Post Project Snowball
So a simple clutch cable change and some minor maintenance of my old XR turned into this. Funny how little projects can snowball into much bigger ones. I dropped these parts off at Custom Metal Coatings today. Time for a full refresh of the dinosaur.

Just so you know I plan to cheat again, and squeak out another undeserved dueling tree victory.

Hey! No welding my side of the tree in place!

I better practice up with a pistol before then. I’ve been working on shooting 100-1000 yards lots more than up close and personal distances lately.

Post Re: Project Snowball
A little more progress. I need side panels. New OEM's are non-existent so I'm thinking Maier might be my only option. Mine are beat so I need something. I dug my speedometer/tripmeter out of my parts bin. It was cracked around the bottom from something I did long ago, I don't recall what exactly. I glued, taped and ran a big fat zip-tie around it. It functions and doesn't look bad from the top side. I saw a new old stock speedo unit recently selling for $350 :shock: Nope, not really interested in that. I bought a new speedo cable and then realized the drive gear that meshes into the wheel has the two ears broken off it so I found one, and only one, on Flea Bay for $35 + shipping. Probably a $9.99 part if Honda still made it. I can see how restoring old, obsolete shit can get expensive.

I need a few other odds and ends and it's as done as it going to get.

Are your side panels so beat they can't be cleaned up with some compound polish, or are they also busted beyond repair?
What color are your panels, and what years will fit?

Yep, they’re pretty cracked up.

My panels are Flash Red, aka orange. I think ‘84 and ‘85 bikes were the same but different than all other 200’s they made. RFVC 200R’s were only made two years.

I found a guy making OEM replica yellow number plate backgrounds so I ordered a set. I installed the background above the headlight and it came out pretty good.

I hate to suggest it...get either the black, white or silver Maier panels. It's gonna kill ya that they won't color-match but which Maier's red/orange is gonna match your vintage patina, even if you polish it up?
(Just so ya know, if your reds don't match, I don't ever wanna see it. :D)

I know it Fred. My OCD is what’s keeping me from ordering those panels. I know they won’t match for shit.
