    Thank you Isqh. I approached few brokers already to enquire abt the process and cost, they said it's not a big deal as they can do it vise versa and would cost approx 4k.

    All they need is RC Book and Form No.28 duly filed.

    Update : Pics on the current condition of the bike. (As it is pumping out a lot of white smoke, couldn't take out for a ride.)

    What bore is it running on? I mean the series? Before chroming the silencer it is better to get it decarbonised, as you were telling there is a lot of smoke.

    Its is G-2 Bore Kit.

    De-carbonize is definitely required as the bike was left unused for a long time. When I first fired the engine, it pumped out a lot of black oil through the silencer and exhaust with white smoke.

    Just make sure to be there when your silencer is being decarbonised, original RX100 silencers are in great demand today and many mechs just replace it with other ones.
    Are you planning to go for wine red? Also check out the original cherry red colour of 100. I guess wine red came with 135??(experts correct me if i am wrong) there are very few cherry red ones now. Attaching pic for reference.

    By default decarb will be done before chroming. People don't put a dirty silencer (or any part) inside the platting tank.

    Very well pointed out Sanjay. Its true that there are some instances I too heard some mechanics replacing RX 100 parts. Not to blame anyone hence decided to keep my hands-on this rebuild.

    Regarding the color, you are right cherry red was the stock color but looks too flashy for me so planned to go with wine red or Maroon.

    Outlook - This is what I desire for, after rebuild look. ( Treat for Eyes)

    Beautiful! Yes the cherry red will be a little flashy. However try to get the cylinder head, brake drums etc buffed instead of painting silver. As you can see in the earlier picture which i posted, the spare parts list, it did come with the buffed look. Many people nowadays paint the head too, in silver which no doubt looks good but buffed look would be definitely better! Keep updating.. looking forward to this one! All the best buddy!

    Thanks a lot Sanjay !!! Planning to do the build slowly as the weather here in Chennai going to be rainy and cold for couple of months. Overcautious on rust prevention !!!!! Point noted on parts to be buffed.

    Scheduled of Structure Approach :

    1. Collection of information on restoring the bike to stock model. (Exclusively from XBHP threads & folks). - All time lookout

    2. Strip or dismantle the bike to overlook the parts condition and life. - Hopefully by end of Sep'16

    3. Pre-Inspection of parts before Painting & Plating. ( Check with Sriram for source on Frame strength & Rigidity check) - (Oct'16 - Dec'16)

    4. Procure OEM Parts from various sources. (Consultation required from xbhp folks) - All time lookout

    5. Planning to touch the engine at last. (YTD on Engine re-boring) - Jan'17

    6. Perform assembly & fire the engine. - Feb'17

    Well planned! I too did the same thing. Finished rebuilding the engine 2 days ago. Currently breaking in.. making sure she doesn't go above 40kmph
