1976 xs500 scrambler??
« on: February 01, 2017, 04:36:12 PM »
So I picked up a 76 model that the PO had hacked up the tail in trying to do like  a cafe racer type thing? Anyway I got it home, otherwise it was pretty clean and apparently only has 4k original miles on it according to the title and odo.  So far I have completely stripped the wiring out cleaned up some loose ends on the frame, replaced fork seals and mounted up some renthal mx bars.  Ill try to get some pics up soon.

Waiting to see some pics for sure, seeing as how I'll be doing a similar tracker/scrambler set up when mine is complete.

I'm unique, just like everyone else.

Still looks kinda ugly right now but I'm hoping the tx tank smooths everything out, still need to get my tires and powdercoat the wheels
