Ideas for a restoration project?


Recommended Posts

Hi I'm not sure if this is the right section or not but I'm looking for some sort of non running motorbike which would be ideal for me to learn how they work and hopefully restore it?

I'm hoping to do it since I'm no longer in college and need some sort of project I can spend my work wage on and get that feeling of bringing a bike back to life =D

I'm not looking for any hard projects just simple bikes would be good to learn on, if any of you have any in the North West region that'd be good, or just general ideas on what bikes I should look out for?


I own a Peugeot XR6 which is in really bad shape but as I've already wasted a lot on the bike a I don't particularly wont to restore but probably will as a last resort!

I can upload pictures of it if you want to see a pretty bashed up little bike! (although some of you may get shocked on how I got it to that stage!)


Thanks for your rime guys and gals! =D

you are better off finding a bike that runs but needs work as engines can cost a fortune to sort out and so can electrics so at least if it runs you know its got half a chance of being rebuilt

 

I'd go along with that, I started a project 4 years ago, only been able to work on it for about 3 months of that time due to tons of c&%p piled in my garage by 'children' for the past 3.5 years. Now got it cleared and I realise what a monster of a job I've got.

Same reason, wanted to learn how they go together and get knowledgeable on the mechanics of a bike but this is a nightmare!

Wish I'd gone for something that only needed a little work.

Hi, I've decided on restoring my Peugeot XR6 not to big of a job mainly cosmetic but I've got someone with experience helping me complete it now so it's not to bad I'm hoping if this project goes well I can do it again sometime in the foreseeable future I wish you the best of luck though on your project =D
