'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 stepped away from this project from mid-summer until now due to lack of time, but just looking at all this KX stuff is getting me fired up to make sure I get it done for the Spring!! :)
