KX Guru Racing KX500 Special bike It's like the mystery machine but better

Post by Sandblaster » Wed May 01, 2019 3:40 am

This is starting out as a very basic build.
Clean inspect, replace, polish, powder coat, ect to build a very nice clean stock chassis.
Humble beginnings.

Stripped, cleaned, painted, baked, clear coated, and baked again.
Why? Because I can :lol:

A little work on the Special bike revealed some real ugliness
