Restoring A Basket Case Pit Bike

In late 2019, I purchased a 2006 CR85 for my wife. The bike was not running and the price was fantastic. I struck up a conversation with the seller who, during the course of our discussion, offered to give me non-operational 2007 Honda CRF70 Pit Bike. It was in such poor condition, I almost passed! However, the sad little bike looked like all it needed was to get “Mobley’d” and it could be its own little phoenix rising from what was clearly nothing but ashes! So, we lifted the sad little bike into the truck and laid it on its side – I only had one set of tie downs and they were going to be used on the CR85.
