    Arrow The very Old RX100 (1986, Japan)

    I was not that much crazy in two wheelers. But things had changed when I came to know what is special with 2-Strokes from some of my friends, my brother and brother-in-law. And when I took a ride on my brother-in-law's RX100, me gt .
    Latter me became damn crazy on 2-wheelers especially 2-strokes, when ever I use to get a chance to ride a different bike, I don't use to miss that.....My eyes always watched 2-strokes and some special bikes on road.

    After completing my studies and getting into a job me decided to get a 2-stroke bike.
    The next thing was to decide which one I have to choose(RX100, RX135, RX-Z, Shogun,RD). RD of-course the hero, but I dropped that dream since the bike I could't find the bike with anyone easily and because of its high price

    Next my focus came to RX-Z, had some visits to Tamil Nadu, Dindigul (Done my Engineering in Tamil Nadu) in search of RZ-Z. My college Juniors owned RX-Zs and searched through some of the local workshops there. But I could't find any bike for which the quoted amount was reasonable when considering the condition of bike. When I asked for some beauties which I have seen with the juniors in my college, the reply was like ' I'm going to take this bike to my home after completing studies'.

    In between me told my brother-in-law to tell me if he is planning to sell the RX 100. Another great bike I have seen(owned by cousin brother) is Suzuki Shogun...great performer ...but because of the problem with the availability of spares me dropped the plan for shogun also.

    A year back me reached Nasik on deputation from my company. My hunt for RXs continued. But some of my friends there told me that well maintained RXs are having great demand, even I did't get much spare time there for the hunt because of the heavy work load and tight work schedule.

    My friends in Kerala recommended for 5-speed 135(reason was, the 5 speeder and great performer which I can get for less price when compared to RX-Z ) and they spotted some 135s for me. So me finally me decided to get a 5 speed RX135 and to choose the best one from the bikes spotted by my friends.

    The twist came when my brother-in-law ringed me and told that he is planning to sell the bike since he booked a new Yamaha FZ, so I can get the bike If i need. That time I did't think much and said 'YES I NEED'. My decision changed immediately from 135 to 100. It was only because

    *That was a bike I know pretty well
    *The Engine condition of the bike was ok
    *And the main reason was, It was a 1986 model JAPAN made RX100
    *I did't want to miss that bike, since Japan made 100s are hard to find now a days.

    After all, the bike reached my home some 5 months back.
    Colour - Black (Originally it was RED)
    Sale date -19/08/1986
    36L00,Y-2

    I love 135s and RX-Zs, RDs even Yezdi s ....Don't know what will be the end...my eyes get in seeing well maintained bikes (135s and RX-Zs, RDs ,Yezdi s).

    Here I'm starting a new thread, hope I will get all the help from seniors and great scholars here to keep my RX clean.

    Thanks Ram and prakhararya...

    The first thing I have focused was to make all the papers clean(Tax, Insurance, pollution certificate). Next I was in search for a good mechanic.

    The bike was fitted with signal lights and brake light written 'Rajdoot India' and the speedo written with 'RAJDOOT'.

    A month before I have replaced some parts and some minor works also done.... Regarding Engine and all, the mechanic told me like its in a good condition and it does't need to work on all those things.

    Since I'm just a beginner in the world of 2-strokes and all those mechanical stuffs, Just told only this much to the mechanic, 'I need to take him to the road like a showroom vehicle, that smoothness to be achieved. Thanks god, I have got a good mechanic,collected all the parts told by him and he had done it.


    The remaining work to be done in my plan are..

    1) Front chrome Mudguard
    2) Butterfly crash guard
    3) New Oil pump(Pricol)
    4) Engine painting
    5) 'YAMAHA' Stickers on Crank case
    6) New number plates with rubber bush for the rear one
    5) New Chain cover
    6) New rubber kit for Head n Block
    7) 90/100 light kit
    9) New fuel Tank
    10) Front Discs

    I will list all the parts which I had already replaced in this thread with some snaps ..
