1985 TRX 125 Resto

I had some pics lined out to start another thread on a 125. Found this locally and wanted to get another one for the kids after I sold the previous 86 125. This one will be a total restoration. Disassembly has gone ok. Should remove the engine this weekend. Tomorrow I'll put up some more pictures of where I'm at.

Here are some other pics from this weeks disassembly. Hopefully by Friday night I'll have the engine out and be down to the bare frame. I've got to see whats wrong with the motor. I got 2 motors with this (however the other one is fully taken apart. LOL. However, it'll be a good hands on engine to look at and reference to, for the most part).

Tagging. I have a 125 at a buddy's that he picked up for me a while back. I still haven't seen it in person. Honestly I'd forgotten about it until I saw this post. LOL

Tagging as well. Loosing bikes because ya forgot is normal and expected isn't it? I lose tools I loaned out and then can't remember who I gave them to.

The little 125 sounds like a fun project. Are you gonna let the kids help you resto it? Great opportunity to get 'em interested in learning how stuff works and how to maintain them.

Yes, my son has been wrenching with me and learning what tools are what and why we do things in a certain order. LOL. My daughter (this one is hers) will get the job of degreasing it and part of painting as well. LOL. HOWEVER, she's got the great job of doing her chores and earning her money to purchase parts that we need for the TRX. Responsibility and accountabilty. You work hard and once you have them to take care of them. So thats her main job on this one. Teach them a trade and hard work. I'm trying to learn as well. Hopefully they'll be smarter than me. LOL

So, three pair of safety glasses, three pairs of rubber gloves, three big smiles on three busy & happy faces. Wish I could hang out with you kids myself!

Well, didn't get much done last night. Pretty busy night with the familia. Anyway, looking through the parts boxes that I was giving when I bought the trx125 i came across a couple missing pieces that weren't attached. I believe the originals were sold, hence, them not being on the TRX. They are rough, and I'm sure they've been exposed to whether. I was curious if the stator is salvagable or if If I'm up the creek. Thanks
