Hello!

A few months ago I brought home a stock 06 ltr in pretty good shape.. my brother at the time was riding a trx 450 and began to like the ltr to the point of selling his trx. Long story short, he sold his trx for a good price and picked up a very used and kind of beat up ltr for a ridiculously low price. His has race tech suspension all around, dominator II axle, steering stabilizer, decent nerfs, and a few other goodies. The mods it has are literally worth twice as much as the bike. Anyways.. since his was beat up we decided to tear it down to the frame and do a complete refresh. We then decided that it wouldn't be fair to only refresh one bike and not the other right? So we decided to tear both bikes down and completely rebuild them both. Both bikes will be getting everything cleaned, powder coated, or painted. Both bikes will be getting a fresh motor. I love to see people's rebuild threads so I thought i'd share. Enjoy!

Thanks! yes the rail is a very fun toy.. Got both bikes sent off to powdercoat and just picked them up yesterday, we got a killer deal. As always, the pictures don't do the job justice. The yellow has a much more vibrante greenish look in person.

That white one looks excellent great color scheme. How much did the powder coating run you? Im considering doing the same thing. I want my frame swing arm, a arms rims hubs handle bars and stem done.

Thanks guys! We got a good deal on powder coat, it cost us about $250 per quad for sandblast and powder. The price we got was really cheap, it just depends on where your at.

Thats a great price. If i find a shop that does it that cheap in sacramento CA then ill probably end up powder coating it.
