RM250 Coach Project 96 RM250

Received my powervalve bearings after almost 4 weeks of waiting. Got a little more work to do to tidy up the engine and it will be ready to drop in the frame. Then it'll be taking everything apart, lubing up/replacing swing arm, wheel, and steering bearings. Then new tires, pads, brake fluid, and fork oil and I think it will be ready. I'm just knocking tasks off one at a time. Hopefully have it ready soon.
 
I made some more progress! Got the power valves fully assembled, found some missing bolts, and got the engine sitting in the frame. This feels like a HUGE milestone. I'm just picking away at it, as I get motivation to do so. Next is gonna be swing arm and linkage! Stay tuned.

Made some progress on my bike, just a little. Got the front brakes sorted, got a new front tire installed, and my buddy was helping me with rear linkage, most of the bearings were good, but the smallest joint on the linkage appeared to be missing a needle, and it tore up the rest of the needles so I'll need to replace that. And of course, pics of the 88 125 just because.

More progress today! Got the rear end reassembled! Found some more missing pieces. So I now have rolling bike. I need a swing arm nut, kill switch, clutch lever and perch. So, getting really close to putting it all back together.
