    Hey all, just wanted to share a little project that I decided to start. The bike is a 1978 kv75 that I picked up for a song. It was running according to the owner, but I have decided to strip it down and restore it. Just though this could be a good thread to discuss other restoration projects that people have done.

    Cool little bike! Brings back some funny memories of when I was young, my friend had one of those and I had a KM100, we swapped bikes and I somehow ended up riding his bike into a ditch and had it completely submerged:eek: We somehow got it out of the ditch and got it running, though not well! I like the style of the kv at it reminds me alot of the trail 70 which was my first bike. Look forward to seeing your progress!

    My brother had one when we were kids. He traded his atari 2600 for it, we had a blast with that thing! His was green. Good find.
