Project DTZr.....a DT125R love story
Welcome to the DTZr, a love child of....1 bike with parts from other 3 and lot of ....love....parts.
A first year 4BL model,it began it's life somewhere in Germany and then came to Greece in 1996 to a rental shop,after that came to my possession.
Unfortunately most of the pics from early stages are lost,due to data corruption years ago in my HDD.
It's condition now is this
The 3 bikes from where parts used.
TZR 125 2RH gearbox and clutch assembly
TZR 250 3MA wheels,disc brakes,
DT 200R 3ET Forks with air valves,shock absorber,alloy swingarm,headlight,headlight mask,right radiator
DEP exhaust system
new Mikuni 28 with power jet kit to be fitted
parts in general.....
PS.I was going to buy a DT200R but every one found was raped at best.
Plastics where damaged and brush painted with car chassis paint.Grey stuff is putty for plastics.

Looking very smart bud. Loving the fact you're "Keeping it within the family" so to speak...
The crank before and after.
The cracnkcases,before and after cleaning and smoothed/matched/checked inside
TZR 125 2RH gearbox (one model of the old TZR had the same gear ratios with the TZR 125RR Belgarda),that one is fitted.
Had to find some different bearings to install,not same with the DT.
Repairing a hard to find DT200R 3ET alloy swing arm,and this considered good condition.

Hello,after a long time,it's a slow project due to some personal matters from time to time.
"Last minute" tuning to crankcases for matching,widening,angles retaining and "little" tuning to Athena cylinder/head (trasnfer port shape and sizes,exhaust port shape,size and timing,combustion chamber volume,compression)
Wheels condition when purchased and finished

@MadGyver Top job bro, have you resprayed them yourself???
Thank you all.
Yes almost everything is painted,machined by me,only an custom axle-spacers for the front-back wheel and a welding back of the frame tail base because of a broken bolt was done to a machine shop.
This is the frame after the paint removal and acid treatment for the rust,then painted,before paint,cold zinc was applied to the frame for rust protection.That stage and the frame in original condition was lost in the data corruption.
