Thanks! I found this gem on CL for 600 bucks. She was badly neglected..New top end, bottom end, plastics, rubber, I could go on and on..So easy to work on, parts are really cheap as well.. And they're street legal!

Xr's will always hold a special place in my heart. Glad to see somebody taking care of one. :D


Sell the many to fund the few
Great work! Its nice to see people doing this. Nothing wrong with an older bike.

I did an 85 a while back. I got it in a box and was told nothing could be made from it.

Currently I am doing a 85 xl600 that I picked up for 250 bux
