(2) 1984 White Spree's Restoration

Post by jerz40 » Fri Apr 07, 2017 8:28 pm

Hello all!
Most of you should know by now that I am heavily into restoring and refurbishing Honda Sprees. So I figured I would share a few restoring projects that I'm currently working on. Both are 1984 White Sprees. Both terribly deteriorating and rusting very badly. And both are from different sides of the USA. Once they arrived at Spree headquarters I got to work taking pictures and reviewing the damage and all that. The first one has severe rust damage to the rims, muffler, and engine. And with that being said the rear wheel was corroded and rusted so bad the transmission was locked right up with the wheel and unfortunately the motor was not salvageable. :( No biggie, I just rebuilt an 84-85 motor I had saved and will make a perfect back-up. 8) The second one, not as bad as the first one, motor was stuck but got it freed up with some WD-40, tranny spins smoothly, looks like it can be saved. :)

Today's the day! Time to get some paint on these! (After all the cleaning, sanding, and pre-cleaning of course) :)

And finally, I'll be dropping these frames off Monday to be blasted, and will be picking the plastics up afterwards. :)

Im sure your spare parts bin is extensive from all these restorations but if you need something random you don't have, Im sure the HS community would be happy to provide. I, for one, have plenty of random Spree doo-dads collecting dust. Good job on bringing these bad boys back from the dead, jerz!
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.
