I finally got a SRX
« on: April 02, 2009, 10:24:19 PM »
I recently aquired a 79 SRX. Thanks to fellow club member, Tim Spiegelhoff. Tim found this sled and new I would probably be interested, gave me a call. It didn't take long with Tim's detailed description I decided I had to have it and sent a check sight unseen. First got to see it Sundaynight, I was not disappointed this sled is complete, straight, and the motor runs perfect. I have always wanted an SRX, with the price they normally bring I thought the idea of getting one would be out of reach.  :thankyou: to Tim, I got mine! It needs garage time for shine, but thats just how I like'm  :thumb:
It is this kind of communication between clubmembers that can put the right vintager with the right vintage iron. I KNOW  :postpics:  Autolube

Awesome! Get some photos up. If you need me to take care of that, let me know, but give it a try first.

congraulations on your new baby! I know how it is to come across that special find. I have always wanted that special Starfire and have deceided to make my own until that one I can afford comes along. Clones can be fun too. Hope you make it as a rider.

Looks like it's already in pretty nice shape.

Above is a picture of the SRX.  :popcorn: Tim emailed it to me before I sled made it to my house. I haven't taken any pictures of it since.
I just got Mark, (our webmaster) to show me how to post pix. :thankyou: I will practice, get good at it and then perhaps I can chronicle the progression of the SRX restoration.  :o It is pretty well totally disassembled at this point.

I worked the better part of the day detailing the motor. I was pleased with the results, thought I would post a few pictures. Recently cleaned up and painted the pipes with a hi-temp (ceramic) paint. :angel: I hope it holds up to the heat.

I am now working on polishing the tunnel and belly pan. It is tedious, tough job.  :P Got the belly pan done on this picture with tunnel to go yet. It is turning out pretty good, not great. However I do want to ride this sled and I suppose if I got it to good I wouldn't want to put my boots on the running boards. :-\

Starting to work on skid restoration. Taking a bunch of pictures in hopes they will help me get it back together again. :catfight:
Thought I would post a couple BEFORE pix. Hopefully the AFTER pix won't be long off. ???
