lol... just restarted after about a year off.

Brad saved my ass with some parts and I've also collected a few other pieces. I still need badges and maybe some controls.

Yup. Only took about a year. :P

Seriously contemplating having some reproductions made. I can't be the only guy after one of these.

Going to have to start watching all the T500 builds with my KZ nearing complete and the MT almost done, my T500 is next on the list.

The right carb looks like the 32mm off my 74, the one on the left looks like an original 34mm.

Yup. Carbs are mismatched. One is the original from a '68 and the other is from a later year. *sigh*
