Ive noticed a lot of you guys like your older bikes well here is my first ever build, I swapped this old 1983 jr50 for a job about 8 years ago and it has been sitting since, my boys are getting big now so time for a spruce up, here it is the before shot

I was originally going to rat rod it but now im glad I didnt, so I stripped it back, Added some paint and got some new forks from Ebay

but look at how much fun he is having, lol
he isnt even close to riding so the wheels are pretty much a stand for the bike, he cant even hold the weight of the bike yet, here is a pic of my older boys jr
