1982 PE175
« on: December 20, 2013, 05:52:09 PM »
I have wanted another project for a couple years, but being busy in school I didn't have time. Last night I drug this 1982 PE175 home. Today I reduced it to the frame and baggies of labeled parts. I am going to do as close to an original restore as I can.

I plan to get into the engine tomorrow. My arm gave out by the time I had it basically down to the frame. Some clown welded the shifter on so that's going to be a pain in the butt. Some people shouldn't be allowed to work on motorcycles.

This will be a slow, long term project. I will update with any new pics or progress.

If you don't fall off you are not going hard enough

A found out last night a friend has access to powder coating and all it will cost me is materials. So the frame and any small parts like brake lever are going to get powder. I planned to paint that stuff to keep costs down but not now.

Kiwi your RM post is what really ignited my project bike fire again. I was re-reading it the other week. I haven't done one in 3 years or so. I'm ready.

Those full floater rear ends are supposed to be the bomb, looking forward to the rebuild AND a ride report.
175 is just about the perfect engine size IMHO.

Cool project. How do you plan on removing the shifter? Curious minds want to know

Air tools are your friend. I ground the weld down and it came off fairly easily.

Ahhh I see. I was assuming it was a decent weld that might of had some penetration and really made it a pain. One less head ache for ya though. Good luck with the build!

LOL. I've never done much powder coating on my bike projects due to cost. But I can't turn this down.

cnrcpla it did. The shaft is ruined. But I needed the shifter off to get that side case off.

I tore into the engine yesterday and stripped the frame completely so I can get it ready to blast then powder.

The piston is cracked, and shows signs of significant wear. Oddly the cylinder is about perfect. All the bearings spin smoothly and are tight. There is zero up/down play in the big end and no play in the crank bearings. I plan to split the cases and change them all since I don't know how long they have been in there, but I am surprised with how tight they all are. The bike has a 1.5mm overbore; I was hoping for stock size but figured my chances were slim on that. Doesn't look like any of the cylinder companies have anything for it. My original thought was have Millennium, or similar company, return it to stock bore but nobody even makes a sleeve for it that I can find so my options here are limited.
