That black paint should come off with a elbow grease. Nice find.

It's actually starting to chip off on it's own. Lucky that the PO didn't even sand the plastic!!! It's smooth and shiny underneath!

Anyway, I'm going to try this stuff:

Years ago, I stripped a thick layer of yellow paint off of a XR80 that some kid wanted to turn into an RM. I used Strip-Eze and it worked awesome, but couldn't find it at Lowes. So the Goof Off gets the next "Consumer Report". I will post on the effectiveness. :shades:

I found out what was wrong with the free IT175.
No such thing as a free lunch, but I'm still not complaining!

Bwaahahaha! I got lucky with a sled motor that looked like that, but it still had bearings. This is a one-piece crank. Let the soaking begin!
Yeah, gotta love chatting after a good ride! Your bike looked great too. Glad you got it together in time!

The threads and the case have become one.

Already drilled, hoping they would free up but it doesn't look like its happening.

Use a reverse cut drill bit, I get most bolts out with those and hardly ever have to use an easy out.

I don't know what this goo is, but I think it's mouse poo or something they packed in there. Got in the pipe and carb.

I had to chip that crap off to get to the rot. Located a set of mint cases on the West Coast. I'm good to go, hopefully.

Yup, my 400 was worse than that. I wound up parting the bike out and found another one a year later.

A FREE 1980 IT175 followed me home tonight. This thing is amazing. Missing only a side plate. The tires are original and the pegs have no wear on them. Even the kick start is tight!
The guy who gave it to me thought it was junk. I did too, until I got it home. And now it's on the lift!!! Gotta love the black spray paint. It can make anything look like junk lol!

You're right. OK everybody give your projects to Bill. He's already finished his project for the winter and he seems bored

Looking at my user control panel, I posted on the 2nd page of this thread back in 2014. It's too bad Photobucket F'd us by cutting off picture hosting to their free accounts. Looking through this and other threads a lot of us used them for pictures. Here is what I am going to pick-up on Saturday:

You know I messaged that guy that I wanted that bike and would come right away and he never got back to me. Congrats. I have been looking for another for awhile.
I say race that one. It is easier to start than the 430 if you stall or drop and way fun to race. EVO class
I have all the jetting mapped perfect for that bike if you need.
