    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


    6 Months for a restoration? too much time bro. Dismantling the bike will take only a day max. Once dismantled you can give the parts for external works like buffing, chroming, painting, wheel alignment, Reboring etc whch can be given at a time as it does not depend on each other. All the above process may take a week or more depending on their busy schedule. Meanwhile you can procure the parts also. As you know RX 100 parts are very easily available in market. These activities can be done on weekends and within 2 or 3 weekends your bike will be ready to roar....
    Happy & Safe Riding to All

    3 months Pre-Inspection? Could you please elaborate what is planned for this 3 months? IMO a detailed durability validation shouldn't take 3 months of time.
    The part which you inspect and validate to be "OK" for painting / platting by beginning of October may corrode and turn scrap by end of December.

    I agree with you Vimal. Since the monsoon in approaching shortly, wanted to do build slowly. Don't want to take any risk as we were already flooded last year with heavy rainfall.
    Carrying on the procurement part first. I am very keen on understanding the restoration part thoroughly which will be helping me to maintain the bike for a longer duration.

    3 Months Pre-Inspection was planned inclusive of procuring all OEM parts Sathish. As I will be held with my work schedules and commitments for next couple of months will be doing the build slowly.

    - Check and search for Genuine OEM parts.
    - Inspect parts with available of any equivalent quality parts or higher.
    - Try to see if I could do any corrections with any faults or upgrade like electrical systems,

    Congrats Boss for the handsome bike.. Wishes and support for the restoration.
    I don't encourage buying nut bolt kit, but u can find some surprise parts in kit which would be missing in the bike... Head light holder better use new one, as it get rusted easily..
