Picked up this XT500 a few weeks ago not running and title-less in Tulsa for a reasonable price. Great start to a fantastic build I’d say!
I stripped it down to the frame, cleaned (or replaced) every nut and bolt, and painted everything a new color.
Bought some new parts, chain, sprockets, brakes, fork seals, gaskets, headlight and tail lights, air filter, bla bla bla.
As of now, I have the motor re-installed, and it is time to reassemble!
That’s what I’ve got so far, today I’m focusing on rebuilding the front forks, polishing the fork boots, cleaning, painting, and mounting the front wheel. pics will ensue.
