Hi, started this project nearly 4 years ago. 1971 Suzuki T125 Stinger all 15 horse power.
Biggest problem is finding good parts.
This is it when i picked the bike up.

Terrific job Ron. She looks amazing.

Looks like aqua blasting gave great results. Did you have more parts done Ron? I've been considering it for an upcoming project. Was it an expensive process?

The little Yam looks brilliant.

Hi John, aqua blasting doesn't cost that much more, gives a lot better finish
if you need to paint as well.
