Bought a DT125R -89 as my first motorcycle and have had a good time riding it, but a lot of things isn't to my liking so have been renovating it.
It was originally a white framed blue plastic one, but previous owner had painted plastics black, and painted the frame black, wherever it was easy to do so. It frankly looked like crap, so now I took the whole thing apart, gonna sand-blast it and get it powdercoated white again.
I am not gonna recreate the original look but instead I am aiming for the white/pink design that seemed to be a thing in the middle of the 90's.
For that to work out, I am gonna need some new fork-gaiters, and I feel like I have been looking all around the internet but I can barley find any gaiters that seems to fit the DT125R, even less pink ones... If anyone got links that would be appreciated.
If I can't find pink ones, at the very least I would like to get red ones, currently I have black ones.
Hazardgraphics, that I bought a reproduction decale-kit, have pics of what I am aiming for:
I found someone who sold reproduced pink seat-covers, with Yamaha text, so already got one of those.
Also found someone selling new production plastic pieces, so got all 4 side-covers. They where not as thick plastic as the original, but the originals I have have been repaired in many places already an doesn't look to good, so I am happy with what I can get.
Another thing I am looking for is good looking square mirrors, if anyone have tips on that I'd appreciate it.
This is how it's currently looking, or well, before I took it apart down to the frame last weekend!
Lot's of work left, hoping to get it looking real nice ready for spring in April.
