With the Honda CL125S Resto-mod that had been taking all my time and attention finally out of my workshop for good, I’ve turned my attention back to this unholy collection of mismatched parts. I’ve dragged my frame jig and Bultakenstein’s still-dead carcass out of the corners of the garage where they’d been a-molderin’ untouched for the last year and a half. At least it is back out into the light prior to its eighth birthday, coming up just five weeks from now.
Picking up where I left off, the first step is to get the DT175 swingarm properly mated to the frame. This morning, I got the frame bolted in the jig true and level, and I just ordered some additional jig furniture from Chop Source that will help me accurately align the frame and swingarm.
