    I will tear it apart and restore it. New plastics, new tires(maybe aluminum wheels), new seat, new exhaust and new motor if needed. I decided to stay away from changing suspension. Fuel tank don't appear to be in too bad of shape. I'll find out when i remove the paint.

    Completely disassembled! I plan to have frame, forks, axle spacers, brake drum, brake drum dust cover, wheel hubs powder coated black. I have $800 worth of goodies on order from Spangler's and about $500 on order from some ebay auctions. Still need to think about and order a motor, exhaust, handlebars and a few other misc items.

    I order a Piranha 90cc semi, exhaust, handle bars and kill switch from Wholesale Cycle a few days ago. When i get motor i'll post pictures of all the new goodies i bought for restoration. About $1,500 in goodies not including $450 for purchase price of atv. I may buy one of those fancy aluminum starter recoil assembles things that Spangler sells.

    Heading to Harbor Freight to buy a sandblaster and air compressor. Getting tired of spending a week removing paint from frames. Removing the paint from the atc 70 frame is another level of difficult. I have 99% of the paint already removed, but i think going over it with sand blaster would be good way to make completely ready for paint. I've also decided to build a garage/shop for these projects. I got a Gladiator brand work bench, storage cabinet and roll around tool box for christmas. I plan to organize my new shop in the Gladiator storage collection. They even have refrigerators and trash compactors to match there tool boxes and cabinets. Now i will have a man cave

    Sounds like you had a nice Xmas and a nice start to your new man cave. Congrats! Looking forward to seeing photos of your new goodies when you get them. My XMAS was good too with my wife getting me a new 70 billet chain tensioner and another pull start assembly from Spangler's for one of my Piranha 150cc engines.

    So what carb, intake and air filter are you going to run on your new 90cc engine?

    I had my Piranha 90cc equipped ATC 70 out for a 1 1/2 hr romp in the snow new years eve and that motor still impresses me with its torque and smooth power delivery for 2nd gear wheelies. You will like yours too.

    Where did you get the fuel tank? It looks like an aftermarket replacement one for a '79-'87 Z50R.

    That's the Hondaatc70.com bubble tank conversion for the ATC70.

    Nice! I bet it feels like XMAS when all the parts started showing up at your door step! I just got my big bore 114cc race head, cylinder and high compression piston from Spangler's for my Piranha 90 engine. Can't wait to install it.

    Good choice on parts, that thumb throttle will work great on that carb. I run the same Spangler's extended wave foot shifter, it works great with the foot pegs you have there. I spaced my foot pegs down another 1" with spacers/ longer bolts and it's way more comfortable for my long legs. That exhaust will have a nice deep throaty tone to it too. If you want the pipe really shinny try some 1000 grit sandpaper then some Mother's aluminum polish.

    Just be sure to straighten out that center crossbar on the Piranha handlebars, looks like someone drunk installed it in the dark. LOL

    You my want to swap the 13 tooth front sprocket out for a 14 tooth with that motor and those tires. BTW, the Holeshot tires always look killer on the 70s (and they truly are on your back and arms!) but once you get tired from running such rock hard tires shoot me a PM and I can help suggest some that are way more comfortable for actual riding.

    Lots of cool parts, now get to work! LOL

    Thanx for info. I was wondering what sprocket would be best up front. As slow as i will drive the 70 those tires should be fine.
