As I mentioned in the earlier post, my bike is 1988 Escorts one.
Is it possible to source the speedo meter with Escorts logo from anywhere in India. I am ready to bear all the expenses for that.


PS: I am not able to edit the previous post, that's why posting a new reply

Some update on the rebuild. Because there is some rust, the chassis given for painting. Also planning to change the silencer as it got some damages and can not be repaired.

Some pics of the under seat.

As you can see there is small welding done because there was a hole in the frame.

Thanks for updating my thread title.

Update: I hope the bike came after repainting. My mechanic told he is going to collect the parts after painting. Hopefully I will be able to upload some pictures soon.

@rahul20_6 - If possible change the frame from an Yamaha ASC
When you get it painted, apply a metal primer first, followed by a base coat followed by 2-3 coats of paint; Finally apply clear coat or go with lacquer & silicon rubbing; this will give a bright look & very long life.

I hope you're aware that when you go in for a new silencer, you might get RXG/RX100 silencer & cannot expect Rx100's original beat.

Default Silencer Change

Please do not change your silencer. Use some rubbing compound to clean off the rust, don't worry too much about the dents. You will not get the original firing of the RX100 if you put a new silencer available in the market now...

@alstonvaz - you meant the beat & not the firing inside the engine right?

@Rahul - but there's a different way for the beat; but the thing is, the motorcycle needs to run; use the new RXG/RX100 muffler assy, but use the old (existing) silencer exhaust (locally known as core) & fit it in the new muffler assy. This is totally new muffler assembly, so you'll get a neat beat of the engine along with a clang sound of the metal. This will get away in due course with more carbon deposits - hope you got the point.

Sorry guys for not updating the status for a while.

The bike came back from painting and it is almost ready now. But I do not have any pictures now. I am currently outside India.

Once I get the pictures from my brother I will post the updates and pics here.

If its OE, then the price should've been around 1K; correct me if I'm wrong Rahul.
