@Balenopower:- Is the swing arm the same as RX135's (Part# 36LF21101000 - REAR ARM WELDED)? Also, are the RXZ front flashers available off the shelf there or was any order placed?

Yes Sriram, the swing arm is the same as the RX 135's. I got the front flashers off the shelf only.

And she rises again. Barring a few minor niggles which need to be attended to she is running like a dream. The new rings have given her some extra pep. More daylight pics coming up.

Awesome bike there balenopower! Somehow in this unearthly hour in a long off country, you have re-ignited my passion to own a machine from the RX stable. I always have wanted to own a '100 and having come close to owning two poor examples with exorbitant price tags in the last few days, my search had almost come to an end when I chanced on your thread. There is nothing as exhilarating as riding a bike on the road with the wind on the face. Freedom.

Cheers

Hey Balenopower, I got my RX alright. Just restored to its glory, albeit not to my entire satisfaction. There are some things left to be desired. A picture of Niizo(that's her name)

Hello Sriram, my bike was registered in the year '89. But the model as in the RC book is '88. Atleast that is what I remember now. Thank you for your kind words.

B/Regards

And Sriram, the bike has been registered with the Thanjavur (read Southern Tamil Nadu) RTO.

Yes they are M45's. Front is a 2.50 and a 3.00 rear. Not the most easily available size for sure.

Thanks Balenopower. I somehow managed to get M45 4.00X18 (offcourse old stock) for my Karizma, however, 3.00X18 or 2.75X18 are not available here.
