Best of luck as that thing is AWESOME! It looks like maybe it was restored? 6500 miles and an 82 and it looks waaaay to clean, not impossible to do, but most people dont take care of smaller bikes...

Nice find!

UPDATE!!!

So I decided not to do anything to the Tonka Yellow Motra as it is too rare and too minty to even consider doing a swap or anything ridiculous.

..... So I picked up a shittier one :mrgreen:

Image

Back home with it's little sis
Image

Oooooh DANG! Custom .... :wasted:
Image

So this little fella is getting the full build treatment.

New Paint, cosmetics, lights, etc .... and of course doing a very beefy little motor swap.

One stock Motra, and one custom Motra. Now I get to have my cake and eat it too!! :highfive:

Crazy smiley justified.

The picture's deceiving, it's pretty beat up and has some rusting that needs to be cleaned out. Also missing the front body panels/arms which I either need to have fabricated here or order from Japan and end up spending about 300 dollars. The motor barely runs, but it might just be a carb issue.

It may not sound like much, but it was enough to justify doing a build on it, especially because my other one is pretty mint already. :wasted:

First a gorgeous yellow beauty, then out of no where, a tuff green soldier..
You've got a Motra factory hidden up your ass, don't you? :dubious:

Drop it, stretch it, and clean up the front end.
:popcorn:

only had problem with insurance trying to add it online
over the phone was no problem



how many miles on it, may have to go to chp
you know how they want that 7500 mile thing on the odometer or something for out of state bikes


Has a little over 10,000 Kilo on it, so about 6,500. I heard the same thing for out of state bikes as far as mileage. I'm just gonna keep going on with the registration process until I hit a snag, then I'll figure it out. For now though I have the appointment, the DMV rule that states I don't need CA emissions sticker for under 50cc, and a bike which seems to meet every requirement to be registered in CA (all lights working and visible, brakes, etc etc etc).

So it's just keep fingers crossed and pretend like I've done this a million times. :wasted:

Wow!! Have not checked this thread in a while!!

Time to get on it with some updates.

SO yes as mentioned I was able to register them both here in San Diego. I've been PMing with ehonda80 and his should be good to go to register in no time!! As far as I know him and I run the Motra scene here in Cali :army:, with tongue firmly planted in cheek of course.

The yellow one will stay as is 100%.

My "Tuff Green Soldier" is now all gutted and ready for some swap action.

Awesome home made kickstand!
Image

The motor lines up perfectly with the stock motor mounts!!! So bloody stoked on that!!! :banger: :highfive: :banger:
Image

Now I just have to finish tearing it down to beef up swing arm, suspension, and brakes.... not to mention cleaning up minor rust, sand blasting, and painting/powdercoating!!!

Awwwww yeeeeeeeeeee 8)
