    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Sold the latest tan bike already. Decided to start on the next one in a week or two. I’ll be keeping this one and it'll be the original green color. From the UIC code on the inventory tag, it looks like it belonged to H&S Company 3/6 2nd Marine Division. I pulled the engine a year or so ago to...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Got the tank on the bike. I installed the Raptor fuel petcock so it's now direct flow. Capped off the vacuum port on the carb. The IMS supplied tank mounting straps are always ill-fitting so I’ll be modifying them. Just need to rewire the gauge to work properly, get the faring and side plastics...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    I went ahead and painted two tanks with Monstaliner. It turned out ok but was a huge pain in the ass. Taping off the bolt holes / fuel petcock area was difficult since it required removing the tape after the second coat without touching the still wet tank. One is for the current bike (pictured)...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Got the bike started today. It shifts through all of the gears and the radiator fan works as well. Just have to sort out some gauge light issues, paint the tank, and get the plastics on.

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    I think the below paragraph explains it. I always get a good amount of questions about this bike so I think this sums it up pretty good. I've been getting the same questions about these bikes so I will try to explain it. The original M1030 was a KLR250 in the late 80's. Then Hayes Diversified...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Not sure what your asking here. If you mean what do these sell for when I’m done restoring it? I just put them on eBay and it goes for what it goes for.

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Finally got back to the restoration bike today. I’ve been building a few other non-Marine Corps bikes. The electrical had the most issues. Prior to starting Bike 6’s restoration it wouldn't even attempt to start and none of the lights worked. I finally got the headlight and tail lights to...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Started hooking up the front wiring and gauges. Once the headlight was plugged in the headlight and taillight came on without the key even in or turned to on. Seems like there’s a big electrical wiring issue. I’ll be working on that this week with a multimeter.

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Was working on my bike today completing the doohickey, oil change, replaced oil filter, and installed some foot peg lowering brackets I found in my stash from JNS engineering. After that I installed the USMC specific rear skid plate, OEM front skid plate, and USMC specific lower brush guard. It...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Decided to get the doohickey (balancer chain adjuster lever) done today. The stock spring and lever were all in one piece and still hooked up. I used the Eagle Mike lever, torsion spring, new rotor bolt, and a new inner and outer gasket. Took about 3 hours while taking my time. I also refilled...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Nothing really fancy today. I got the Deka ETX-15L battery. It’s an AGM battery that I use in my bike and all of the bikes I restore. It’s only about $75 on Amazon. I also replaced all of the fuses. In the main I use 20 and 15. I know it calls for a 10 but sometimes when you switch the headlight...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    I moved the rear turn signals to front (since they are shorter) and used the stalk delete (from 3D Cycle Parts) on the front signals and moved them to the rear (won’t break in a layover). Put the on the X-ring chain, rear brake pedal, rebuilt carb (capped vacuum port for raptor fuel petcock...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Got the rear brake in with new EBC break pads. Just need to get the master cylinder cover on and brake pedal installed. Still contemplating if I want to do the doohickey. The engine only has 566 miles on it. Also got a few things buttoned up on the wiring harness. I was able to get the radiator...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Finally got the wiring harness into the bike. Just need to get the headlight bracket in to connect the front end wires. Just got my custom made stencils in. I had a company reproduce them from measurements of the existing ones. I basically just scrap them off with a razor blade. Most military...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Just did a few basic things today. I replaced the engine filler cap and drain plug with ones from Eagle Mike. I installed the exhaust (painted with high temp paint) with all new hardware for the exhaust shields, replaced the exhaust pipe gasket, and muffler join gasket. I put in a new oil filter...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Finally got the engine in. Just need to clean it up and replace the hoses. Tomorrow I’ll get the wiring harness in. I also cleaned the last 4 carbs for the bikes I have left (only 3). Just waiting on the rebuild kits from Eagle Mike.

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Found a new set of sealed rear wheel bearings in my parts bins. Replaced the incorrect smaller diameter bearing and got the rear wheel and axle bolt on. Fought the grips on to the handlebars and put on the handlebar brush guards. I was going to rebuild the carburetor but just realized I was sent...

    USMC M1030B1 Restoration

    Got the latest front fork on, new fork boots, front fender, and fender bag. I also set the steering neck bearings and attempted to get the rear axle bolt in. I’m still having the same issue. I finally took the rear wheel off and noticed that the sprocket side wheel bearing had the incorrect...
