We’re not some elaborate restoration channel and we don’t pretend to be. In fact, we explore the opposite route here - cheap and dirty. Just how good of a motorcycle restoration job can you do with some treatments, sandpaper and a whole lotta wax on and wax off?

  • I love your restoration but I would attest the original graphics to the Yamaha dirt racing star of the era, Bob "Hurricane" Hannah, not their road racing star, Kenny Roberts. I got to race the banana yellow YZ250 of that era, and of course my pit bike was a matching YZ80! BTW your hockey comment was fightin' words! U-S-A, U-S-A !!

  • Why would you 'fake hide' and 'fake find' the bike? It was also clearly 'fake dirty' freshly coverd with some dirt by hand. In my opinion there is no need to fool the people. I like your chanal but this was some fake and dramatic BS to promote some cleaning products. You could do so without fooling people. @FortNine

  • Pro tip: When “dousing the carb with cleaner”, counterintuitively you want to avoid using carb cleaner. Couldn’t tell if you were still using the electrical contact cleaner in the video but I’d be leery of that too. The problem is the solvent in carb cleaner will attack any rubber bits inside the carb like o-rings gaskets and needle seat for the float. Instead, use automotive brake cleaner which will not harm butyl rubber or neoprene. It also blasts the dirt a lot harder out of those big cans.

  • Another trick to get the rubber grips off the bars is to blast them with hairspray, and they just pull right off after that for some reason

  • I've bought a few crap bikes. A Suzuki ts50x. 1986. And a Honda xr250r 1996. Where almost no parts of the bikes are usable. In most cases the engine ran ok and they had MOT. (UK) this bike looked worse than my bikes yet was actually better mechanically.
