|The Yamaha AT1MX Replica Project
|Now that the brakes are ready and the
wheels are off, new tires go on. I got mine
at Cycle Gear, in San Francisco. around
$70 for the Michelin 21in/ s12 front and $35
for the 410x18 Kenda medium rear.I like this
combination. The Kenda has a nice classic
look, sticks reasonably well at a good price.
The Michelin can handle phenominal lean
angles and sticks like glue. While I was
there I picked up some 30x40.5x10.5mm
fork seals around $10 and 20wt fork oil,
about $9. Time to get the forks in shape.
Drain and disassemble the forks Once
appart the dampning rods should recieve
these modifications. Then reassemble fork
with new seals and 4 onces of 20wt fork oil
in each fork. A little more oil if you are
heavy or an aggresive rider. I got on the
Phone and called Sprocket Specialist in
Oroville Ca 1-800-782-8200. For the AT1 I
ordered 50 tooth rear,13 tooth front
sprockets and a D.I.D. Heavy duty 428
chain with shipping & tax it was $82.79.
Oroville to Napa I had the the next
afternoon! Good news I won the auction for
the AT1 fork brace on e-Bay $15.99 with
shipping from Texas.
|$124.00 Cycle Gear S.F
$ 82.79 Sprocket Spec.
$ 15.99 e-Bay
$ 65.00 Upholstery
$ 287.78 so far
|The bike was $300
Which I feel is a very
fair price for a running
Classic 125 MX racer.
The reason I mention
this is because you
have to remember if
you are going to start
racing to have a fast
safe bike it takes an
investment of usually
around $2000. This
|because I had the shocks
and some other stuff will
come in at just under
$1000. You could do it
cheaper but I honestly feel it
would not be competitive
