1997 6-Speed RX-Z Restoration Project






I just bought this 1997 RX-Z last month. It was selling very cheap at only >RM500. Now, I’m trying to restore this bike to its glory when it was first bought.

Keep coming to this website to see what will happen to this bike.

Projek Pemulihan Semula RX-Z 1997 6-Kelajuan

Saya baru sahaja membeli RX-Z tahun 1997 6-kelajuan bulan lepas. Harganya amat murah iaitu >RM500. Sekarang, saya sedang mencuba untuk memulih semula motosikal kepada zaman kegemilangannya seperti mula-mula dibeli dahulu.

Teruskan melawat laman web ini untuk melihat apa yang akan berlaku kepada motosikal ini.

UPDATE: This RX-Z has been restored! Click here to view the new look.

Nuovo, Click, Step or Ego?

Saya telah ternampak motor ini di Kelantan semasa saya sedang mengisi minyak motor EX-5 saya. Jika anda perhatikan pada nombor plet motor ini, anda akan dapati nombor pendaftarannya tertulis NARATHIWAT. Jadi, ini adalah motosikal daripada Thailand.

Saya tidak dapat memastikan model motor ini. Namun begitu, ia begitu mirip dengan Yamaha Nuovo.

Ada sesiapa boleh bantu?

1. It is the only bike in its category that is available. Try to think for yourself, is there any other bike in this class?

Poll Result: What is your favourite type of engine(s)?

Votes received: 55

It seems that many chose 2-stroke as their favourite engine. This maybe due to 2-stroke have simpler design, lighter weight and more power.

Some also chose 4-stroke engine. Honda EX5, Yamaha Lagenda and Yamaha LC135 belong to this group of engine. 4-stroke produce less pollution and gives less noisy exhaust sound. One of my friend who owns LC135 tells me that he really loves the bike because he can cruise up to 140 km/h furiosly but still be almost silent.

There are two person who chose both engine as their favourite and only one person didn’t like engines. Hmm, I wonder why he/she visit this site then…
