    Default Usmc m1030b1

    I just bought two M1030B1's. One is a bit of a parts bike. My buddy and I split the total cost and he will get the better of the two bikes. I just need to find a black out light and switch. My bike is missing it but the other one has it. We are going to tear them down and restore them. I'm going with a desert tan paint job with CARC paint.image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    Nice! I remember scoring a ton of cheap take off parts for my KLRs when those were being converted to mil spec. Do they have the multifuel engines?

    Does anyone have any TM's for these bikes?

    I've emailed F1 Engineering and Hayes, awaiting response to see if they have any.

    I've searched SS and the Internet in general and can't find a thing.

    Thanks

    Default Bikes in!

    Got the bikes in today. They are both manufactured in June 1999 and the VIN states 2000 along with the USMC data plate. We started stripping them down. The plan is to sand blast and then powder coat the frame prior to painting everything in CARC tan.

    Nice, most of the bikes I have run across are dated that way also. The rare parts are the small part of the wiring harness in the "Net" loom along with the small rear skid plate, F1 mono shock, nerf bar, front & rear BO light, BO light switch, fuel tank. You are lucky on the goggle/tool bag being there on both bikes.

    I'm missing both gas tank caps. I'm having a tough time finding those. Any ideas?if I can't find those I will have to switch to the M1030M1 IMS tank with the cutouts. I'm also missing one front black out light and one nerf bar. Other then that the wiring looks good, the rear blackout lights are there, and the black out switches are there. Do you have a picture of the small rear skid plate? I'm not sure what that part looks like. We did luck out with the front tool bag.

    Almost got it all the way down to the frame. We are working on the "parts bike" now. Originally two were purchased with one being a "parts bike". We plan on getting both up and running. I found out that the rear skid plate is missing on one but we can get a fab shop to copy the one on the "good bike".

    Default UPDATE 8 October

    Most of the bolts are rusted on so the last few have been tough. I still haven't gotten the handle bars or swing arm off yet. I'm letting PB Blaster soak in overnight. It looks like the rear shock was a progressive 500/560. I know the newer version had the F1 engineering shock. I also ordered the stainless steel screw kit from Desmoparts. I will be replacing a few parts on the bike. I'm also going to use RAPCO 686 Tan. It's spot on for CARC. For the frame, bars, forks, and swing arm I'll sand blast and powder coat prior to painting.

    Got it down to just the frame and swingarm. Everything was rusted on. It took some MacGyver skills to get the handle bars and triple trees off. Anyone have any tips to get the "dog bones" off the swingarm? I should have done it when the rearend was together. now it's much tougher to get any leverage on them. I'll have some free time later this week to hit it again. Then the frame is off to sand blast and powder coat. The other bike remains untouched but the frame appears to be recently CARC'd. My buddy is going to keep that one green and I'll go for tan.

    Finally got the dog bones off with a air impact gun. I'm still having trouble with the pivot bolt. I removed the nut but the pivot bolt isn't coming out. I even used a pipe and hammer trying to bang it out. Any one have any ideas?
    We also blasted off some of the handlebars. This USMC handlebars has mounts for the brush guard. The welds still look great. Until we can get the pivot bolt out we are moving on to the other bike. This one is in much better shape. It won't need to be stripped to the frame. Hopefully we can get it up and running an then move to paint.
