    Default 1997 joker bike

    Some of you know I bought a dirt bike, some don't. I figured I would share my build/ restoration project

    So here is my 97 220. It was purchased for $1,000 and sat for years in the last owners garage. As it can be expected, some issues have arisen, and some surprises. What the bike has:
    Rad valve
    Full FMF exhaust system fatty pipe
    Suspension set for my weight

    What I have done to it so far:
    All new suspension/swing arm bearings
    Repackaged silencer
    Fix dents in header
    New reeds
    New hand guards
    New pads
    New headlight on order
    Purple radiator covers
    New chain and sprockets

    Still have more things I need to do but I will update this post when I do. But all in for my first dirt bike for a new dirt rider, I'm happy

    Now just need to learn how to ride it.

    if you add the letter "l" (lowercase L) right before the ".jpg" then it will scale it appropriately. Like this: https://i.imgur.com/Y3Q5Gyfl.jpg
