Where are you in the UK? Not near Nottingham are you?
@Nottsbiker stoke bud why do you ask
Cleaned up some bits bolts and hardware to see what they will turn out like,
I Vaqua blasted them
some to paint/powder coat and others are to to get zinc plated will be replacing a lot with new ones too
Most Of them turned out great
Zinc plating makes them look like new again
Deep pitting where rust and been and scratches in the bolts does show up tho
Got some parts ready to send the powder coaters, they’ve all been Vaqua blasted and shot blasted ready

Wow, they've come up a treat.
@Calum cheers bud some look once powder coated too
Forks are in good condition no rusting or pitting on the stanchions so a strip and a clean and add progressive fork springs to improve the front suspension and course new seals
Tubes to be polished up to a chrome like finish
One project started and eying up my next for my little boy
A nice package has arrived for the Dt but what could it be
It’s the dt 200 engine 3ET engine ready to overhaul and drop in the freshly powder coated frame.
Will update the engine progress accordingly and plenty of pictures of stripping down.

Not to rain on the parade, I think it's slightly inferior to the 3XP00 engine. But let us know how you get on.
I think the ports are slightly different.

@Calum It's very inferior to the 3XP-4BF WR200. No Aux boost ports and very tame port timing.
@mhbikesnbits I'm liking the project man, should be sweet! The 3ET lump with some breathing mods will make a nice road going 2stroke. It's a very unstressed engine, plenty of torque down low. Kind of want one as well,
I didn't like the damage to the crankcase and the price of that one, but a good project base, keep us posted.
@Calum yes it is a little inferior to the 3xp engine but I really am dying to get a bike on the road so which is why I decided to bite the bullet and go with this with a a lot of thought, good thing about two strokes is they are well tuneable so I can see what I can get of the engine
@Darty as just said in previous comment two stokes tune up up well so can see what I can do there,
There was some damage to the case yes but the rest of the case is solid may be able to something to it to repair.
I had 3 options for the build for more power there 3et engine the 3xp and a Athena I can’t justify the Athena because I can just get a 200 engine for similar price sell my old and get money back but I couldn’t get a 3xp and as said previous just dying get on the road
Definitely going be amazing bike once finished I’m 110% sure of that
