    1982 ATC 70 Resto

    New here. I've been reading these posts for awhile and decided to join. Last Christmas I picked up a TRX 70 for my kids. It was leaking oil everywhere, so i tore the motor down and rebuilt it this past Spring.

    From there on, I was officially addicted. I picked up this 1982 ATC 70 for $150 on Craigslist and began the rebuild. I am trying to keep it all Honda OEM parts. My next one will be moded. Here it is in May:

    Here is where I am at now. Powder coated the frame and wheels; sent all the chrome out to be redone at Hanlin Plating in Virginia; sent the tank to Moyer Renu in Pennsylvania to be blasted and coated; and I just finished painting the tank. I used Color Rite in R109 passion Red. It came out pretty good.

    Looks good. I see you live in the DMV area. $150 is a steal for this area.

    Yeah, the guy who does my powder coating said he saw a guy recently pay $900 for one in northern Virginia that was in about the same shape as my 82.

    I picked this 84 up recently for $100 on CL. I got lucky and caught it within about 30 minutes of it being posted. That is a new unmounted Ohtsu tire that it came with. Still had the sticker although it was weathered. I might put the tire on ebay since i don't have a decent set and see what it goes for. You have to love that gas tank.

    Damn $100? That's hella cheap for our area. I paid $250 for my 82 a few years ago. The old girl hasn't seen much action since I got my R55. lol

    I still need to wet sand the front fender and paint the recoil, although I almost like it better with the older recoil look.

    Looking good so far. A front fender will really finish her off.

    The addiction continues... Scored these two a few days ago. I dont know which to start on!?!?! I want to do a big bore/racing cam/stroker crank/heavy duty clutch combo from Spanglers. Not sure whether to put it in the 84 or 85.

    Both are 85's. I didn't catch it when the guy sold them to me and told me the black seat was an 84. Of course, the tanks were a dead giveaway. Anyway, I started with the black seat 85. New points and a good coil i had laying around and got her started. Rings were bad, so I ended up tearing the motor apart and putting in a new cylinder and piston, etc. Bent the frame back, got a straight set of bars off of ebay, new bearings and seals in the axles, new brake pads, recovered the seat, and put together a set of Ohtsu's I had laying around from other bikes and she's back on the trail. During all of that, of course the recoil rope broke, so i rebuilt that. Just in time for last week's snow storm! It was a blast. So nice to shift up too.
