'87 KX500 project

Post by 60something » Sat Jun 02, 2018 1:49 am

Finally got my engine all together after months of searching for parts. Working on the rest of the bike now. It started out as a "fix up", but snowballed into "make it like new". Thanks for all the advice Sandblaster! BTW, a couple of your gears are in there! :D

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
