to let it stop me!

Those dirt bikes look too nice to ever see dirt again!  They're all stellar and I especially like that works Kawi.   Just absolutely fantastic work!

Thank You both for the kind words. It is a labor of love that I enjoy.
                           I strive to get these machines back to factory correct for our children to see. History is slowly disappearing with everyone "Modding"  bikes and cars.  It's really a turn off to see a beautifully restored 39 Ford with a small block chevy under the hood.
                            Being a victim of on line bashing in this room/site/board, I will be posting another journey on the restoration road.  Again, thanks for the thumbs up.

Very nice work.  I only hope my RD250 can one day come out half as good as some of those bikes.  Hope to see you post up a new Resto thread soon.  :cheers:
