two smoker; I also just purchased a TX500 recently. I was able to obtain a brief manual from ebay which is only about 5 pages long or so, but has very clear exploded diagrams of all of the major assemblies. Very useful in rebuilding the motor. It has JUST enough info in it. I'll see if I can't scan the pages for you on Monday. Also, I am working on making an entire gasket set with the CNC router at my work. The gaskets seem to be hard to find and expensive, so I just scan the originals into the computer and then send them out to the router, which cuts them out perfectly. Send me a PM and let me know if you are interested in the manual I have and if you might want a gasket set when I finish them.

oh, and does anybody have any sources for a head gasket?! I can't make those, since they have the copper insert.

Yeah.... I'll probably be spending quite a bit at Dime City Cycles.... Clipons, Mikunis, bar-end signals and mirrors, Acewell guages..... Man I'm gonna be soooo broke!

3 for 500 bones is a SOLID deal... Nice find man!
-Slice

So I found a deal I couldn't pass up- THREE XS500's for $500! Only one is titled and running (sorta), but it's better than none, yeah? I'll post pics as soon as I take some..... I have to actually pick the bikes up first... AND find someplace to keep them/work on the one. I probably shouldn't have bought them, but too late now! As an aside- If anyone needs parts, I'll let the parts bikes go for NOTHING if you come get them. Well... Once I get mine road-worthy. Wish me luck!
The difference between a 'bike builder' and a 'parts collector' is a fine line.

Can't wait to see what you do with these, bud! You're last build looked pretty sweet from the pic you had posted on facebook. Lemme know if you need any machining done, and I'll see what I can do for ya. I've got access to just about any equipment, but we're so buried at work so finding time to get to it is a bit of a challenge.

I appreciate it, Jake! Right now my main concern is getting the bike roadworthy... After that- well, I've got big plans....

just a quick progress report. Started work on my seat hump/reserve tank. Still need to weld in the new filler.

Looks crazy cool TS. There is a lot of potential in that $500 score.

Project 3 the Hard Way is on a little hiatus for a bit thanks to this damn snowstorm, but just a little update, I am in the process of ordering some Mikunis for it. I wish I had some pictures or more to say, but, alas I don't. Be patient!
