    There may not be "market value" but there is definitely vintage and worthwhile value in doing what you are doing. I love the older bikes with the flatter frame design and older two shock suspension. But, that is cause old guys like old stuff and like to see it revitalized for younger folks enjoyment and historical value.- Bobby E.
    Live to ride or ride to live that is the question.

    I plan to sell the bike when i'm done restoring it. I'm just going to try to sell it for what i got in it. I think i can finish it with about $800 in it. If everything goes well this project I'm thinking the next bike will be like a XR 75, Z50 or a early CRF( 70-125 hp)

    Swing arm and triple clamp put back on bike. Ordered new grommets for bike yesterday. I guess next thing is to do is polish up forks. I got a inner fender off eBay. It came yesterday. Haven't taken it out of box yet, but it looked to be in a lot better shaper than the one that was on bike. It was badly dis colored and melted.

    Well i have two problems! I can not get the spokes to clean up an shine. There is some rust on the rims, but not so bad to replace them. I guess i will take wheel apart and paint hubs black and replace the spokes. I might as wheel get the correct rear hub. The one i have is from a CR 80. The sprocket bolts were rubbing against the inside of the swing arm. I'm also preparing air cleaner box for some primer and black paint.

    If you're interested, I will sell you the complete wheels off the bike pictured below. The wheels are originally off a '74 XR75, but they will fit all years of XR75's and XR80's up through '84. I spared no cost on them. The hubs and rims were powder-coated black then relaced with new spokes. I also installed new bearings and new tires that have less than a dozen races in dirt only. I upgraded the bike with XR100 wheels last summer and don't really have a use for these wheels now. If you're interested, send me a PM.

ID:	153482 Painted.....Now back to the wheels. Decided replacing spokes on wheels would be too expensive. Trying not to put too much money in bike. At his time i'm going to remove paint from the hubs and repaint black. Clean rims best i can. There in pretty good shape. I'm going to try drilling on rear sprocket bolts. Then i'll get a Cr 80 rear sprocket. I'll then get some allen head type bolts that have a concaved head. So the head won't stick out to much. And rub frame. If this fails i'll buy a used XR 75-80 rear hub.
