Your bike looks great:thumbsup:
How much work to get it to look like that?

Is it just those type of shocks that are rebuildable or can most twin rear shocks be rebuilt?

Just the CR, MR, aluminum body are. MT, XL steel body are not rebuildable-they dont come apart. 78 cr250 gas shocks arent rebuildable. I dont know about other makes/models, but could tell by looking at them after the spring was removed. If there is a threaded cap where the shaft passes into the body then its rebuildable/re-fillable.

I've been looking for awhile now but since they were only made for one year they're hard to come by.
I did see one the other day on CL. but it was to much work to try and bring the ole gal back to life.
It looks like you got a good one motosprtman.

I'm trying to get an idea of what final ratio to start off with on the '77 motor. I won't need it to do the trials-bike thing like the '75, but I'd like it low enough to not need too much clutch slipping in tight woods.

I'm almost done with the MT/MR hybrid pipe experiment - it wan't quite as easy as I thought it would be, but at least now I know what's inside the MT125 and MR175 pipes (nothing impressive, believe me). I'll post back when it's done.
You don't happen to have a '77 MR175 mainshaft and countershaft 1st gear, do you? When my '75 gearbox finally gives out I'm going to try putting a mix-and-match 6-speed gearbox in it, using CR/MR/MT gears.
