1990 Honda PK50 (Wallaroo) rebuild

maikel wijnen /

Heya, I'm Maikel, and new here.I recently got my hands on a pretty abused Honda PK50, and started to restore/rebuild/customize it. Thought Some of you guys might be interested, so sharing the progress here.

So to start off, the only, and most crappy pic I have of when I got it.

reset the odometer, because it's gonna be a brand new one after all, so why not start from zero

Refurbed the tank yesterday. Flushed it, got it to bare metal and powdercoated it. New fuel valve found it’s place aswell. Also cleaned the mudflaps and bolted it all on.

Een Wallaroo staat ook nog altijd op mijn verlanglijstje, maar in België zijn ze een stuk makkelijker te vinden volgensmij.

Forgot to mention I also started primering the first body panels, can’t wait to get some color on them

I’m gonna awnser in English, since it is an english forum 😉

From my experience there are more Wallaroo’s in the netherlands then in Belgium. Or atleast spare parts are alot more available over there.

Re: 1990 Honda PK50 (Wallaroo) rebuild

Sweet bike, keep the pics coming.

Testfitted some new springs in the front. Quitte a difference. I’m gonna fit a wheel in it tonight to see if the gap is doable. And then off to blasting and coating, allong with the handle bars.

Automotive upholstery not up to your snuff? This seat is gonna last longer than the OG now. Super quality work all around!

The type material is fine .

It's the pattern on the material that is , well , not to my taste . ;)

Re: 1990 Honda PK50 (Wallaroo) rebuild

I feel ya, not my cup of tea either but it does give me lots of ideas for future styles on builds!

Re: 1990 Honda PK50 (Wallaroo) rebuild

Remade the front shock so the brake caliper could be mounted. still rough, but It’s just a mock up atm to see wich bolts and bushes i’ll have to use. And about the fabric on the seat, it’s gonna be a jdm inspired build, so this will look nice in combination with the colors and carbon
